Say Why to Drugs
This worthy project from Dr Suzi Gage, a British psychologist, comes with the cool kid endorsement of her co-host, rapper and podcaster Scroobius Pip (the show is part of Scroobius' own podcast network, led by Distraction Pieces). In it, Gage dispenses clear, science-based, judgement-free advice about every drug you can imagine, from alcohol to amphetamines, caffeine to ketamine. The aim is not to endorse drug use, but to clear away the folk knowledge that has grown up around these substances, and address their properties and risks directly. Gage is bracingly frank, as she ought to be, while Scroobius plays the part of the audience, reflecting on his own experiences and often awed by the science. More than 20 comprehensive episodes are available now.
