This Podcast Might Be Stronger The Crystal Meth Epidemic Plaguing 2 days ago   04:24

Everyone knows a guy like Drew Ackerman: the guy at parties who keeps talking about pointless topics until you manage to escape to the bathroom.

But unlike your local rambler, he’s been able to turn his knack for quirky into a career, by putting to people to sleep with an incredibly boring podcast called “Sleep With Me”.

His voice isn’t particularly pleasant or soothing — he himself calls it “creaky”, but for his fans, there’s something comforting about hearing Drew drone on about such non-crucial topics as grammar, underwear styles, and Trader Joes’ ability to keep shelves stocked during the holidays.

Sleep With Me is quickly approaching its 750th episode and racks up about 3 million downloads a month.

And now, for the true Sleep With Me Fanatic, Drew offers live podcast experience sleep sessions.

"I’m more like a buddy. Like, they call on the phone, you’re like, 'Hey, I cannot sleep.' Or I’m having the worst day. Just tell me some random stuff about your day, " Drew says.

VICE News dropped in on one of these live podcast events to find out what it’s like to fall asleep, live, in a pool of fellow insomniacs.

The Crystal Meth Epidemic Plaguing This Podcast Might Be Stronger 2 days ago   18:58

Fresno is experiencing a meth epidemic.

Located in California’s Central Valley, the city is a hub for many major highways and is surrounded by vast farmlands. And while now, most meth is smuggled from Mexico, the valley was once an ideal location for meth manufacturing labs in the 1990's.

Today, methamphetamine is the number one threat for the Central Valley Drug Task Force, and, because latinos make up half of Fresno's population, they are also being affecting by this epidemic.

VICE's Paola Ramos traveled to Fresno to explore the history, factors and the ongoing relationship between the Latino community and methamphetamine use.
