RMA-Episode 89 Show Notes:

 

RMA-Episode 89: Everything happens for a reason. Or does it? This week on RMA, Mike and Nat discuss this old bromide, how it pertains to recovery, and whether or not believing that there is a master plan for your life helps or hurts you stay sober. It’s a far ranging discussion that touches on religion, philosophy, quantum mechanics and Schrodinger’s cat, with a little Repo Man thrown in for good measure.

 

We also have a Monkster’s Speak, a new listener asks for some advice, and a rundown of summer vacations past and future. It’s two hours of RMA, coming straight into your earholes.

Are Creative People More Prone to Addiction? Does Getting High Help or Hurt Creativity?

Are Creative People More Prone to Addiction? Does Getting High Help or Hurt Creativity?

July 20, 2022

RMA-Episode 88 Show Notes:

 

RMA-Episode 88: This week on RMA we explore the alleged link between substance abuse and creativity. Contrary to popular belief, creativity does not disappear when the alcohol and drugs are no longer available. Your genetic makeup remains the same, so the drive to take risks creatively is still there. Are creative people more prone to addiction? What are some strategies you can use to remain creative after the drugs wear off?

 

We also have a Monkster’s Speak, a new review, and a lot of discussion about what we’ve been up to lately. It’s a lot of RMA. Can you handle it?

RMA-Episode 87 Show Notes:

 

RMA-Episode 86: This week on RMA, Mike interviews Jesse Jarnow. Jesse is a writer, a DJ and the host of the Good Ole Grateful Deadcast, the official podcast of the Grateful Dead. He is also the author of Heads: A Biography of Psychedelic America. In order to understand the present popularity of psychedelics as a treatment modality for trauma and substance abuse, it’s important to understand the history of these substances and their place in the American psyche. Mike and Jesse discuss that history, as well as the history of psychedelic therapy, the Grateful Dead, and how psychedelics are inexorably woven into the fabric of modern society.  

 

We also play a listener voicemail, read a listener email, and share what we’ve been up to. It’s two and a half hours of RMA, coming straight to your earholes.

Today, We Review ”Drinkers Like me” by Adrian Chiles & Moderation Management

June 16, 2022

RMA-Episode 86 Show Notes:

 

A triumphant return! Season 2 of RMA kicks off with a review of the BBC documentary film Drinkers Like Me. Mike and Nat talk about the perils and pitfalls of moderation and non-abstinent recovery. Is such a thing even possible? Is it advisable? Does preaching the possibility of moderate drinking to the masses harm people who should be sticking the plug firmly in the jug? Tune in to find out.

 

We also have an extended life-update, a scientific Recovery in the News, and an alien- pentacostal Week in Weird. There’s a couple of reviews, and some Monksters Speaking. It’s an exciting hour and forty minutes of podcasting, hand-made just for you. 

 

Finally, a big thank you to the fans who have stuck with us through the hiatus. Good things to come!

June 5, 2022

RMA-Episode 85 Show Notes:

 

And, We’re Almost Back! This morning we started a zoom call to catch up, Mike hit the record button, and we both realized how much we missed doing the show. What we planned as a quick discussion turned into an hour of material so we decided to release it as a stand-alone episode. Highlights include Nat visiting a “CBD” dispensary and recording the walk-through with Mike on the phone, some riffing on future show ideas and the planning process, and a talk about psychedelic therapy and harm-reduction. 

 

We also read a nice review, but you’ll have to wait until we’re back in the studio to get a new dose of RITN and WIW. In the interim, I hope this off the cuff discussion helps fill the void left by the RMA hiatus.

 

We apologize for Nat’s audio and hope it isn’t too distracting, but this was a spur of the moment thing so we hope you’ll bear with us.

”Your Best Thinking Got You Here!” And Other Questionable Things Said To Us In Early Recovery

”Your Best Thinking Got You Here!” And Other Questionable Things Said To Us In Early Recovery

May 6, 2022

RMA-Episode 84 Show Notes:

 

Your best thinking got you here. It’s a common enough slogan in AA and other 12 Step programs, but what does it mean? Einstein said that you cannot solve a problem with the same thinking that caused it. Does that mean we shouldn’t question the methods and philosophical underpinnings or recovery programs? Or is there perhaps a place for self-empowerment and self- reliance in recovery.  Mike and Nat debate the implications of checking your brain at the door and whether it’s a necessary predicate to achieving lasting recovery.

 

Also, Monkster’s Speak, the Week in Weird, Recovery in the News and the life-update, on a self-empowered, SMART, checked from the neck up episode of RMA.

The Great Debate: Recover or Recovered? Is It Possible? Does It Matter? Find Out!

April 22, 2022

RMA-Episode 82 Show Notes:

 

And we’re back! Sort of. Mike is still wrestling with COVID but the show must go on and so it does, in all of its audio-challenged glory. This week, spring is in the air and weed is everywhere. We continue our discussion about cannabis and kombucha, psychedelics and shamans, and where any of that fits into a recovery program. For the main event we ask the perennial question that vexes 12-step meetings across the land, “Are we recovered, or recovering?” You don’t want to miss this one!

 

Also, a double (and topical), Monkster’s Speak, a nice review and a long life update on a budding, on the mend but still testing positive episode, of RMA.

Setting Healthy Boundaries in Recovery - ¡GetSmart! with Erin & The Big 3 with SLP

Setting Healthy Boundaries in Recovery - ¡GetSmart! with Erin & The Big 3 with SLP

April 1, 2022

RMA-Episode 80 Show Notes:

 

This week on a very special episode of RMA, Mike and Nat welcome Erin back to the podcast to talk about boundaries and codependency.  Boundaries are the rules you create to let people know how to treat you. Healthy boundaries create separation between people. In codependency, these boundaries are weak. You feel responsible for how other people feel and want to make them feel better. Mike and Nat, two people-pleasers that don’t like to say no, try to understand the how and why of setting healthy boundaries. Can Erin help them figure it out?

 

Plus, Grant stops by for The Big Three with SLP, Mike shares some lessons learned from a sober business trip, and the Monksters Speak about why it’s so hard to tell people you don’t drink anymore. Also, a new review, a listener email, RITN and The Week in Weird on a calm, assertive and respectful episode of Recovery in the Middle Ages.
