RMA-Episode 93 Show Notes:

RMA-Episode 93: Book Review-Russell Brand’s Recovery. Love him or hate him, it’s hard to ignore him. Russell Brand is an English comedian and actor best known for his flamboyant, loquacious style and manner. He is also, at this writing, 18 years sober from drugs and alcohol. Russell’s outsized personality is on full display in his 2018 book Recovery, which purports to re-invent the 12 steps into a program that’s more relevant to the modern age. Was he successful, or is this just a case of putting old wine into a new bottle? Tune in to find out!
