The Local Lens is a public health podcast going inside one community's experience with the drug epidemic. Everyone in the town of Stanton, KY sees this drug issue differently from each other, either because of their personal lives or professional roles. This show aims to showcase those different perspectives by having honest, in-depth interviews.
In our previous episode, we started to learn about Franklin County's Just Say Yes program (listen to that episode here). In this episode, we're going into the "why" behind it all, both in Frankfort's Just Say Yes program and in any form of public work.
We don't shy away from theory, we talk about intentions and having our actions match our intentions, we talk about what justifies government spending.
It's a can of worms, and it's likely our final episode. Welcome to it, folks. These are our people, using our voices, telling our stories, because no one sees it like we do.
