The Godfather of Drugs: Ethan Nadelmann, Inside Marijuana Reform, The History of the Opioid Epidemic, Love and Ayahuasca
This is Angry Americans on drugs. Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) explores the roller coaster history of the drug reform movement and the rapidly-changing landscape of drug policy with the visionary leader Rolling Stone describes as “the driving force for the legalization of marijuana in America.”As the Presidential candidates and the national political landscape on drugs shift by the day, Ethan Nadelmann (@EthanNadelmann) has been called America’s real Drug Czar. He is the mastermind behind the biggest changes to drug policy in US history. A Harvard PhD and the son of a rabbi, Ethan founded the groundbreaking Drug Policy Alliance (‪@DrugPolicyOrg) in 1994 and was a lead architect behind 30 years of reform to include California’s historic Prop 47 referendum—which in 2014 reduced drug possession for personal use to a misdemeanor. This defining political victory proved to be the first domino to fall in a string of historic national legal changes and unleashed a wave of legalization of marijuana in 10 states across America—with inevitably more to come. Ethan has advised Presidents and Presidential candidates—and shares the fascinating inside story of building the early days of the drug reform movement, and of building powerful (and unlikely) political coalitions uniting conservative icon William F Buckley and liberal icon George Soros. With New Jersey, New York and others debating legalization right now, this conversation couldn’t be more timely. As with every episode of Angry Americans, it delivers the 4 I’s: integrity, information, impact and inspiration. Rieckhoff pushes, probes and challenges. He breaks down the latest on a potential war with Iran, the shocking resignation of Acting Secretary of Defense Shanahan and the historic NBA Finals ending. And Rieckhoff continues to be among those national leaders leading the charge with his fellow First Responders to pass the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund extension in Washington. It’s the latest episode of the groundbreaking political and social podcast that is sparking conversation nationwide and has been featured on CNN, MSNBC, the Associated Press and Variety.

Raised in Baghdad, Iraq, Zainab grew up as a small girl calling Saddam Hussein her uncle. Her father was Hussein’s private pilot and from an early age, Zainab was thrust into the small and twisted circle of the notorious dictator. She takes us inside that bizarre world and shares how she survived it, and escaped war, brutality and abuse to emerge as a true American imigration success story. She escaped an abusive arranged marriage with only $400 in her pocket and would go from working in a Hallmark store in Chicago to founding a global non-profit for women to receiving honors from the President of the United States at the White House. She now is a best-selling author and one of the most powerful Muslim-American voices in media and politics. It’s a harrowing, inspiring and thought-provoking conversation with another iconic, important and inspiring American that is shaping what our country is and what it will be in the future. The kind of interview that is defining Angry Americans.

Introducing Angry Americans, hosted by Paul Rieckhoff, coming April 4th
If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. The state of affairs in our country has made us all Angry Americans. But it’s righteous, justifiable, vigilant anger. An anger that drives positive change. The anger that started the American Revolution and drove the Civil Rights movement. In times of national distress, it’s our anger that can unite and inspire us all. Your host is Paul Rieckhoff. He’s a fighter, a patriot, and an independent political and media force to be reckoned with. After serving as a soldier in Iraq in 2004, Rieckhoff emerged as one of the most dynamic political and social leaders in America. In every episode, he breaks down the most important issues facing our country. And he interviews the most influential and compelling people. He’s taking on Republicans, Democrats—and everyone in between. If you’re in the angry middle, Angry Americans reminds you that you’re not alone. We’re all in this together. Join the Angry Americans movement starting April 4th. Produced by Righteous Media.
