Episode 48 - Common Peril Quarantine Part IX - Nick Moses
Our guest for the quarantine series this week is Evan's hometown friend, Nick Moses. We were thinking there might be an audience for a speaker that isn't necessarily an alcoholic or addict, but chose to get off mind-altering substances in order to better their life. Nick calls his sobriety his super power and it's nice to hear his take on what sobriety can do for someone even when it's not a life or death scenario, like it is for a lot of us. We hope you enjoy and hope all of you are healthy and happy.
