DePaul sociologist Greg Scott talks drug addiction, harm reduction...and Little League

Previous Next

When DePaul sociologist and filmmaker (the National Geographic Channel's Drugs, Inc. series) Greg Scott comes on The Interview Show, it's safe to say that no one — probably himself included — knows what he'll say. But it's always a great mix of the educational, the insightful and the downright hilarious. Here, he talks with passion about his "embedded" work, on film and off, with and on behalf of addicts and sex workers, mostly on Chicago's West Side. He shares a story of being knocked unconscious with a cinder block, talks community among addicts and then, for the hell of it, weighs in on safety in Little League baseball.

(Note: Use headphones at work; some language)

(The next Interview Show is Friday, March 23 at The Hideout! Guests include actor Brian Dennehy, Chicago soul singer Syl Johnson and Chicago Reader political reporter Mick Dumke. 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.)
