#024: Many Seattle musicians from the 1980s punk rock scene fell into addiction and never made it out. Guitarist, user and dealer Tom Hansen survived. After over a decade of mainlining he ended up in the hospital and was near death, but he recovered, went back to school and became the well-respected writer of American Junkie: his brutally honest autobiography.

WARNING: This episode contains graphic drug use, gruesome hospital scenes and grim anecdotes about Seattle rock stars who are no longer with us.
