Very Compelling!

Bone chilling in his calm and matter-of-fact delivery, Jeffrey describes in fascinating detail the tactics employed by corporate America to put profits over people. Everyday folks are left holding the bag while those who created the problem get away with murder. Jeffrey provides a rare glimpse into the inter workings of the opioid machine and the corporate greed that built and fueled it. Highly recommend.

The rare binge-worthy podcast

This is a thorough and riveting analysis of the root causes of the opioid epidemic and its impacts. Parts of the opioid story can be found in other places, but having it all in one place really emphasizes the threads of the story and how and why this public health crisis happened. I was sad to reach the last episode.
