In this episode of the Podcast, Garrett shares his journey of growing up in a small town in Iowa, enjoying a seemingly normal childhood, and later struggling with alcohol. Reflecting on his high school years, college days, and the progressive impact of alcohol on his life, Garrett talks about his experiences with social drinking, blackouts, and brushes with the law. He recounts the turning point moments that led to his decision to quit drinking, including his involvement in an outpatient program, the birth of his twin boys, and the emotional toll his drinking took on his family and himself. This is Garrett’s story on the Sober Motivation podcast.

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
