The Bubble Hour is hosted by Jean M., a sober woman dedicated to breaking down the walls of stigma and denial surrounding the disease of alcoholism.

Alcoholism effects more than 50% of American adults, either directly or indirectly, and yet it still remains a "taboo" topic and is still mostly misunderstood by the majority of people (even those effected by alcoholism and their loved ones).

The Bubble Hour seeks to inform, educate and help people identify with the stories they hear, the conversations and interviews with people who are just like they are, and let people know they aren't alone. Nobody can take the first tentative steps towards sobriety without first getting past denial, but even once they are past denial the stigma surrounding alcoholism is so strong that people are reluctant to seek help.

The Bubble Hour would like to change that stigma. Jean and the vibrant community of sober people who join her here, will be recording and offering this show for anyone to listen to for information, community, empathy and understanding.

We are so grateful for the sober people who came before us to help find this path; this is one way to give back.

Please help us spread the word about this website and the pod casts; you may be helping someone you know well but don't even know they have a problem.

Alcoholism thrives in the dark. Together, we bring light. And hope.

Love it, wish audio was better

This Podcast has been instrumental in my decision to start paying attention to my alcohol abuse and over-use. I always thought alcohol overuse fell into the AA category of joblessness, homelessness, and DUI’s, or you had no problem at all. Jean brings on guests from all spectrums, many of whom are stressed out moms who polish off wine every night like I did. thinking it’s all part of normal ‘mommy wine culture’ until it becomes a clear addiction. I love that she says very little and allows people to just speak their story.

I do wish the quality was a bit better, it’s hard to hear at max volume in my car.

Inspirational and Authentic

Jean McCarthy’s voice has become a lifeline in my path to recovery. I’ve been listening daily and was led to this podcast through her blog UnPickled. This podcast in turn led me to resources, tools, books and other women who have gotten sober who give me hope. Thank you Jean and to the women before her, who have created a new movement of resources for women searching for help.

Jean is amazing!

She is such a wonderful interviewer. She is a good listener, intelligent, compassionate, open minded and kind. She is so inspiring for how I would like to grow in recovery. A woman of dignity and grace. ❤️
