Growing compassion

Stumbled upon this podcast after discovering that a dear coworker was an addict. This podcast was comforting to me and helped me to try and understand addiction and how someone could choose their vice over their job, family, etc... I really appreciate the honesty from the hosts and guests and can’t help but feel compassion for those who have overcome great obstacles in their lives. Much love.

Raw, awesome, helpful

The hosts, and guests are so open and thoughtful. Dr Matt does such a great job of getting all the essential information and Casey brings just enough humor to keep it light enough to enjoy. Both Casey and Dr. Matt have hearts of gold with endless compassion.
