My Guest Spot on the “Drop The Needle” Podcast (Record Collecting as a Form of Recovery Self-Care)

This is probably my favorite podcast guest spot ever. I’ve greatly enjoyed every single podcast, recovery website, or recovery-related Facebook group on which I’ve been featured. However, this one was particularly fun, and tied in two of my greatest passions: recovery and records.

Drop The Needle Podcast – Shane Watson

In this episode, I share my personal recovery story (as I’ve done before), but what’s very unique is that I was able to get really in-depth regarding how my record collecting is a form of self-care that I practice in recovery. I had a blast talking with the guys, and I even got to feature three songs related to my story:

Mike Doughty – “No Peace, Los Angeles”

Dustin Kensrue – “Down There By The Train” (Tom Waits cover)

Sting – “The Lazarus Heart”

Thanks again to Paul, Sean, and Mike for having me on the show.
