Subscribe to The Hash Podcast — New Season January 8th!

December 20, 2018

This New Year, start your Tuesday mornings off right, with just a little dab of The Hash podcast.

On January 8th, 2019, Leafly is thrilled to launch a brand-new season of the weekly, scripted, cannabis news + lifestyle podcast “The Hash”—delivering potent, super-professional interviews and stories with some of the hottest names in the canna-universe. “The Hash” takes you to cannabis’ budding edge in American life, with the high production values you expect from shows like “Radiolab” and “Fresh Air.” The new season’s guests include Cypress Hill’s B-Real, Rupaul’s Drag Race star Laganja Estranja, and Mimicking Birds’ Adam Trachsel.

Listen to our trailer.

What Is The Hash Podcast?

Available on iTunes, Stitcher, and Soundcloud, “The Hash” is hosted by Leafly California Editor David Downs, and Brooklyn-based journalist Max Savage Levenson. “The Hash” distills the essence of cannabis in American culture down to quick, slick, ten-minute audio hits. The Hash was founded in 2014 in San Francisco, and has published 102 episodes. Past interviews include pop culture icons like Parliament’s George Clinton, Science Guy Bill Nye, Beats Antique, and Super Troopers director Jay Chandrasekhar; industry pros like the Dank Duchess, the Arcview Group’s Troy Dayton and Steep Hill Labs’ Dr. Reggie Gaudino; and activists like Debby Goldsberry and Pennsylvania State Senator Mike “Marijuana Mike” Folmer. The new season comes from Leafly Podcasts.
