Welcome to our new website!

Thank you!

I am someone who has not yet attended AA meetings - this may have been the gift I needed for inspiration to find my group. Host is smooth and easy to listen too.. thoughtful questions and great quality pod.

Love this podcast!

I don’t have Facebook, but I’m here listening since January and all caught up. Today I have 28 days sober. Thanks for being you. I’m in San Diego and every time you share a little about getting clean in SoCal, I feel more and more connected to exactly where I am. In gratitude, B

This helped me get to one year sober!

I love this podcast! I will often listen to it when I am at the gym in the morning. I just celebrated one year sober and this podcast bring me serenity when I am feeling restless, irritable, and discontent. I plug in and remember that the feelings I am having are normal and I am not unique. But there is a solution and that solution is to hear someone else's experience strength and hope. Thank you Mike and to all the speakers for helping me stay sober!

What An Awesome Find

Hi Michael - I stumbled upon your podcast by accident on Spotify while looking for "speak tapes"...what an awesome find. I have now listened to every eposode and going back through again. I have gotten a lot of good inspiration and information from your guests but have to say that I mostly relate to GP. I have now been sober for 14 months after 35 years of drinking. Keep up the good work!


These are amazing stories of recovery and so inspiring to hear. I am on episode 15 and can't stop. I laugh, smile, cry and get hope to go on with my recovery with minute that goes by on these podcast. Please keep them coming Michael and keep up the great work. You and your great are awesome. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Love you and see you soon.
