ASP 003: Why I’m Upset, The Anonymous People, And The Empowerment Ride 2016

posted in: Podcast Episodes | 1



This week I share why I’m so upset and really more of why I’m doing The Addiction Support Podcast. I naively thought that by doing this podcast, I’d be starting a conversation. A conversation about how addiction needs to be treated like a disease and not like a crime or a moral issue.

Turns out I’m not starting that conversation, I’m just chiming in. 

That part is great! There are other people out there who believe it’s time for a change.

The upsetting part is that this conversation has been going on since the 60’s & 70’s and was shut down by the “just say no” politics of the 80’s and the 3 strikes law of the 90’s.

Watch The Anonymous People! It’s on Netflix (as of today) and you can find it online.

I also share about my meeting with Dave Cooke of and his upcoming Empowerment Ride 2016. He’s going to ride from LA to NYC while sharing his message!
