    Never Enough: The Neuroscience and Experience of Addiction

    Dr. Judith Grisel, former addict and current behavioral neuroscientist, joins Breht to discuss her life experiences and her fascinating book "Never Enough: The Neuroscience and Experience of Addiction".

    We discuss how addiction works at the level of the brain and how it feels at the level of experience. We also discuss multiple substances specifically, including marijuana, alcohol, caffeine, MDMA, and more. At the end, we talk about policy approaches to addiction, how America gets it wrong, how we should approach it societally, and then Judy offers some tips for how to prevent addiction and some hope for those who are struggling with it.
