Counter Tobacco Podcast

Counter Tobacco Podcast

Counter Tobacco is a pre-produced, interview and research-based podcast dedicated to the six million people that die from tobacco related causes each year. There are so many reasons why someone picks up their first cigarette and this podcast aims to highlight the role the tobacco industry's influence at the point of sale plays. Episodes will range from in-depth profiles of the demographics most affected by tobacco to stories rooted in the history of the industry's marketing tactics. The Counter Tobacco podcast is a project of the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Counter Tools. Our mission is to provide software and consulting services to catalyze place-based public health policies at the local and state level. Find out more at CounterTools.org... Show More

This episode is the first in what we hope will be a new series called, 'Authentic Voices', where we speak with individuals in communities across the US to hear how their lived experiences and interactions in the retail environment impacted their journey with tobacco.

In this episode, we speak with Shaun Pryor, a Chicago-native and Oklahoma-transplant who is an outspoken advocate against Big Tobacco and the manipulative tactics they use to lure youth and customers of all ages. We discuss his journey from smoking to quitting to advocacy and action, and touch on the industry's targeting of Black communities and the ways we can make lasting change in tobacco control. An extended video version will be available on Youtube later in July.
