Podcast 288: Following up with a Ukrainian narcologist

Spend 15 minutes with Dr. Natalia Shevchuk, whom we interviewed by candlelight last month. She is sheltering in the Odessa region now, having left the Donetsk area.

This time, she relates how she lost a colleague in Russia’s attack on the Kramatorsk railway station and found another she’d feared lost in Mariupol. She told us that she’s impressed by her patients’ willingness to fight, despite their opioid dependence.

The narrative can be confusing at times, and following closely will require having a map of Ukraine handy. A technical glitch or two complicated things, but you’ll get the main idea: Ukraine needs help.
