California Speaks: How has the opioid crisis affected you?

Jul 3, 2018

 

The statewide community project California Speaks, based here at KALW, recently asked listeners this question: “How has the opioid crisis affected your community, and what should be done about it?”

 

We heard from a range of people — intimate stories deeply exploring tragedies and solutions. We wanted to share some of them, at length, with you today.
