Erin Yanke and I completed the first two episodes a new podcast about harm reduction called Bright Spark. With this podcast we will focus on people doing creative work in harm reduction and overdose prevention. The first episode is an interview with the Canadian nurse and activist Marilou Gagnon, who was the spokesperson for a direct-action overdose prevention site run by the group Overdose Prevention Ottawa this last fall. The second episode is with Erin Haas, the assistant director in the office of prevention at the Maryland Department of health who talks about trying to bring harm reduction strategies into government.
