This week on Dopey. Dopey Nation Legend and old time friend and contributor to the show, Brian 'HottWheels' Connolly tragically dies. It all happened the same day we hit 10 million downloads and the day before we acknowledge the five year anniversary of Chris's horrific death. If that wasn't enough we also were featured in SPIN magazine the same day. Is it odd or is it Todd?
We are also joined by brilliant New York Times best seller, Anna Lembke is an American psychiatrist who is Chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic at Stanford University. Her book Dopamine Nation has been flying off the shelves and is an incredibly accesable look at addiction and recovery. PLUS emails, voicemails and the return of my dad!

More About Dopey:
Dopey Podcast is the world’s greatest podcast on drugs, addiction and dumb shit. Chris and I were two IV heroin addicts who loved to talk about all the coke we smoked, snorted and shot, all the pills we ate, smoked, all the weed we smoked and ate, all the booze we consumed and all the consequences we suffered. After making the show for 2 and a half years, Chris tragically relapsed and died from a fentanyl overdose. Dopey continued on, at first to mourn the horrible loss of Chris, but then to continue our mission - which was at its core, to keep addicts and alcoholics company. Whether to laugh at our time in rehab, or cry at the worst missteps we made, Dopey tells the truth about drugs, addiction and recovery. We continually mine the universe for stories rife with debauchery and highlight serious drug taking and alcoholism. We also examine different paths toward addiction recovery. We shine a light on harm reduction and medication assisted treatment. We talk with celebrities and nobodies and stockpile stories to be the greatest one stop shop podcast on all things drugs, addiction, recovery and comedy!
