    Episode 103: "We Would Have Preferred Phish, Not Actual Fish" And Other Roadblocks While Fighting The Drug War

    Episode 103: "We Would Have Preferred Phish, Not Actual Fish" And Other Roadblocks While Fighting The Drug War

    In this Episode: 
    Derek Rosenfeld and Tommy McDonald from the The Drug Policy Alliance join The Bartender to talk about various obstacles they've experienced working to end the war on drugs. Derek recounts one bizarre tactic to deter a peaceful protest that involved dead fish, (not to be confused with his favorite band Phish), and Tommy recalls celebrating one of the proudest accomplishment of his career during one of the worst nights of his life.
    PLUS Katharine shares audio of a beautiful speech her sister gave while accepting an award on behalf of her law firm's pro-bono work for helping abused women and children! UNFORTUNATELY the audio also caught a sexist remark from a nearby attendant/colleague about her sister's personal appearance as she took the stage to share an emotional story about their abusive father. So Katharine ends the episode with her feelings about that.

Wonderful Stories with a Great Host

Some stories make me cry laughing, some touch my heart, and some are quite educational. Katharine does a fantastic job as host, leading guests through their stories. A great human interest podcast. Also, check out The Struggle Bus, which Katharine co-hosts with Sally Tamarkin. <3
