I Have 12 Questions Podcast - Conversations About the Sober Life

I Have 12 Questions Podcast - Conversations About the Sober Life

A podcast about Trudging the Road to Happy Freaking Destiny! Interviews and random soliloquies where we laugh, cry, complain, explore, and learn. All are welcome, No exceptions. Including those who are not in recovery but perhaps know or love someone with addiction issues or just want to learn more. Along with experts and practitioners who help people work through addictions and behaviors they want to change. These conversations will span limitless topics and though will be through the lens of sobriety, are still universally human. Love, loss. grief, excitement, parenting, outside issues, purpose, God stuff, etc. In the words of the great Ted Lasso (by way of Walt Whitman), ”I want to be curious, not judgmental.” So, we’ll be talking to people who have found sobriety, recovery, perspective shifts regardless of their path. Radical acceptance and inclusivity of ourselves and everyone else. Happy trudging!

Hey sober family and our entire listener community!  I am so excited for this conversation.  Do you ever just ask the Universe for something, and it says “yes” without even challenging you to a duel or anything?  Well that’s how this played out.  I’ve been pushing myself to open my mind and my heart to what my spiritual life looks like beyond recovery.  One of the ways I’ve done that is watching a series called “The Chosen” which i...
