The Board of Directors at THR4Life decided to reach out to Aaron Biebert to chat with him about the 2nd anniversary of the North American premiere of his film, “A Billion Lives” in Milwaukee, Wisconsin – on what is THR4Life‘s podcast debut.
Aaron and I talk about the inception, grass-roots research, and his perceptions while preparing for the film. He allows us an intimate perspective of both the challenges he faced while making the film, where the inspiration came from, and what it took to put this award-winning documentary together.
Aaron also gives us a look at other projects he and the crew of Attention Era Media have been working on since 2016. Always on the go, he talks about projects with Derek Yach of The Foundation for a Smoke-Free World and the Film Festival during the most recent Global Forum on Nicotine and more.

You MUST get louder.
There are millions of people who have chosen to switch to e-cigarettes. If you’re reading this, you are the minority of those who are involved.
The time for rolling over and accepting the regulations, restrictions, taxes, and bans they come up with is unacceptable.
From my friends at Vapers.org.uk
While tobacco and other nicotine products were still legal, legalizing nicotine for e-cigarettes in New Zealand is now underway.
We’re demanding professionals answer questions – making snowflakes melt…and they’re not used to that.
…and also instinctively want to seize control of and legislate for anything new. But it is some in the medical profession for whom I have the greatest contempt. They’ve had careers telling people to ‘quit or die’ and now cannot quite comprehend this level of harm reduction.
It is time for those in power to change the laws, to see they’ve been lied to (and still are) by ANTZ (Anti-Nicotine & Tobacco Zealots) long enough. It is time to stop rewarding the lies and accept that smokers are switching in droves for a reason.
NNA has come a very long way in two short years and we have thoroughly earned our reputation as a “go to” organisation on tobacco harm reduction. Now we need your help to achieve even more. We have never asked for money before but we need to now.
The United States is a world leader in innovation. But when it comes to ensuring smokers have the maximum possible access to new devices and products that will help them quit and save their lives the U.S. is found tragically wanting.
