32. Drug Consumption Rooms with Peter Krykant
Peter Krykant previously used intravenous drugs whilst living homeless in Birmingham. His lived experience has shown him the benefits of drug consumption rooms; to prevent the spread of bloodborne diseases and protect people who use drugs from accidental overdose. Seven weeks ago, Peter set up the first UK drug consumption room which attracted the attention of the BBC and the local police force. Scotland's Lord Advocate and the Chief Constable of Police Scotland has made it clear that such activities violate national law. However, the local police force has not intervened with Peter’s operation. Peter is advocating to expand these services to multiple localities with the inclusion of trained medical professionals at each site. This intervention offers a unique insight to gather observational data on UK intravenous drug use. It could be the stepping stone needed to tackle the increasing number of UK drug-related deaths. https://twitter.com/PeterKrykant (Peter Krykant twitter) https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/info/20006/housing/1499/rough_sleeping (Birmingham rough sleepers’ team) https://drugscience.org.uk/drug-information/methadone/ (Methadone ) https://drugscience.org.uk/drug-information/benzodiazepines/ (Diazepam ) https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/news/politics/scottish-politics/1160888/analysis-after-two-days-of-drugs-death-conferences-in-glasgow-are-we-any-closer-to-finding-solutions/ (Drug Death summit 27th Feb Scotland 2020 ) https://www.theguardian.com/world/commentisfree/2018/nov/21/fixing-rooms-saving-lives-drug-addicts (Copenhagen Drug Consumption Room) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naloxone (Naloxone ) https://www.gofundme.com/f/overdose-prevention-glasgow (CrowdFunder page ) https://twitter.com/PaulJSweeney/status/1314526053310889984?s=20 (Site 2 – Gazebo ) https://www.scotland.police.uk/about-us/police-scotland/executive-team/chief-constable/ (Scotland's Lord Advocate and the Chief Constable of Police Scotland) http://www.sdf.org.uk/heroin-assisted-treatment-provided-glasgow/ (Heroin assisted-treatment) https://www.recovery.org.uk/methadone-addiction/methadone-addiction-treatment/ (Methadone programmes) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronnie_Cowan_(politician) (Ronnie Cowan) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alison_Thewliss (Alison Thewliss) https://www.changegrowlive.org/ (ChangeGrowLive) https://www.safeconsumptionglasgow.com/ (Safe Consumption Glasgow) Become a Drug Science Community Member: https://www.donate.drugscience.org.uk/ (https://www.donate.drugscience.org.uk/) Twitter: https://twitter.com/ProfDavidNutt (@ProfDavidNutt) https://twitter.com/Drug_Science (@Drug_Science) A https://fascinateproductions.co.uk/ (Fascinate Productions) podcast for Drug Science

Episode 60: Nanabah Bulman
Hello and welcome to the Baha’i Blogcast with me your host, Rainn Wilson. In this series of podcasts I interview members of the Baha’i Faith and friends from all over the world about their hearts, and minds, and souls, their spiritual journeys, what they’re interested in, and what makes them tick. In this episode, I'm joined via zoom by the wonderful Nanabah Bulman, a Navajo Baha'i who's been actively engaged in service to her people, especially with the youth. Nanabah tells us about life on the reservation, and shares Navajo culture and beliefs, and what we can learn from the Native Americans. She tells us the Navajo legend of the Twin Brothers, and explains how she strives to live up to the meaning of her name. I hope you enjoy this awesome conversation!

Man is organic with the world. His inner life moulds the environment and is itself also deeply affected by it. The one acts upon the other and every abiding change in the life of man is the result of these mutual reactions." -Shoghi Effendi * QUOTE: "We must build the capacity to truly hear and acknowledge the voices of those who have directly suffered from the effects of racism. This capacity should manifest itself in our schools, the media, and other civic arenas, as well as in our work and personal relations. This should not end with words, but lead to meaningful, constructive action." -National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of the United States, 19 June, 2020 Be sure to subscribe to the Baha’i Blogcast for more episodes on: * YouTube: http://bit.ly/2JTNmBO * iTunes: http://apple.co/2leHPHL * Soundcloud: https://bit.ly/30dX0G4 * Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2IXRAnb If you would like to find out more about the Baha'i Faith visit BAHAI.ORG, and for more great Baha'i-inspired content, check out BAHAIBLOG.NET: http://bahaiblog.net/ Thanks for listening! -Rainn Wilson

Shakespeare and "Game of Thrones"
Based on his knowledge of Shakespeare’s Henry VI plays, Dr. Jeffrey R. Wilson of Harvard University knew just how HBO's "Game of Thrones" would play out. Jon Snow, the illegitimate son, was a Richard III type, who would win the crown (and our hearts). But Daenerys Targaryen, as a kind of Henry VII, would defeat him in battle and win it back, restoring peace and order. Turns out he was wrong about all of that. But as Wilson kept watching, he began to appreciate the other ways "Game of Thrones" is similar to Shakespeare—like the way that both Shakespeare and George R.R. Martin’s stories translate the history of the Wars of the Roses into other popular genres. Jeff Wilson’s new book, "Shakespeare and 'Game of Thrones,'" explores some of the ways that Shakespeare influenced "Game of Thrones"… as well as some of the ways that "Game of Thrones" has begun to influence Shakespeare. Wilson is interviewed by Barbara Bogaev. Dr. Jeffrey R. Wilson is a faculty member in the Writing Program at Harvard University, where he teaches the Why Shakespeare? section of the University's first-year writing course. His new book, "Shakespeare and 'Game of Thrones,'" was published by Routledge in 2020. From the Shakespeare Unlimited podcast. Published January 19, 2021. © Folger Shakespeare Library.

Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com Nan Griffin emailed: "Hi, I see your other podcasts on there and your music too and was wondering if your podcast, Irish and Celtic Music Podcast, will show up on Spotify anytime soon? Please advise and thanks" Georgy Grigoryev asked the same question. I told him the same answer I told Nan. He replied: "oh dang! it's a terrible decision from their side! Thanks for the podacst anyway! My favourite one and not like "oh I don't know they are all great" but truly honestly the most loved podcast!" Teddy Zeitlin emailed: "I just found your podcast. I am in the USA. In my 70s. I always loved folk music. I always found the sound of Irish music to be so comforting, so down to earth. I was in Dublin a couple of years ago, and loved it. Ireland is one of the places I hope to be able to visit again. COVID-19 go away!!! A couple of years ago while taking my then 8 year old granddaughter to Hebrew school, I put on a local Irish music show in the car. She loved the music. Glad I was able to pass that on to her. She plays violin. Hopefully one day the fiddle." * (Gene) Brewer replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Yes, I did retrieve the free tracks and have installed them into my library, which continues to grow. Thank you very much. A few of my favorite bands/artists that I know names for are: Slainte (out of Seattle I believe but think they has broke up) Celtic Fiddle Festival (Kevin Burke is tremendous on the fiddle) Chieftains Altman There’s lots of artists I like but I don’t know or recall exactly their names. Right now I am living in a small SoCal desert town and there is no Celtic music scene here to my knowledge. this why I stream a lot of music. I’m retired so my entertainment funds are limited. so I look for the most for the least. Some people call it cheap, I call it frugal. However I’ll be getting the bumper sticker offer to help out the cause. My heritage is Irish (Ussery from County Cork), English, German and Cherokee Indian. My internet is flaky and sometimes real slow (DSL) like last night. Had trouble streaming the podcast. Looking into getting a better ISP."
