Recovery Coast to Coast

Jan 25, 2023

Acclaimed and beloved national poet Jack McCarthy shares his 40-year journey in recovery. Sadly, Jack passed away 10 years ago this month. He actually went into recovery 50 years before his passing but had "a one-night stand" after his first 10 years. He talks openly about that relapse and how it contributed to his long-term recovery.

His book, "Drunks, and Other Poems of Recovery" is available at independent bookstores, as well as at Amazon.

And the video tribute to Jack, produced by Neil, is here:

This edition of the podcast also includes some thoughts on self-worth from actress Ali McGraw.
