[Thump] We Spoke to an Academic Who's Spent 25 Years Researching Drugs in Clubs
"I'm 24/7 obsessed with drugs, that's all I talk about"
For over two decades, Professor Fiona Measham has been researching what we get up to in nightclubs. Measham got her first job in a nightclub when she was fifteen and by the sounds of it she's spent much of her time in them since. As part of her research she's interviewed numerous clubbers over the years, fondly recalling several summers spent in Vauxhall's gay clubs for one of her projects. Although her family are surprisingly less interested in the many stories she has to tell of her club experiences – which you'd think would liven up the dinner table conversation. "I drive my family mad. I'm 24/7 obsessed with drugs, that's all I talk about," she admits.
