Always worth a listen

Haven’t listened to an episode that didn’t force me to consider a shift in perspective. The interviews are solid gold. So thankful for this community and for Robbie and Sam being brave enough to be part of the shift in making exploring sobriety normal conversation.

Keeping it real

Impactful voice for anyone who wants to learn and understand more about substance use disorder, mental health challenges and recovery. Real talk, realistic viewpoints, making this conversation more comfortable for all. Robbie and Patrick are great to work with too!
