Episode 349 – Serious About Social Equity

A maturing marijuana plant grows and reaches up to the upper right corner of frame. The green buds are a lighter yellow and shade of green than the darker leaves and there is a blurry background of other plants seen behind.

Kieran Ringgenberg, Amber Senter, and first-timer Emily Paxhia join host Ben Larson to talk about how various marijuana social equity programs are working, the general lack of investment for Black entrepreneurs, and what is being done (and not done) by celebrities and political leaders to change things for the better. Produced by Shea Gunther.

Episode 341 – Marijuana’s Big Moment

The U.S. Capitol Building is seen in the middle of the frame- small- with the Washington Monument rising up above it and setting the proper scale. The Lincoln Memorial building is seen in front of the base of the Monument and shows the compression in-frame created by the use of a long camera lens. The overall tone of the photo is rather muted, but the Capitol building is brightly lit up with a partially-cloud golden sky behind it. The image feels like there is hope in the darkness.




Anne Donohoe and first-time-guest Tauhid Chappell join host Ben Larson to talk about the latest developments at the federal level for progressive cannabis policy reform, the expanding need for proper social equity programs, and the ever-marching normalization of cannabis in contemporary media. Produced by Shea Gunther.
