British author Johann Hari joined Amy in the studio to talk about his book, Chasing the Scream, The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs. They discuss drug addiction, what it is, why it happens, and what the new solutions have been in other countries and what they might be in Australia. Philosopher Anne Manne came in to talk about mothers and the quest for social justice. Anne argues for a 'universal caregiver' regime as opposed to the current 'universal breadwinner' regime that expects productive citizens to be in full-time paid work and devalues unpaid caring work. Anne's chapter is in the new multi-author book, Dangerous Ideas About Mothers. And Ben Eltham on the latest in federal politics.
