Beth Macy & opioid crisis episode was fantastic

I learned so much. You said it, Ben, thank God there are people like her doing this important work so that we don’t lose generations of people. I’m an Avett Bros fan and stumbled onto this podcast from there. Thank you Bob and Ben.
Lots of love from Phx.

Bob Avett (LOL)

Started listening because of the familiarity with Bob Crawford through the Avett Brothers and immediately got hooked by his and Ben’s knowledge of history and their ability to translate it. Truly gives a picture of the road to now.

Love it -cut to the chase

I LOVE the content in this podcast. The opioid episode is just fantastic. Thank you. I’d love it even more if I didn’t have to sit through 10 min of promos at the start. There has to be a better way.
