Tale Of Woe. On The Radio. With Dr. Joe

Related articles

Joe Schwarcz ("Dr. Joe" to his students), an award winning chemistry professor, and the director of the McGill's Office for Science & Society at McGill University in Montreal is a well known lecturer, book author, columnist, and host of a weekly radio show. Joe's specialty is demystifying science to the public, which he does with a flair. Schwarcz also hosts "The Dr. Joe Show" on Montreal's CJAD and has appeared hundreds of times on The Discovery Channel, CTV, CBC, TV Ontario and Global Television.

Joe, a long time friend of the Council, read about my harrowing experience as a victim of overly restrictive opioid laws and asked me to appear on his show. Despite a whopping case of laryngitis (usually just splendid for a radio interview) I spoke with him about my own experience as well as the ridiculous laws that deny patients medicines they need.

A podcast of my interview with Joe on his January 8th show on CJAD radio can be found here. The interview begins at 7:00.
