Pulse of Seattle

Love this podcast. It keeps me up to date on what is going on in Seattle. Even more the expert guests have provided insight into topics of broad interest beyond Seattle. Patricia Murphy is an excellent interviewer.

Fentanyl

Let’s be clear, the stigma of criminality surrounding drug use is not the act of taking the drug, it’s what the drug addict does to get another dose and what they do while they’re out of their minds on drugs. I had a family member who was a drug addict, he was a thief and robber who would steal a starving child’s only meal if it meant he could use it to buy drugs. He was constantly in jail and prison, not for his drug use but for his constant thievery. He’s dead now, and thank god. He stole and he robbed and he had no remorse. His drug was his god and everyone else be damned.

Marshall Law Band

I usually listen to this daily, but I took a break from podcasts for a few weeks and just started catching up. So glad I caught this end of the year re-broadcast. I just purchased the Marshall Law Band 12th & Pine album and I’m hooked. I’m also happy to support what sounds like a great team that is doing the work physically, mentally, and emotionally. Thanks for the introduction!
