On the next Fresh Air, Terry Gross talks with journalist Patrick Raddon Keefe, author of the new book Empire of Pain: The Secret History of the Sackler Dynasty. It’s an investigation into the Sackler family and its sometimes deceptive practices. The Sacklers own Purdue Pharma, the company that manufactures and sells oxycontin, which helped create the opioid epidemic. Join us.
