BB's Bungalow 64: Hempy Holidays to everyone!
Happy Holidays to everyone out there on the Dopefiend.co.uk podcast network!!
On this month's show, Tirikite Toker catches up with Jim Moylan, National Campaign Director of the HEMP Party on the back balcony of the Nimbin Hemp Embassy on the 8th of December 2012. Jim tells us about the latest rumblings in the failed War Against Drugs and how recent legislation changes in the U.S. may be accellerating the turning point in other parts of the world such as Australia.
We'll then be joined by Matt Riley, President of the Victorian branch of the HEMP Party, recorded on 13th of October 2012 as an introduction at Dr John Jiggens' book launch in Melbourne. If you missed it, check out the last episode (#63) to hear more from Dr John Jiggens and the books he has authored about the history of hemp and cannabis in Australia.
I'll also bring you audio of Virgin Founder Richard Branson and Drug Policy Alliance Executive Director Ethan Nadelmann who are interviewed on BBC TV about the failed drug war and the new documentary Breaking the Taboo.
BB's Bungalow comes out on the last Thursday of every month. I love hearing from you and it's been very quiet recently so please write in and tell us what you're up to, or of some recent kit or bud you've enjoyed and of course we love to receive your favourite music, comedy and trip reports!
