Drugs Won The War on Drugs. Who Lost, and at What Cost?
The War on Drugs has exacerbated most of the problems it claimed it could fix, costing the United States $1 trillion dollars and wrecking millions of lives, while disproportionally targeting black men.
This episode we look deeper into the reality of modern day prohibition and discuss the drawbacks of a lack in drug education and the ramifications of strong drug laws.
How dangerous are drugs? Would you want all drugs to be legalised?

Utopia for All?
We discuss everyone's vision of Utopia, and how anyone can be happy when so many aren't. Must everyone sacrifice their freedom for someone else's vision of the greater good?
Most revolutionaries plot for a better future, but how can there be a Utopia, if only a minority want it?
As is often the case when we chew on a huge topic, we don't have all the answers, but we have a great discussion around the big questions.

Beyond Gender Binary with the Holy Tranity's Insanelyshane
JK Rowling's blog defending TERFS and the letter that followed promoted another round of discussion on Trans and non-binary rights, the problems with Cancel Culture, and worries of 1984 wrongthink wokescolding.
We discuss with Trans Activist and stand up comedian what JK got wrong, and whether people are allowed to make mistakes in these conversations without moral panic?
Despite the Left's recent claims that cancel culture is just feedback for bigots, there are cases that prove it's alive and awful.
A Nuanced and British Discussion of Black Lives Matter

Does "playing the race card" and toppling statues make things worse in a multicultural society?
Jamie Mackie's songs features at the end.

This is a great podcast and you deserve it to yourself to hit that subscribe button immediately. This pod goes down some serious rabbit holes that most wouldn’t even consider and have some serious rhetorical skills to dig that little extra deeper.
This crew is smart, informed, and well reasoned. If you’re not listening in, you’re missing out.
I really enjoyed the vegan episode. I've subscribed, and plan on listening more.
