DPA Podcast Episode 16: Catching up with Maria, DPA’s Executive Director

This week we sat down with Maria McFarland Sánchez-Moreno, DPA’s executive director. We had a lot to catch up about since the last time she was on the show back in October 2017. Her new book, There Are No Dead Here: A Story of Murder and Denial in Colombia, was released in February and Maria explains how it created a little bit of controversy with a former Colombian president. We also talked about how DPA has been responding to Trump’s calls to ramp up the drug war, what’s needed to address the overdose crisis, and the future of marijuana legalization.
