An unbiased non judgmental drug podcast

This is an amazing show. Hearing people talk about their relationship with substance use and it’s objective effect on their life is a positive thing we need to do as a species. This podcast will benefit users and non users with some perspective on the nature of the human experience that is substance use. I hope it keeps going, and when I get some spare scratch I’m donating. Don’t forget to know yr source and keep listening.

Thank You! Ironically Addictive to listen to...

I am savoring the last few episodes. I came across this podcast a few weeks ago. I love the story format the back and forth between guests and Phil

The stories are intriguing, real & relatable, like a verbal memoir of all the juicy tidbits of life’s trials and tribulations. These stories have forced me to look at my own drug use, its history and origins; how I might catalog my own experiences and stories and Also how I will move into the future with a new perspective.

Thank you for interviewing honest and insightful individuals and for producing such a Real and Engaging poscast.

Looking forward to more stories!!
