    AIFA Conversation with Gigi Langer, PhD

    AIFA Conversation with Gigi Langer, PhD

    Today I speak with Gigi Langer PhD. She is the author of '50 Ways to Worry Less Now'. A great talk about coming from the depths of alcoholism and finding a better life through writing and helping other. She is someone full of wisdom and insight and this book collects much of it in both a helpful and informative way.
    Thanks for listening.

    AIFA Conversation with Taurmini Fentress

    AIFA Conversation with Taurmini Fentress

    Today I speak with my old friend Taurmini Fentress. A licensed independent clinical social worker with a MPA, she is a wealth of knowledge on the affects of drugs and alcohol especially in those experiencing houselessness. We discuss abstinence vs. harm reduction and how both can be implemented in different capacities depending on the person. Honestly, it is truly about meeting the person where they are. It is at the core of her work helping people. And should be the approach we use more. Thanks for listening.

    AIFA Conversation with Jules Posner

    Today's guest is comedian Jules Posner. We discuss how he went from Godless to finding a spiritual center in sobriety after marijuana acted as his gateway drug to alcoholism and coming to find the importance of community and service in his program. Thanks for listening.

    AIFA Conversation with Ian Gray

    AIFA Conversation with Ian Gray

    Today I catch up with my old friend Ian Gray. 13 years sober brings with it a lot of wisdom and experience. Ian is no exception. We talked about the gift of desperation but also that we need not compare miseries to find a way forward into recovery. Thanks for listening.

    AIFA Conversation with Kelly Hogaboom

    AIFA Conversation with Kelly Hogaboom

    Kelly Hogaboom is a designer, mother and fellow 12 stepper with a lot of good sobriety. One thing that stuck out to me from our talk was that even though the things we do while in active alcoholism echo out, sometimes years after we get sober, we can still make amends and create a better life for ourselves and our loved ones. Thanks for listening.
