Welcome to another episode of that Southern SJW podcast your mother warned you about, The Podunk Polymath Podcast! This week on the pre-ramble, I talk about the failure of Republicans in the House to come up with the votes to repeal Obamacare, thus effectively rendering that effort dead, and my unmitigated joy at seeing the fuckwits in the GOP losing the battle. I also read a new review I got from guest and friend Zach Law of the Zachrilege Cast. It was a positive and flattering review and thankfully mentioned nothing about IPAs.
On the palaver this week I speak to my friend Erik Pelham about his fascinating, harrowing, and near deadly journey through addiction. Erik tried just about every drug in the book, as well as alcohol, and he tells how he finally decided to go clean after being beaten and in a padded cell. It is an inspirational tale, and Erik is a great storyteller. I think y’all will be hanging on every word as I was.
