Episode 42: In 2020, more than 45,000 people in the United States died from gun-related injuries, but the number of people who die each year from alcohol-related causes is more than twice that. Yet social media and cable news is not filled with debates about how to solve this problem.
Richard Kyte and Scott Rada talk about what can be done to address this problem that is underpinning much of the violence in America today.
