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.

The Bubble Hour is helping me change my life!

It is giving me the motivation to escape the desire for alcohol by giving me an improved perspective of the negative impact of alcohol. I previously thought it was helping me relax and helping me sleep. I now realize that it was just causing me problems. I really appreciate this helpful podcast.

Jean McCarthy was instrumental in saving my life

No kidding. listening to Jean McCarthy over the years and we didn’t have blog has been my road to recovery and health. I have tried other things; and without her I don’t know that I ever would’ve gotten started toward alcohol-free living! I began listening to Jean McCarthy’s interviews on the Bubble Hour approximately two years ago. She would reply when I emailed her. When I met her in person at a “She Recovers” retreat, it was B
beyond description how articulate, kind, wise and sincere she is. I cannot wait to read the new book she is going to have published this year! I also enjoy her blog, “Unpickled”.
