Today's Unashamed Alcoholic episode is a very special one. Anyone who has followed my story knows that NHL player Bobby Ryan played a huge role in me coming forward publicly with my alcoholism which then sparked the idea for a podcast.
Since the outset of the podcast, I've wanted to connect with Bobby- first as a guest, and later just to ensure he knew of his role in my story. Well, after months of trying, I finally reached him a few weeks ago and had a private conversation with him today.
While this isn't an interview with him as he prefers not to do that, this is a story of how my story has come full circle. And it's about how I was able to thank someone whose story meant so much to mine.
I hope you enjoy this episode.
