RMA-Episode 107 Show Notes:
RMA-Episode 107: To Live and Die in LA-This week Mike and Nat review the recovery memoirs The Los Angeles Diaries and This River by author James Brown. Plagued by the suicides of both his siblings, and heir to alcohol and drug abuse, divorce, and economic ruin, James Brown lived a life clouded by addiction, broken promises, and despair. In the first two books of his recovery trilogy, he reveals his struggle for survival, mining his past to present the inspiring story of his redemption.
Also, Mike talks about his trip to Savannah, and Nat explains what he does when his wife goes out of town. But wait, THERE’S MORE! Bigfoot returns to the Week in Weird and RITN looks at toilet paper eating and how the opioid settlement may have the effect of making ADHD and anxiety drugs harder to get. (Those things are not related).
