About the Podcast
This podcast was inspired by my own journey, and evolution through life, and wanting to share my story as well as stories from regular every day people.
I'm a single dad, Union blue collar guy, former drug addict, spent time in Federal and State prison for drug trafficking and fraud. I was released in 2006 with nothing but the clothes on my back, and a bag of mail, and legal paperwork.
In 2010 I finally kicked a long time methamphetamine habit, and started the long climb back up the ladder of life. I'm happy to say that I have managed to navigate myself into a position where I feel confident in sharing my struggles and successes, in the hopes of helping others.
In May of 2019 I published my first episode and in February of 2021 I published my 100th episode with 40+ waiting to be released. Since starting this journey the show has evolved into a topical variety show with guests from a wide range of backgrounds.
I am dedicated to bringing guests on that can speak about interesting topics mixed in with comeback stories. I will always be a voice for those that have been wrongfully convicted and drug offenders that have been over sentenced for nonviolent behavior.
