After Mance released his recent episode with Dr. Mark Thornton of the Mises Institute detailing the Opioid Crisis in America, he was contacted by former professional BMX rider, and opioid user, Jason Perz.

Not only has Jason overcome his addiction, but he has taken on the task of researching the history of the opium trade in America. His research includes the names of many people and Institutions that anyone who has taken a high school history class will be familiar with.
