Now What? Fractured Communities

This year, our summer series centers around our new book, https://www.amazon.com/Now-What-Forward-Basically-Everything/dp/0800740807/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1QZTADS1LYUXR&keywords=now%20what%20beth%20silvers&qid=1657825480&sprefix=now%20what%2Caps%2C293&sr=8-1. We brought together groups of listeners who were on our book launch team to discuss how they’ve seen political conflict play out in their own lives. Over these episodes, we’ll share these conversations with you, along with some thoughts and strategies for how to navigate division in many different types of relationship. In this final episode, we’re discussing workplaces and geographic communities. We may expect some conflict in these spaces, particularly if we live or work in diverse areas. However, expecting the division doesn’t make it any easier or less personal.

Introducing Revisionist History: The Triplicate Program and Opioid Epidemic

We’re sharing a bonus episode from our friends at Revisionist History, Malcolm Gladwell’s podcast about things misunderstood and overlooked. This season, Malcolm’s obsessed with experiments – natural experiments, scientific experiments, thought experiments. In this preview, we learn about Paul Madden, who ran the California Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement in the 1930s. He enacted an expensive, burdensome, annoying bit of bureaucratic anti-drug hysteria known as the “triplicate program” that made every doctor in the state miserable because it involved a lot of paperwork. But Madden insisted this kind of paperwork would save lives. Fast forward to the 90s and early 2000s, when opioids were being prescribed as painkillers at a rapid rate – and killing tens of thousands of Americans due to overdoses. The government looked to Madden’s triplicate program as a way of preventing the epidemic. A handful of states started their own triplicate prescription programs, but most ignored the warning signs. The result was a devastating natural experiment.
