The Local Lens

The Local Lens is a podcast from the Powell County Health Department where we dive into our community’s experience with the drug epidemic. Everyone in the community has a different vantage point of what the drug issue looks like, shaped by their personal lives and professional roles. In this show, we are showcasing as many of those perspectives as we can through honest and informative conversations. By broadcasting the conversations here, we hope to reduce stigma and begin to find solutions. These are our people, using our voices, telling our stories, because no one sees it like we do.
