Bonus: The Uncertain Hour season 3 premiere

March 23, 2019

Our documentary podcast The Uncertain Hour is going inside America's drug war this season. We're starting with the strange and little-known story of how, 30 years ago, George H.W. Bush came to hold up an baggie of crack in his first televised speech in the Oval Office — a baggie he said was seized in front of the White House. Later, we'll explore how the policies Bush launched reverberate through today's opioid crisis, trying to answer the question: How does an epidemic end? Subscribe to The Uncertain Hour here or wherever you get your podcasts so you don't miss a thing.
