Episode 56: Holding Space with Jocellyn Harvey
In this fantastic (I'm biased - sue me) episode of Buzzkill, I talk to the wonderful and vibrant Jocellyn Harvey. She is writer, recovery social media influencer and also the creator of the Recovering Your Home process of decluttering yours space through the lens of energy.
We talk about race and recovery, and the importance of finding others who look like you and understand you. And with that how we can be accepting of this and holding the space for those who are different than us.
AND if that wasn't enough, Jocellyn has been kind enough to give you, the Buzzkill listeners, ***50%*** code for her Recovering the Home 40 page guide.

Episode 55: Debunking Common Myths About Recovery
In this episode I talk about common misconceptions about addition recovery and why they are myths. I can't promise I don't get a bit riled up at some point, but there you go. I'm passionate about recovery, as are you. If you feel that you're getting a bum rap in terms of good, solid advice about recovery, then go no further. I got your back.

Episode 54: Running and Recovery
In this episode, I talk about why it is so many people in recovery are attracted to running and pushing themselves on the trails and roads. I talk a bit of brain chemistry, community and other reasons we feel compelled to lace them up. I also talk about the potential pitfalls of getting out there. If you're a runner, recovery or not, there is a lot to gleam from this episode!
Episode 53: Creativity with Sondra Primeaux
Sondra Primeaux knows creativity - seamstress, writer, podcaster, photographer, etc. and she also knows what it's like to tap into the spirit of creation without dipping into the spirit in the bottle.
On this episode of Buzzkill, we talk about the power creativity has in our lives and how to express it, even if you think you have ZERO creative bones in your body (spoiler: you have a TON of creativity within you).
Check out Sondra's work, including her podcast, The Unruffled Podcast, which she co-hosts with Tammi Salas, and where to find her on social media on her site: www.theunruffled.com
