Here’s an interview I did with the PBS NewsHour about the opiate epidemic — pills and heroin — that they did following the overdose death of the great actor, Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
Also on the show is Gil Kerlikowske, drug czar for the Obama Adminstration.
You can also listen to an interview on the same topic that I did with KPCC, the Los Angeles NPR affiliate, on its Take Two morning show, with host Alex Cohen.
Meanwhile, here are appreciations of the actor from the NY Times and from the LA Times. Here are photos from some of his best roles.
