From The Archives
Let’s Talk About Drugs is a look back through the KUT archives at some of the conversation that has swirled around drugs since the late ‘60s.
You’ll hear archival audio from the legendary gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson, Dr. Theodore X. Barber, the noted psychologist, and Dr. Joel Fort, author of The Pleasure Seekers and a leading figure on the drug debate in the early ‘70s. NPR’s John Burnett, who has been reporting on “The War on Drugs” for the last 20 years, is just one of the experts who will put these archival recordings in context. KUT’s Rebecca McInroy produced and host Let’s Talk About Drugs.
Listening Back, Fifty Years of KUT was originally produced for KUT’s program The Best of Public Radio and aired in September of 2009. It is a look back at just a few of the great moments that have helped make KUT one of the country’s leading public radio stations.

From the UT Forum series there are classic moments from Ruth Bader Ginsburg, baby doctor and peace activist Benjamin Spock, and beat poet Alan Ginsberg and will put these clips in historic perspective. KUT’s Mike Lee and Rebecca McInroy produced and hosted Listening Back, Fifty Years of KUT.
