Shortcut: Where is Australia getting its crystal meth?

This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed. 

Australia tops almost every other country when it comes to our consumption of meth, with billions of dollars of it arriving at our shores each year.

Investigative journalist Conor Woodman joins us on this episode to detail exactly where all of this methamphetamine is coming from, the destructive path it takes to get into Australia, and the steps we can take for harm minimisation. 

Conor Woodman’s book “Meth Road” is available now, and can be purchased here.
