Why The Recovery Show – Episode 172

img_1195Why is there The Recovery Show?

September 30 is International Podcast Day, which “is dedicated to promoting Podcasting worldwide through education and public engagement.” … Well, that got me thinking about why I do this podcast, why I (with others) have created 172 episodes of The Recovery Show over the past 3 ½ years. So, here are some of those reasons.

  • I can do it.
    • Technical knowledge
    • Teaching background
  • Step 12 encourages me to “carry this message to others”.
  • How did it happen?
    • My sponsor asked me to participate in his podcast (AA focused recovery at recoveredcast.com)
    • I wanted to bring a little more Al-Anon content to his podcast and he said “why don’t you start your own?”
    • 2 friends agreed to help
  • It deepens my own program of recovery.
  • I have met (at least virtually) people from all over the US and the world.
  • You let me know that it is valuable to you.
  • You support me.
    • Financially
    • Through your sharing (email and voice mail)
    • By giving me topic ideas and music suggestions.
    • By participating in the show.

This is a “we” program. I cannot do my recovery alone and I cannot do this podcast alone. Even though it is often me, sitting in front of a microphone by myself, you are there with me, sitting across the desk from me, as I talk. And, I think, that is the bottom line of why I continue to produce this podcast. It brings us together in recovery; it connects me to you, and you, and you.
