Young man wearing graduation gown with graphic text reading Placer County presents One Pill Can Kill

At Placer County we have two different podcasts to choose from. The first, called "The Placer Life", was created to share gripping, touching, humorous or interesting stories of the amazing people and places of beautiful Placer County -- California’s best kept secret. 

The second, called "1 Pill Can Kill" was more recently created to take a deeper look at the epidemic of fake pills and its impacts on our community, what you can do to keep your family safe, and how Placer County health, law enforcement and education agencies are working to address it. Both podcasts are fantastic and shouldn't be missed!
