John Knefel // The Solvable Opioid Crisis
Video Dispatch | ep39 | Nov 2, 2017
Despite declaring the opioid crisis a public health emergency in late October, President Trump has failed to suggest a specific course of action or propose funding to address the crisis. John Knefel outlines some of the measures the U.S. can take to start dealing with this crisis, which have proven records of success in other countries.

Molly and John Knefel are hosts of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch.

Music featured in the episode: "Untitled" by Tiny Victories
