Launched in early 2001, Cultural Baggage, hosted by Dean Becker, is the only nationally distributed radio program focused on discussing the war on drugs. 

The weekly, half-hour program features interviews with prominent experts, such as U.S. Representatives John Conyers (D-MI) and Ron Paul (R-TX); Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman; and Superior Court Judge James Gray. 

Cultural Baggage features timely and candid interviews with elected officials, judges, scientists, doctors,  authors, entertainers, police officers, wardens, prisoners, and patients about current drug war issues, such as medical marijuana, sentencing reform, racial profiling, and police corruption.
