This month’s guest on the SSA podcast is Dr James Morris from London South Bank University who hosts The Alcohol Problem podcast. James joins the podcast regulars Dr Rob Calder and Dr Carol-Ann Getty to talk about the latest news, research, policy and debates relating to addiction.

“Guidelines or statistics about risk do not resonate with people, but lived experience and stories about people’s lives absolutely do resonate. So we have to be aware of that when we’re thinking about how to change opinion or get people thinking about change or behaviour change.” – Dr James Morris

There is an interview with Dr Polly Radcliffe and Emma Smith about their research into services for pregnant women who use drugs (the full interview will be published later this month) and we talk to Dr Nathan Critchlow about the impact of Ireland’s recent alcohol policy changes.
