Episode two - Michael Burke

I thought the podcast was very good. Michael Burke certainly has a very interesting story to tell. The fact that he is in recovery for two addictions, and has dedicated his life to helping others, is very inspiring. He has taken the worst times in his life and turned them into good. Thank you Mr. Burke!
