I started listening recently. Having lost a son to the opioid epidemic, each time I listen and I get information or observations that are tremendously useful.

Angela Kennecke’s interviews are pertinent, relevant, & helpful

Mist people, even when not addicted themselves, know someone who is. Often it is a family member, relative, or friend. Angela’s own understanding of the horrible effects from addiction, not only on the addict but on the entire family, community & country resound deeply as she she openly shares her loss of her own 21 year old daughter, who died from an overdose of fentanyl. Angela’s interviews with former addicts and other parents who have
lost children who overdosed helps listeners become educated about a major problem in the United States: addiction. Angela also interviews doctors, including psychiatrists, who understand & now help those with who currently suffer from addictions. Listening to Angela’s podcasts is time well spent.
