Fresh voice needed on these evolving topics
Ruby is a fresh voice who is able to explore openly and connect with each guest as she talks about topics we are all curious about. By being open and exploring this way she is creating a path towards self acceptance and healing. I love this podcast.
This podcast is AWESOME for anyone - whether you’re wanting to get sober or looking for insight about living a less boozey life. Ruby’s take on sobriety is unique and the conversations around our society’s obsession with all things alcohol and how to live more conscious without it are incredible. I love this pod!
Older episodes helped me in early sobriety
Older episodes of this podcast were hugely helpful for me in early sobriety. The Holly Whitaker interview was life-changing and set me on my path. I feel like in the past year, this podcast has become more about anti-racism and wokeness than sobriety, so I've tuned out. I turn to other podcasts (by people of color) to hear conversations on those subjects. It's kind of a bummer that this great sobriety podcast has become more about social justice than sobriety because it used to hold a really unique place in the sobriety space. It feels like a loss. Maybe it's time to retire Sober Curious if it has succumbed to mission creep, or maybe Ruby should start a new podcast on social justice topics so that this one can go back to being about sobriety and recovery. She's a great interviewer, and I can tell she's trying to use her platform for good. I just feel like I've lost a source of reliable support in recovery as the conversations have become more and more about current affairs than alcohol. I wanted to share this feedback to explain why I'm unsubscribing. Thank you, Ruby, for helping me so much in early sobriety. You truly lifted me up when I needed it most.
