One of my favorite interviews ever. I was barely holding it together. When Maggie was editing it she texted me and said "9.5 minutes in and I'm already bawling." https://ricochet.com/podcast/walk-ins-welcome-bridget-phetasy/nikki-mark-has-learned-the-value-of-what-one-soul-can-do/
It was fun catching up with my old friend in comedy and sister in pregnancy, Jessica. Enjoy!
It was such a pleasure talking to Sally Satel about the opioid crisis, addiction, recovery, how it's a miracle anyone ever gets sober, the ramifications of political correctness in medicine and so much more. #WalkInsWelcome
Maybe we should just focus on TV show reviews.

Some of you have been asking if we have a list of our promo codes for all the Dumpster Fire & Walk-Ins Welcome sponsors. We made a list and you can find it here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11ErjcLnuDxjb4FibbeY3yh97UOUyfeqr5xz6zKV57mw/edit?usp=sharing
We'll do our best to keep it updated.
Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.
We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.
Something like 45000 people died from guns last year. 54% of that is suicide. So in reality 20,400 died from homicide/murder. That is not significant in the least. What is significant in contributing to the is (and causally proven) is the media reporting on outlier cases produces copycat violence. The reason the media reports every one of these insignificant events is because the overarching agenda to disarm Americans - which we will not allow. We need more guns in the hands of the public and no laws impeding it.
