What's the crack?
What’s the Crack is a bi-monthly podcast aimed at a non-specialist audience with an interest in drugs, addiction, mental health and drug policy.
Our podcast was created from the increasing frustration we had from news stories misrepresenting our field. We felt that the media only provided a quick overview or a stigmatizing viewpoint of drugs and drug addiction. Drugs and addiction are complex topics and intersect physical health, mental health, social issues, society, criminal justice and the individual. Our podcast aims to add these layers to hot topics in the media. What’s the Crack explores the headlines and brings the research from academia to the public.
