I’m Meghan Murphy, possibly the most cancelled woman in Canada. I have been angering feminists and the left alike for well over a decade now, despite having spent most of my life as a socialist and feminist.

I no longer identify as such, which I discuss often and (I hope) honestly right here on my Substack. My move towards independent thought and open conversation has been a huge gift to me and my worldview, and though many of those I left behind now call me a sellout, I in fact lost much in my move away from devout “ist” to simply me.

I left Canada in January 2021, fleeing Trudeau’s ever encroaching Covid mandates and measures, as well as what I saw as a clear move to erase, destroy, silence, censor, or even criminalize dissent in my home country.

My home base is now a small, chaotic, unpredicatible, magical town in Mexico, full of lizards, dogs, and weirdos. I return to North America whenever I can to fight, but for now, anyway, prefer living in small community with people who value freedom and autonomy (as well as fun).

I support free speech, free thought, open debate, and admitting when one is wrong. My aim is to encourage truth and integrity, and embolden the masses to speak out.

Why subscribe?

I have been working as and independent writer and podcaster since about 2011. I built my platform from the ground up, collecting an audience and subscribers organically along the way. I never had a plan beyond saying what I thought needed to be said and seeking a better understanding of the world around me. Staying independent is incredibly important to me, though it is endlessly challenging on the survival level.

If you do happen to enjoy or appreciate my work and are invested in the fight for truth, freedom, and sovereignty, please consider becoming a subscriber.

I am so grateful to have you here at The Same Drugs. For the many of you who have asked, the name is both an homage to Chance’s track of a similar name (read the lyrics to better understand that) and a reference to a move I felt I was making in my own personal life but also that I felt many of us were making towards the heterodox — a mass waking up with a desire for truth and authenticity 🧡

(And yes, that shirt up there is for sale.)
