Support our podcast campaign

Our podcast is one way we can get truthful information about drug out into the world. Each episode has been downloaded a whopping 3,500 times, plus about 11,000 streams!

In total, the Drug Science Podcast has been downloaded over 500,000 times!  One episode stands up above the rest, as our most popular episode of all time – DMT with Chris Timmermann and Chloe Sakal.

Now on over 80 episodes, we’re immensely proud of everything we’ve achieved and all the inspiring guests we’ve had over the past four years. But we’re not about to stop there. With your help, we can keep creating new episodes and share them far and wide to help more people understand the truth about drugs. We really cannot do it without you.

“If you had told me back when we started the Drug Science podcast that less that four years later we would have 79 podcast episodes under our belt, I might not have believed you – yet here we are! I want to thank you for supporting our podcast. And do make sure you keep telling others about it too! It’s an important way of getting the truth about drugs out there."

Currently spanning 39 entries, our drug information pages are expansive and cover some of the most widely used drugs in modern society. However, there are many more substances that we want to highlight. We want to expand these pages to become a trusted encyclopaedia for honest, science-based drug information - with new entries and videos to bring the content to life.

Help support us to make more episodes of the Drug Science Podcast. Professor David Nutt has been recording the show over the past 3 years with some of the world's leading experts in drug science, policy and law. We want to continue producing the show that you love and in 2023, we will be hosting live podcast events open to Community Members and supporters.

This academic year, we will surpass an incredible 20 events, from in-person book launches and university lectures to our annual Student Psychedelic Conference and free Street Drugs Discussions webinar series. In the year ahead, we will continue bringing the Drug Science mission to different parts of the UK, with all events free to attend for our community members.

We have 21 educational modules, all completely free to download and we’re not stopping there. We want to create more resources, aimed at helping healthcare professionals, students and young adults to learn the facts when it comes to drugs. It’s time we gave drug education a makeover! By supporting Drug Science you are helping to disseminate free, evidence-based information.

With university societies from all around the world, the Drug Science Student Society Network is bigger than ever. But we’re only just getting started. Our ambition is to engage more closely during Freshers Weeks and throughout the year, supporting students and their respective societies with resources and information about drug science and how they can help us beat the stigma about drugs with science!

Professor David Nutt has published over 35 books in his long career and it doesn't seem like he will be slowing down any time soon. Drug Science is committed to supporting the dissemination of these books, as well as adding to the list with new releases, plus launch events to celebrate with our community! We have published books on drug policy, cannabis, psychedelics and much more.

Which is your favourite podcast episode? We asked some of the Drug Science team and network to get the inside scoop on some of their favourite moments over the past four years of the Drug Science podcast.

Crack Cocaine with Prof Carl Hart

“Carl Hart is a pioneer in bringing to the foreground the socio-political elements of neuropsychopharmacology. He has boldly come out of the closet for personal drug use and brings to the foreground the intersection of drugs, science and race. Carl demonstrates the boldness and courage needed to be part of the evidence-based drug science ethos.”

Underground Therapy with Dr Friederike Meckel Fischer

“It is so important to remember that the burgeoning field of psychedelic science stands on the shoulders of giants, some of whom have surrendered their reputation and freedom to continue the work which we now see blossoming globally. Friede is one of these giants. Both her work and life story are truly inspiring- we have so much to learn from her experience and wisdom, some of which is shared in this wonderful podcast episode.”

Why People Don’t Like Science? with Robin Ince

“One of the standout qualities of this podcast episode is Robin Ince’s insightful commentary. With his signature wit and intellect, Robin analyses the multifaceted reasons that contribute to the public’s aversion towards science. He highlights the inherent human biases, cognitive dissonance, and the impact of misinformation, painting a comprehensive picture of the challenges faced by scientific communicators. Robin’s expertise and engaging storytelling captivate the audience, encouraging them to think critically about the underlying reasons for scepticism towards scientific findings.”
