Trace Material Podcast: Season 1

Looking Back at Hemp

This week we’re taking a look back at all we’ve learned over the last 12 episodes. We’ve traced the story of hemp from its colonial roots in America, through the war on drugs, and legalization. The future of the plant is wide open. And we hope, as we all build it together, the past can be reckoned with instead of being pushed aside in favor of profit.

This will be our last episode of Season 1. We’re proud to announce that we’ve been awarded funding by the National Endowment for the Humanities to produce a second season of Trace Material. That means we will be back (after a short pause while we dig into research) with a new season tracing a new material!

Until then, we invite you to go back and listen to some of the episodes you might have missed over the last 6 months.

Please make sure you’re subscribed on your platform of choice to be alerted as soon as we’re back!
