A podcast that celebrates ALL the ways we recover in life. Lets explore addiction, gender, sexuality, and trauma. Episodes are a mixture of interviews, storytelling, and an exploration of recovery communities.
Young Hearts, Rum Free ft. Millie Gooch
When Millie Gooch got sober, there were very few options and none of them held space for her experience, so she carved her own path and started Sober Girl Society. In this episode we talk about the different ways to identify with recovery and the long lineage of empowerment based recovery books written by women dating back to the 70's including Millie's new book "Sober Girl Society Handbook. " If you love getting book recommends and hearing peoples recovery journeys, this episode is for you.
Navigating Trauma, Hunny ft. Jimanekia
Trauma effects people in different ways. Many people who learn to navigate their trauma do so in an unconventional way. Join Jimanekia, the Trauma Queen, and Valentine as they unpack some of their traumas and talk about their healing journeys. There are many forms of trauma but even more ways to heal.
Reclaiming Our Queerness ft. Goddexx
As humans we are born with both masculine and feminine energies, but from a young age we are taught to separate ourselves from one or the other. Join Goddexx and Valentine as they share about their genderqueer and nonbinary identities and navigating sobriety.
When Does "Recovery" Start? ft. Rachel @shotstoshakes
Do you count your recovery date the same day as your sobriety date? Join Rachel from ShotstoShakes and Valentine as they ask themselves the question "When did recovery actually begin?" and does recovery always mean Sobriety?
Welcome to the Disco
What does Recovery mean? What experiences require recovery? And what does this have to do with DISCO? Join Valentine for a quick peek into what inspired them to start this podcast and what exactly Recovery Disco is.
The episode you did with Rachel (September 30) was much needed during a time where I have started to re-examine my own journey. Thank you so much for being so inclusive of people who choose “non-traditional” forms of recovery. There was compassion, accountability, and openness to different experiences that I think are not seen often enough in recovery spaces. Love y’all, and thank you for holding my hand for 45 minutes as I thought about the last 8 years of my life and how I’ve gained so much through the ups and downs.
Just binged the first few episodes! I love Valentine’s open, curious mind, and that the episodes feel like a fun, vulnerable, and comfortable conversation you sit in on between friends.
So much wisdom here
This podcast is fun, wise, silly, and deep all at the same time. I highly recommend if for anyone exploring the world of recovery.
