We released the fourth episode of Dope Stories around Midnight. If you subscribed to us via iTunes, then the new episode should have download automatically.
Oh boy. It's a doozy, and it's not because Shane bought a $20 scratch off ticket. We touched on a couple of things (degen scratch offs, optimal Jeopardy strategy, my chronic insomnia and how I think George Clinton is an alien) but the main topic is Crack 101.
Consider the newest episode of Dope Stories as an introductory course with Shane as your professor. Shane wrote a little something on his blog about his "love/hate relationship" with crack.
This is a truly revealing episode about crack cocaine. Growing up in the NYC in the 80s, it was impossible not to hear the anti-crack propaganda from Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No" campaign to Keith Harring's murals ("Crack Is Wack!"). In fact, when I took an express bus to high school every morning, I'd pass the Crack Is Wack mural (on 128th Street) on the Harlem River Drive.
