Boom.outta.here ,

The Podcast I listen too.

I met Pat back in 2004 with his now wife when he was living in his car 60 days into sobriety. We even lived together in Liberty House. Learning to Lose might be the most innovative thought provoking podcast I’ve ever listened because I lived an episode! Pat whoever contact me please I need to tell the opposite of what Troy stated about liberty house. I think it’s important to hear my story about liberty house! I have to know if I am nuts!!! 520-301-4485 because his story is not my story and I think people need to hear both sides and I’d like to debate.

Billy

I’m stoked to hear you Billy, even though I don’t know you personally. I’m equally excited to hear Pat call you his co-host because of what I perceive that you have to offer through what I’ve heard you say already. Welcome to the future where you can bless people you can’t see or know through information transfer. Haha. Looking forward to more. God bless you brothers
