DPA Podcast Episode 25: Ben Westhoff's Journey into Fentanyl Production and Harm Reduction

Over the last few years, we’ve seen huge increases in opioid overdose deaths, and many of them can be traced to powerful synthetic opioids like fentanyl. Drugs & Stuff is back with journalist Ben Westhoff, whose new book Fentanyl, Inc. chronicles his incredible four-year investigation into the world of novel psychoactive substances (NPS). Ben sat down with DPA’s Stefanie Jones to talk about his journey from first hearing about NPS at festivals, tracing the production line into China, and learning about the harm reduction practices working to stem the tide of fatal opioid overdoses.
