During the first hour of the program, we are be joined by documentary filmmaker, director and producer, Kevin Booth. Fans of Bill Hicks know Kevin as his long-time friend and producer, having worked together on several comedy albums and films. Kevin has also produced comedy specials for contemporary acts that have taken up the mantle of Hicks, including Joe Rogan and Doug Stanhope. Kevin has turned his attention to what he describes as “the governments failed attempt at controlling which substances people can legally consume,” directing and producing three films on the subject to date: American Drug War: The Last White Hope, How Weed Won the West, and the recently released, American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny. We discuss his films, the drug war, Bill Hicks, and so much more.
