    EP41.1: Amanda’s Story - Bonus After Thoughts

    Luke and Kyle discuss rejection and how we are moulded so heavily as children. Amanda was so desperate to feel acceptance and a love that she never had, that she would literally do anything to feel loved in any way she could.

    EP41: Amanda’s Story - From Parental Rejection To Prison

    As a child, Amanda was abandoned and rejected by her parents, and she quickly came off the rails. Drink turned to drugs, and soon Amanda was facing lengthy Jail time for a botched home robbery. Now free once again and with her life completely turned around, Amanda talks openly about how the lack of parental love as a child left her trying to find happiness in all the wrong places. Simply incredible.

    EP40: Paula / Jess' Story - Tourettes And Murder

    This is like 2 x episodes in one,. The first half documents the onset of Paula's Tourette's Syndrome,  and what it's like to live for years with varying ticks including squealing and opera singing!! It's fascinating. The second act takes a somber turn as we discuss the loss of Paula's siblings, including the recent murder of her brother. You will cry, laugh and helpfully learn  a thing or two along the way. Paula tells an amazing story and this episode will stay with you for years to come!

    EP39.1 Gary's Story - BONUS After Thoughts

    Addiction can often be covering up a bigger emotional or traumatic issue. Drink, drugs, eating disorders, gambling and other forms of addiction are all encompassing and overpowering and it take a monumental effort to overcome and recover from what is often years of addictive behavior. Luke and Kyle reflect on Garys amazing story.  If you didn't listen to Gary's story, go back and do so first!

    EP39: Gary's Story - Losing Everything To Gambling

    EP39: Gary's Story - Losing Everything To Gambling

    TW: Gambling and Suicidal Thoughts.
    Addiction comes in many forms, and in Gary's case, it was Gambling that was to bring him to his knees. What started as a fun distraction became an all encompassing nightmare for Gary, and everyone around him. If he wasn't gambling, he was obsessing about it, and thinking of ways he could get his next fix. As the money vanished, he would start stealing to cover his tracks. Gary estimates a total loss of $2m!!! But it was the emotional toll on him, his family, and his friends that really hit the hardest. As usual, we focus on the recovery, and we thank Gary for an amazingly vulnerable, honest, and inspiring episode.
