AfterPartyPod: Dr. Drew

AfterPartyPod: Dr. Drew


dr drewThis one was a long-time coming. Dr, Drew Pinsky, the board certified internist/addiction medicine specialist and one of the kindest men I’ve had the pleasure of knowing, graces the podcast this week. The co-host of Loveline since its 1984 inception, Pinsky currently hosts Dr. Drew On Call on HLN; previous gigs include hosting Lifechangers on the CW and, of course, producing and hosting Celebrity Rehab and its off-shoot shows. He’s appeared on roughly a million other shows, including Dawson’s Creek and Big Brother, written bestselling books and even had asteroids named after him (yep; Google it). But far more important than his massive array of accomplishments is what he’s done for the recovery movement—a role that has earned him more than his share of controversy. In this episode, he and I talk about how a bullshit meter is crucial when working with addicts, the anxiety he used to suffer from and the queen of GHB (nope, it wasn’t me), among many other topics.

    First, you need to think about the size any sofa you’re considering.

    Another solution is usually to get some packaging tape and place strips of the
    tape all across the sections from the sofa with pet hair. Sofa
    beds provide both seating and a bed and so they are made to transform in one to another
    using the minimum of fuss.

    These are a few the of all important considerations for once you go to obtain a sleeper sofa mattress.
    This sofa bed is available in different shapes,
    sizes, colors, styles, and prices which will surely match
    the flavour of everyone.
