The same kind of corruption that has people reluctant to throw the book at crooked bankers is now showing up in the pharmaceutical industry. Richard Eskow, host of The Zero Hour, talks about the role Big Pharma played in creating an opioid addiction and how they’re being let off the hook for thousands of deaths.

Richard Eskow is host and managing editor of The Zero Hour, a weekly radio program produced by We Act Radio. He was the senior writer and editor for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. Richard has written for a number of print and online publications, was a founding contributor to the Huffington Post, and is a longtime activist.
