This week on Dopey! At long last, we are joined by the prolific documentary film maker and brilliant memoirist, Erin Lee Carr. She walks us through her life as a child of two serious addicts and her experience as a fantastic alcoholic in her own right. We talk about her father, renowned author and NY Times journalist, David Carr and the hard lessons he taught Erin. We discuss her new smash Netflix Documentary Britney vs. Spears, and the balance between workaholism and ambition  and the importance of having a crack sober support network to pace her recovery. PLUS a nitrous fueled voicemail, King Baby and much more on this fresh episode of Dopey. Get it while it’s hot!
