Tangentially Speaking

Organic, revealing conversation with fascinating, freaky folks.
Ever wanted to hang with a dominatrix, comedian, famous health guru, or Italian prince? Here's your chance. Tangentially Speaking is dedicated to the idea that good conversation is organic, revelatory, and free to go down unexpected paths.

38 - Carl Hart


Dr. Carl Hart is a badass intellectual. His book, High Price, tells the story of his journey from the bad part of Miami to the upper reaches of Ivy League academia.  In this conversation, we talk about why drugs are so hard for our society to get real about, and how often they've been political weapons used against marginalized populations—and how antithetical to good research these political uses are.
