Matt Crawford speaks with author Rick Emerson about his book, Unmask Alice. In 1971, Go Ask Alice helped to set in motion and fortify our government and cultural perception of drugs and LSD in particular. The supposed diary of a middle-class white female this book was the jet fuel to the war on drugs machine. 5 million copies and 5 decades later it is still having an impact, and it wasn't the only "Diary." Emerson takes the deep dive and unravels this mystery taking us to places we could not imagine. A compelling read that takes its time but keeps you engaged throughout.
