I talk to one of my oldest friends about our time growing up together, and our divergent paths since.  Mike takes me through his substance use disorder, and gives perhaps the most raw interview I have conducted. Mike is now one year and sixteen days sober. Since recording this episode back in April, he has been diagnosed with epilepsy and hit with a tremendous number of medical bills, while also not being able to work. If you are so inclined to do so, please visit this fundraiser in his name. Also, VOTE. Support the show (http://patreon.com/lightersidepodcast)

I talk to Dr. Maggie Perry about my particular form of OCD, known as Pure O. In honor of Mental Health Awareness Day, please vote Donald Trump out of office, so that we may all get some of our mental health back. Support the show (http://patreon.com/lightersidepodcast)
