Journalist and father of 3, Bob Diggles, has spent a year getting to know
the drug landscape in the UK. On this podcast Bob meets scientists, criminologists, festival organisers, musicians, politicians, bereaved parents and many more people with fascinating narcotic insight. He then discusses those interviews with his teenage son in an open, honest and definitely not cringingly embarrassing hip-dad way.
