Dopey is Dope!

Caught wind on Dave and Chris’s work through This American Life. I have been hooked since day one. It was great from the passing of Chris moving forward and also from the very beginning to the loss. I highly recommend listening from the start. From my standpoint (a person who is afflicted with addiction), this show keeps me going. My past is so dark and I know I am not alone. A lot of what I make it through was funny and I’m glad Dave, Chris and the Dopey Nation agree. These stories are who we were and telling them reminds us that we don’t want that chaos anymore.

I especially love Dave’s dad and his role in this podcast. Now that I am older, I watch others that are younger than me suffer (friends and family) and I know this pain too, which Alan reminds us is so very real. The suffering of an addict is heart wrenching. Alan’s love is genuine and endless, which is needed in every addicts life. Judgement and excessive favors are no good in any relationship, lines must be drawn... however, love must always be present. I feel that love from Alan!

You guys are great! Dave, my heart is bleeding for you. The struggle, the loss, and the darkness. I’m here with you, brother. We all are. Please, please keep doing what you do! I patiently wait the drop of the podcast each week. It’s always thrilling and never a let down (even when Chris thinks it’s the worst).

Stay strong!

I want to love this podcast

I really want to love this podcast because this kind of stuff is right up my alley but one of you ruins each episode. You are constantly cutting off the other guy and it’s really irritating and hard to follow the stories. With all of the interruptions you’re causing it to be almost chaotic and it’s super frustrating.
