WUNCPolitics Podcast: Josh Stein Takes On JUUL, Opioid Manufacturers, And Hate

WUNCPolitics Podcast
WUNC

Josh Stein became the 50th attorney general of North Carolina in January 2017. The Wake County Democrat has taken a more proactive role than his predecessor, both sparring and collaborating, with the Republican led legislature.

On this episode, he discusses a recent decision to sue e-cigarette maker JUUL for its marketing practices toward children, and what more could be done to try to curb the opioid epidemic. Stein recorded this interview at our studios in the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh.  

Jeff Tiberii first started posing questions to strangers after dinner at La Cantina Italiana, in Massachusetts, when he was two-years-old. Jeff grew up in Wayland, Ma., an avid fan of the Boston Celtics, and took summer vacations to Acadia National Park (ME) with his family. He graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and moved to North Carolina in 2006. His experience with NPR member stations WAER (Syracuse), WFDD (Winston-Salem) and now WUNC, dates back 15 years.
