So relatable

Such an amazing podcast for folks in recovery (or not!!) that know the struggle of trudging and the hilariousness that comes along with such a self centred illness. I know the peeps that do this podcast irl and let me tell u they’re literal comedians🤣

Surprised

Though it would appear most involved with this podcast are AA members it is surprisingly free of the AA dogma and rhetoric one often hears at meetings. I was genuinely surprised by the sincere, often irreverent spirit of the hosts. And the guests are remarkably forthright, sharing details of their stories not typically heard in AA talks. I wish meetings were more like this.
