Before I start talking about this amazing podcast I need to tell you about my blog situation. Apparently my employer has decided to block all blogs on our network. THAT means that I can no longer post or comment on any blogs on my lunch hour (cough). I can read via Feedreader but I can’t get to the actual blog.
This blows more than you know.
So I’m posting when I can either after I get home at night or on my phone…which suck…and blows…and bites. Stick with me though, I’m hoping this isn’t permanent.
Now back to our regularly scheduled post.
Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts. It’s great to listen to them on the bus on the way home. I’ve listened to everything from Downton Abbey recaps to Serial (love) to weight loss podcasts. Then our very own Paul, formerly of Message In A Bottle put a podcast out there that sprung from his relationships on Twitter where he tweets as @buzzkillpod.
By the way, I just can’t figure the Twittersphere out. I’ll keep trying but be patient. I’m old. What can I say?
Anyway, as I’ve mentioned before Paul has a fabulous podcast called Buzzkill that I listen to faithfully. From that, I’ve found another amazing podcast done by another Twitter group Recovery Revolution (@KLENandSOBR) called Since Right Now. I have fallen in love with these three guys.
It’s basically three guys, Chris, Jeff and Matt who just…talk. It’s like an AA meeting with cross-talk (which is awesome). They talk about anything and everything in the moment and it’s fucking amazing. It’s fresh and honest and raw and much needed in our sober community in my opinion (which doesn’t mean shit but I had to put it out there). They have awesome guests (Sacha Scoblic anyone?) that they interview in an informal ‘let’s talk’ kind of way rather than a scripted kind of way.
So now I’m hooked and I’m listening off the bus as well. I’m downloading episode after episode. Eventually I’ll get my fill but for now I’m on my honeymoon with these three guys so don’t judge. Let me live my life.
Seriously though, if you’re new to sobriety and want to hear some real and honest conversation about getting sober and staying that way give it a listen. And if you’ve been sober for a while and you just want to check in and get a “me too” then you should give them a listen as well.
One of their recent guests said she felt like she’d been chatting with rock stars. I couldn’t agree more. Rock on gentlemen, you do good work. And thanks for the gift Paul.
