Carmody Central is a lifestyle podcast centered around real topics in culture, comedy, sexuality, and "the unknown." Each episode features one topic and guest, ranging from comedians, specialists, drag queens, and more. Jennifer Carmody hosts her namesake podcast without reserve, in a free form style allowing the topic to breathe and often go in unusual directions. It can best be described as eavesdropping on your neighbor's psychotic conversations.

Yoshi is back in the US and back on the podcast. He is sharing some of what he has been up to over the past few years.  He has been involved with www.illegalmagazine.org a magazine based in Europe that is written, produced, and photographed by addicts. The drug culture is changing across Europe and many places have adopted the idea of 'shooting rooms' which is where heroin addicts can get heroin and clean needles, and are able to use right there in the room.  Sounds crazy, but it has drastically reduced drug related crime, the spread of disease and actually lowered the number of fatal overdoses. Yoshi has a new perspective on addiction and drug use after visiting these shooting rooms around the world. He recently visited one in Vancouver and hopes the US can adopt some of these methods.
