Michael Thorn and Walkley Award winner Di Martin launch Drink Tank’s foray into the world of Podcasts

FARE’s Chief Executive Michael Thorn says Australia’s alcohol industry is using Big Tobacco’s shady and deceptive tactics to stop much needed alcohol reform in the Northern Territory.

Mr Thorn says alcohol industry submissions to the Territory’s Alcohol review deliberately try to mislead the inquiry.

In Drink Tank’s first podcast, Michael speaks to former ABC RN presenter, and guest contributor with FARE, Di Martin. He begins by describing the extent of the Territory’s alcohol problem, and FARE’s simple solution to minimizing harm.
