In this episode, I'm speaking with Katie Strang, a senior enterprise and investigative writer for The Athletic.

She dug into a story about recreational drug use in the NHL, with a special focus on players use of cocaine and ecstasy. It is a topic that has been discussed in private among those in the game, where some describe it as the secret that everybody knows.

Katie brings us into the issue with careful, meticulous reporting. And now, she tells us how she was able to shed light on a subject that is often only discussed in the shadows.
