  • Eye opening, informative, incredible journalism

    I’ve started this podcast from the beginning and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the effects of Canada’s drug policies, how they and the housing crisis affect the marginalized, what is needed. If you want to hear voices you never normally hear, voices you should hear, this is a great place to start.

  • Brilliant

    This is one of the best and most educational podcasts I’ve listened to. Garth at the helm is a standout but I know the rest of the team are also invaluable.

Thank you!
