Episode Info:

Researchers at the University of Illinois have developed the world's first 3D molecular printer. Able to build complex molecules by attaching together atoms, it is only a matter of time before we all have the ability to print our own drugs from home. Yet technology in widespread use today may already provide the same benefits.

We speak with investigative journalist, Mike Power, about drugs and the dark web, and how cryptocurrencies and anonymous online marketplaces have revolutionized drug markets. For better or worse, anything you want to consume is at your fingertips, almost like you own your own molecular printer.

Mike Power is the author of Drugs Unlimited. He is a freelance journalist living with his wife and son in London.
