This is my favorite addiction podcast. I always find something new and useful in every episode! Great guests and an even better host who started each episode with a valuable tool!

Food Myths in America

Sugar isn’t addicting? Then why are so many addicted to alcohol? Do we need to moderate better? Or maybe we should eat a handful of almonds with that glass of wine. If I was the good doctor with a pre-diabetic condition, I would NOT be eating gummy bears. The BMI discussion was excellent. But I will not be buying her book anytime soon.

Great Guests

The center for motivation and change is a great place to learn about addiction treatment. Their materials are highly educational and effective. The podcasts has an abundant amount of proffesionals whom I'd pay to listen to. Dr. Josh King is passionate about the subject. My concern has to do with the first 15 minutes of each episode before the interview starts. Sometimes it feels Dr. King literraly struggles to find what to talk about. I found approx. half of the opening discussions to be unnecessary. A few were spot on.
