    Filter’s Editor Discusses Our Mission—And the Problems With Wider Media Coverage of Drugs

    Filter‘s editor-in-chief, Will Godfrey, was interviewed for the April 3 episode of Narcotica—a podcast about drugs and the people who use them, co-hosted by three prominent journalists in the field: Zachary Siegel and Filter contributors Christopher Moraff and Troy Farah.

    Their wide-ranging conversation covered Filter‘s genesis, mission and role in this space, including our tobacco harm reduction work; the many problems with drug coverage in traditional media; allies and advocacy; and the important work of Filter contributors such as Tessie Castillo and Kat Humphries.

    Narcotica was kind enough to describe Filter as “one place that has consistently gotten it right.”
