Trudi R. ,

Thank you

I have been listening to this podcast for 2 years! I love to listen to Dr. Mike! Love how you intertwine your sense of humor in something that is so serious. I’m grateful to have been sober for over three and 1/2 years. I listen to this podcast everyday… while driving, while doing chores around the house and while walking etc.. I also attend three meetings a week (one is a big book study), have a sponsor and I’ve worked all twelve steps, sponsor women and have commitments at my meetings. Thank you for your service Dr. Mike!

The best Bigbook study out there

This is one of the best if not thee best Big book study group I’ve heard yet. I’ve been going to AA meetings for 35 years and the information and insight discussed by this Dr. and alcoholic has given me such a helpful understanding of the steps and insight about the spiritual condition and how to apply it in our daily lives. What a true gift and purpose this man has in helping the alcoholic through the big book. God bless you.
