Drugs: Think of the Children!
Wed 19 October 2016, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
Join us as we talk about drugs with the the teacher who went viral for battle-rapping his students, and the doctor who gave up drugs and has tried them on live TV. We may even get a special live performance...
- Mark Grist is now a spoken-word artist and known for his battle raps which have gone viral. Formerly an English teacher, Mark famously battled his students and is well placed to gauge how we should talk to our younger audiences.
- Dr Chris Van Tulleken has presented BAFTA winning medical programmes on Channel 4, BBC, CBBC, and is well known for series such as Trust Me I’m a Doctor, Operation Ouch, and most recently BBC One’s The Doctor Who Gave Up Drugs. With a mix of medical knowledge and having worked in children’s education, Dr Chris is also very well placed to give his insight.
Sex and drug education is a tricky thing to get right – we have to ask ourselves: Has drug education worked? How can we improve? Come along and talk about drugs with us - and let’s be honest!
Stop and Search is on the Scroobius Pip’s Distraction Pieces Podcast Network, brought to you by Acast, in association with LEAP UK. We’re once more thankful to Tottenham Court Road’s Waterstones in hosting us and providing a lovely, relaxed venue.
