The world has turned on its axis over the past 12 months and every human on planet Earth has been affected, somehow. But there are challenges that have been affecting society, way before a virus changed how we think. These issues have been tucked away, but it’s time for them to be voiced again. Are you ready? Are you ready to join me in a quiet corner of Little Venice, where I am having some deep conversations with some friends of mine- and these conversations are not going to be easy. Racism, youth crime, mental health...all those things we need to get out there and talk about, but we don’t know where to start. Join me for a series of debates on The Frost Report. They won’t be comfortable subjects but they will be spoken about.
8: The Frost Report - Episode 8 - Drug Addiction and Mental Health
56:02This Episode we talk openly with Daniella Westbrook, Daniella Westbrook, Paul Danan and Chalkie White who don't hold back on their experiences. An estimated 1 in 11 adults aged 16 to 59 years old had taken a drug in the last year (9.4%; approximately 3.2 million people and around one in five adults aged 16 to 24 years old had taken a drug in the last year (21%; approximately 1.3 million people). Drug use is prevalent in our society and causes irreparable damage to families, relationships, and can also result in death. Drug-related deaths in England and Wales have risen for the eighth year in a row and remain at their highest level in more than a quarter of a century, figures show. There were 4,561 deaths related to drug poisoning registered in England and Wales in 2020, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said. This is the highest number since records began in 1993, and up 3.8% from the previous year. On this podcast we have spoken openly and honestly with courage and bravery about the personal impact of drug use on their lives. I am hoping anyone listening to this podcast can learn and be reassured that you can survive drug use.

1:06:34Chuck D: Educator, Innovator, Philosopher and Speaker of Black Culture. It is with immense pride that the Frost Report have had the opportunity to converse on a range of subjects, with one of the founders of Public Enemy. Credited with seamlessly turning hip hop into a serious art form, whilst at the same time ensuring the genre appealed to more than just a black audience, the profound legacy of Chuck D and Public Enemy is ingrained for immortality in black musical history. A renowned activist of broad intelligence who has never been afraid to voice his opinion and encourage change. The Frost Report in conversation with Chuck D is not to be missed.

4: The Frost Report Episode 4 - Serious Youth Violence, Gangs and County Lines
1:06:59This week on the Frost Report, My guests Junior Smart, Kendra House and Sheldon Thomas will be delving deep into a subject that does not have enough publicity, funding or public concern thrown at it- because most people are unaware of the gravity of it. The exponential rise of using children to traffic drugs across the country, known as county lines activity, has led to approximately 30,000 children, being failed at every single level of society. Failed in education, failed by children’s services, failed by the legal system. Some of these kids have been failed until they are dead. We need to address this. We need to have yet another uncomfortable conversation, and change the future of all of our children.
