DOWN WITH DEDEE

DOWN WITH DEDEE

DOWN WITH DEDEE came from Dedee’s deep desire to help others who are still struggling with any form of addiction, and even she is excited and surprised how it bloomed into many conversations about other important topics that she feels most will enjoy listening to. Her mission is to help chip away at the social stigma surrounding those with the disease of addiction in the hopes they will find it easier to ask for help/support. She also is aware of the stigma that surrounds those with paranormal/supernatural experiences, so by including this topic in her podcast and having open minded conversations about all that surrounds it, she hopes it will help more people come forward with their experiences. Because of Dedee’s Social Welfare background, she decided early on to open up the conversation to others who may not be affected by addiction but other social welfare concerns they might have. She calls her episodes various conversations, not interviews, because she wants listeners to feel part of the conversation. This podcast is solution-based and positive to help listeners lighten their day(s). Before the episode ends, Dedee asks if they believe in the paranormal/supernatural and what animal they would like to be reincarnated as... These questions are essential to Dedee because she firmly believes that all things are connected and that there’s more to life than meets the eye.

When Shon told me that he had these amazing 2 girls (Anna & Brittany) to help out with his new rehab and that they were going to be a huge part of the support their clients are going to receive through this added element of love/support… I was like “YES!!!!! That’s how we do it! We are all in this together to help heal each other because we are all connected!” Anna & Brittany come to the (sober) party with their own stories...
