Joe Schwarcz ("Dr. Joe" to his students), an award winning chemistry professor, and the director of the McGill's Office for Science & Society at McGill University in Montreal is a well known lecturer, book author, columnist, and host of a weekly radio show. Joe's specialty is demystifying science to the public, which he does with a flair. Schwarcz also hosts "The Dr. Joe Show" on Montreal's CJAD and has appeared hundreds of times on The Discovery Channel, CTV, CBC, TV Ontario and Global Television.
Joe, a long time friend of the Council, read about my harrowing experience as a victim of overly restrictive opioid laws and asked me to appear on his show. Despite a whopping case of laryngitis (usually just splendid for a radio interview) I spoke with him about my own experience as well as the ridiculous laws that deny patients medicines they need.
A podcast of my interview with Joe on his January 8th show on CJAD radio can be found here. The interview begins at 7:00.
