We're in the middle of one of the deadliest drug epidemics in history, with nearly 50,000 people dying from opioid overdoses in the United States in 2017. On this season of our podcast The Uncertain Hour, we look at how these kinds of crises end. Today, we'll play you a bit from the first episode, all about an Oval Office address from George H.W. Bush that turbocharged the war on drugs. Plus, the latest home sales numbers and the struggle to fight extremism online.
