Hi everyone! We're still at it:) Going storng on Zoom, we're bringing you this Ep we decided to release as a bonus Ep.

Dev, Chris and Sam delve deep into some of these "questions" asked by the people that helped them achieve recovery. We'll be releasing more episodes in the coming weeks! It's been an interesting journey through COVID-19 and you'll hopefully hear more from us very soon :) More importantly, we'd love to hear from you.

S3 E6: CoronaCast Part II w/ TSP Boys (and Guests)
This week is part II of the CoronaCast., we tuned into Zoom to bring you an episode where we discuss AA. We read an article published by Standford Medical titled "Alcoholics Anonymous most effective path to alcohol abstinence." We discuss and invite all our guests (Thanks for tuning boys and gals) for a talk on the effectiveness of AA. You can also reaad the article online by clicking here. Again, during these difficult times, finding a way to connect and maintain some sanity by way of online discussions and spreading a message of hope is key. Whether we're doing or other people doing it, it's a way to get away from the pictures of empty aisles, conspiracy theories, and which side of the government one tends to lean.... At TSP, the only thing we care about is to spread a message of hope. And love. Always love. We thank you all.

S3 E4: On Being A Woman....in Recovery (Lisa & Caitlin)
TSP Boys are very proud to welcome to the show 2 BEASTS in recovery! Lisa is a gentle, gracious, and very quiet (don't let that fool you) woman sitting across Caitlin who's a strong, self-propelled, hilarious, and direct gal! As dudes in recovery, we were looking forward for the feedback to a pretty strong and disturbing email we received on the show from a woman in recovery! And man did they bring it... It was a great time! We ask, they answer, they joke, we laugh...it was the TSP way of doin' it. Please enjoy and keep yourselves sane and happy during these delicate days!

S3 E3: Recovery in the Arts (TSP Boys)
TSP Bois discuss their favorite recovery based/ addiction movies (among others arts) in a round-table style! What movies, music, and podcast have you seen, listened to or heard that left a mark?

S3 E2: About Relapse (Kat)
The boys are back for another episode discussing relapse (among many other things) with the one and only, Kat Fox! There's nothing you cannot discuss with Kat, she's just one of those people in recovery who has learned to talk about it and put it on the table; there's nothing more poisonous than "keeping a secret." Relapse is a subject that keeps us in the dark. Many of us shy away from discussing the ugly and manipulative things we have to do when we're using and when we relapse after getting sober. We try and discuss the subject with honesty, keeping nothing back...enjoy!!

S3 E1: Welcome Back Episode (Casey)
The TSP Boys are back for another season, folks! We are pretty much picking up where we left off in this episode. Also, bare with us during the first few minutes of having the guest on; Skype was being a bit "squeaky", but that sounds disappears after a while. Enjoy...

S2 E7: Recovery in Prison (Doc)
For our Season 2 finale, we interviewed Doc; an individual with a powerful message of grace and recovery. We do not want to give too much away in the description because we believe he does a fantastic job of telling his own story. We also think that his story will blow our listeners away in the same way it blew us away while we interviewed him. What we will say is that Doc spent time in prison and was able to find recovery and a new way of life while incarcerated. Let us know what you think about Doc's story in an e-mail and we'll read it on-air. Lastly, thank you for listening and supporting our show for the past two seasons! We are excited about Season 3 and already have some exciting things in the works.

Take a listen and as always, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org and check us out on www.thesoberpod.comBig thanks to all those who participated in this recording: John, Chris, Jason, Mikey, and Frankie!

In this episode, TSP boys spend an evening with Billy discussing his recovery in both AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and ACOA or ACA (Adult Children of Alcoholics.)

S2 E3: What is Celebrate Recovery? (Jim)
In this episode, Jim joins the TSP bois and covers some basic knowledge about Celebrate Recovery, an organization we knew little about. He also digs deep in the difference between AA, NA and Celebrate Recovery which we found extremely fascinating! Jim works in the field of addiction, has gone through a pastorship and has started a Celebrate Recovery group when he first got sober in Chicopee, Massachusetts; really awesome stuff (Chickka Pakka, Chickka Pakka)... He certainly left some of us wanting to experience some of that!! We had a blast with our Mass brother, Jimbo. Thanks Jim and hope to get you back on the show sometime! Read more about CR at https://www.celebraterecovery.com/ and let us know if you end up checking it out! Again ya'll, thank you so much for listening and hope you continue to support us by leaving us reviews and sending us emails!

S2 E2: The Importance of Advocacy in the Opiate Epidemic (Ginny)
In this episode, we interview Ginny Atwood Lovitt; an important person in the recovery world! She is a key player in the advocacy arena, naloxone access (the opiate overdose reversal drug), and just an awesome and fun recovery ally. It was so informative, she left us wondering what else in this world of recovery we have yet to uncover! Ginny is the founder of The Chris Atwood Foundation: an organization that has the mission "to save lives from opioid overdose, support recovery from substance use disorder, and defeat the stigma of this treatable brain disease." Check them out at https://www.chrisatwoodfoundation.org! Simply put, Ginny is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to opioid addiction! We really enjoyed having her on the show! Lastly and most importantly, we dedicate this episode in Chris Atwood's honor. May you rest in peace, brother.
