Episode notes

The Stooshie remains in summer recess but we have another special episode for you, this time looking at Scotland's drug deaths crisis. As new annual figures are released, we are reminded that the people behind the numbers are far more than a statistic; they are our friends, neighbours and family.

Is it time for a more compassionate approach? Our special guests share their views.
