Announcing the Launch of The Benzo Free Podcast

Updated: Mar 23, 2023


New Podcast Explores Anti-Anxiety Drugs, Sleeping Pills, and the Struggle of Withdrawal

The Benzo Free Podcast is here and launches on Thursday, Feb. 21. Hosted by author D E Foster, this weekly podcast explores the background and dangers of benzodiazepines and Z-drugs while providing first-hand insight into the reality of withdrawal.

ERIE, COLORADO, February 21, 2019 – Benzos are some of the most popular drugs ever created. They are also some of the most addictive. Known best by their brand names, such as Ambien, Ativan, Klonopin, Valium, and Xanax, these drugs are taken by millions of people every day, and yet few know much about them, let alone what it’s like to withdraw. Our goal is to help change that.

Welcome to The Benzo Free Podcast. This new podcast is a weekly discussion about benzodiazepines, nonbenzodiazepines, those who take them, and how to survive dependence and withdrawal. Your host, D E Foster, was prescribed clonazepam (Klonopin) for over 12 years and is now four years benzo-free. In the podcast, D blends first-hand experience, personal stories, interviews, and a variety of facts and studies from his five years of research on the topic.

Podcast episodes will be available on the Benzo Free Website and on podcast providers such as Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play, Stitcher, TuneIn, and others.

ABOUT THE HOST – D E Foster is a former writing instructor at the University of Colorado and the Colorado Film School and author of the book, “Benzo Free: The World of Anti-Anxiety Drugs and the Reality of Withdrawal.”
