    Hi Lovelies. My computer has died. Like died died. What this means is that Season One has come to an end while I find a way to aquire a new computer. This may take some time. Thank you so much for supporting this project and listening in! I will be back soon! I have at least 30 more interviews already recorded that I am so excited to share with you, but for the time being I'll be directing my energy to the blog and the website RecoveryDisco.com, and recording episodes, I just am not able to edit and publish new episodes until either my computer gets fixed or I get a new one. Thanks for all your support, my Disco Queens!!

" If you love getting book recommends and hearing peoples recovery journeys, this episode is for you.

Will you be my best friend?! 💁‍♀️

I heard you on the Sobriety Diaries podcast. I bought the book The Biology of Desire. You have helped me so much already- I too can not get sober in AA although I know it works for so many. My journey is also just about personal growth. Thank you for leading the way! Xoxox

WHOA…

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.
