Scene Podcast: Inside the Biggest Heroin Bust in Northeast Ohio History


In this week's episode, host Craig Lyndall talks with Scene writer Doug Brown, who penned a fabulous feature story about how authorities orchestrated the biggest heroin bust in Northeast Ohio history, resulting in 92 people facing indictments.

Do give it a read and listen below.
