    on today's episode, we journey back to my hometown of milford, connecticut to visit some of the people and places that made me who i am and acted as the backstory for "the fifth vital", plus we check in with my eccentric yet incredibly based granny, taste-test a local burger shop, and get the opportunity to change the life of a fellow person in recovery.

    so you work the night shift? so do we. we can get thru this together. a random collection of news, stories, weather, and other random unplanned happenings. and tons of buttery toast.

    This hits home for me so much, I was a homeless heroin addict for about 8 years in Arizona. I'm over 3 years sober now and counting. It's very refreshing to see this kind of content and to be reminded that I am one of so many people who have lived that life! Thank you for giving back and ultimately proving that though it's incredibly hard, you can get off of that road and completely start over. It's a long and slow process but it's pretty amazing to see what were made of through it. Pretty cool stuff,

      Lana is cool and all. And let me make clear don't know the fine details of the relationship. But you break up for one second and she comes back prego, that would be hard to take in my opinion. Mike prollyt cares for her but the trust is probably ehhh so maybe why it's hard to just take her back not to mention he's said he's not ready to be married n all that

    Mike can act like a douche sometimes, but the fact that he talks about addiction so often and spreads awareness is really remarkable. What he did for that lady is going to change her whole perspective because all it takes is 1 person to believe in you/care about you and that can be the difference in what keeps you sober. You should do more episodes like this!
