Top 5 Sobriety Podcasts to Try in 2022
There are very real benefits to listening to podcasts – these 5 can help you stay sober in the new year.
The Addicted Mind
The Addicted Mind podcast, hosted by Duane Osterlind, features an impressive roster of knowledgeable, friendly guests from all walks of life.
Duane became addicted as a teenager but worked hard to find a purpose that helped him overcome his addiction. From psychologists, authors, and recovering addicts, Duane’s hosts give fresh perspective and insight, helping you to discover and laser-focus your own purpose.
That Sober Guy
Shane Ramer is That Sober Guy. Since 2014 Shane has curated nearly 400 episodes of open conversation that removes the stigma from addiction and helps people get better.
No matter the addiction, Shane has discussed it with diverse guests – from veterans fighting PTSD to major leaguers with World Series Championships under their belt. Addiction is not a moral failing and can happen to anyone – when it comes time to address the problem and rebuild, That Sober Guy is a great listen.
Seasons of Sobriety
Host Howard helps listeners through what he calls “seasons” of the sobriety journey.
While sometimes it’s tempting to focus on surviving just the next day, month, or year, Howard draws your attention to long-term goals. Five, ten, twenty years down the road, where do you see yourself? What unexpected challenges might you encounter? Let Seasons of Sobriety teach you.
Recovery (Sort Of)
Hosts Billy and Jason of the Recovery (Sort Of) podcast created something unique. Both recovering addicts themselves, they found different paths to recovery and continued sobriety – like 12 step programs – and discuss the real, nitty-gritty about fighting for recovery.
They deep-dive into the day-to-day reality of addiction healing. The Recovery (Sort Of) guys know that sobriety is not a smooth road, and that personal mental health is a huge factor in your success story.
They tackle tough topics in a candid, easy-to-understand way:
- Setbacks during concerts, events, or holidays
- Hazards of staying in a toxic community or relationship
- Identifying personal motivations to stay clean
- Acknowledging the importance of male mental health
From Sobriety to Recovery
Jesse Mogle created the From Sobriety to Recovery podcast to remind recovering addicts that sobriety and recovery are two different things. Jesse, a one-time addict turned life coach, argues that complete and full recovery is “the act of diving inward and discovering what events, thoughts, and feelings led to the actions that resulted in the addictive behavior.”
With this belief, he created a podcast committed to helping people dig deep and gain a greater understanding of themselves.
