So sober, so real, so spiritual and so much fun!

It is worth being sober just to be able to listen to this podcast and participate (in your heart). Thank you, Holly and Laura! This podcast is like your best friend, late on a Saturday night. You understand each other perfectly, there is no condescension or know-it-all attitude and you can talk about anything. All you need is some delicious food to go with it and you are...HOME :)

After listening to every episode, I cannot recommend this podcast

At the end of a long journey with this podcast, I've unsubscribed. I've long had several small quibbles: poor production quality, bad sound, and a lack of editing make this podcast far too long and at times difficult to enjoy. Please invest in some Yeti Blue microphones! And trim the ums and repetitions and pauses! The small quibbles pale in comparison to the big issues, though. While I have absolutely no doubt that Laura and Holly are well intentioned, they are fundamentally quite dysfunctional people who, after a handful of months in sobriety, decided to declare themselves experts in the field. This is a dangerous paradigm, one that I could perhaps forgive if they consistently displayed wise decision-making, humility, and growth. The example they set for recovery, however, is an ignorant and self-indulgent one, to say the least. I'll start with the arrogance. Holly is the more vocal culprit here, but the fact that Laura leads retreats all over the country after barely two years sober speaks to a similar arrogance. Holly, by way of example, will read three books about a subject, say neuroscience, and says things out loud like "I know more than almost anyone about this now." In the few instances where they have a true, educated expert on the show, their ignorance is highlighted in staggering relief. My final straw for the unsubscribe was something I found just extremely careless. In a recent episode, one of the hosts vented for several moments about how sad and wallowy she felt, and the other encouraged this as part of the journey of recovery. I'm not here to invalidate anyone's feelings, but sometimes it's as if they forget that people look to them for advice. No wise man or woman ever said "it's ok to wallow in self pity." My final fundamental issue is the wonky "spirituality." For the love of your notion of God, take a course in theology before you pretend to know anything. Example: the hosts seem to be completely ignorant to the fact that theologians absolutely ridicule "A Course in Miracles." It is a philosophically deeply flawed text, full of contradictions and serious issues. It's about as intellectually rigorous as L. Ron Hubbard's Dianetics. Again, the know-it-all confidence in tandem with staggering historical and academic lacunae is just so irresponsible that I can no longer support their efforts. 

Like eves dropping on a really good conversation

I find something I need in every single episode and I'm SO SO grateful to have this in these early days. Thank you, Holly and Laura!
