The message is hope, the promise is freedom

This is my all time favorite podcast. My dream is to one day be able to be on the show. It’s an amazing testament to uncut, raw, real recovery. I can’t say enough how much these episodes have helped and inspired me in my own recovery. I love hearing other women’s stories and look forward to hearing more but I love all the guests. I recommend this podcast to everyone in my recovery network. Bryan A. is one of my heroes. Thank you so much for what you’re putting out into the world.
