  • Former NBA Player Mike Gminski

    17 MAR. 2022 · Mike Gminski was the seventh pick in the NBA Draft in 1980, after an all-American career at Duke. He averaged almost 12 points a game over a 14-year NBA career, where he says alcohol abuse really wasn't an issue. But then life threw some haymakers at the G-Man and he used drinking and drugs to cope. On July 13, 2020, Gminski's son Noah and his ex-wife drove him to Florida, where former teammate Jayson Williams is running a treatment center called Rebound Institute. By that point, Gminski was drinking a fifth of vodka a day and taking Xanax to deal with panic attacks. At Rebound, he learned how to stay sober and play the game of life again. Gminski talks with Pete about getting sober, a colorful NBA career, and his work as a successful TV analyst on college basketball games. And he does all his talking from Rebound, where he's now employed. But most importantly he talks about almost dying a year ago and living his best life today. Gminski calls it a miracle. We bet you'll call this a great podcast. https://www.facebook.com/reboundforlife

  • Nate Amor - Trans-Siberian Orchestra

    24 FEB. 2022 · Nate Amor performs in front of sold out arenas as one of the lead performers in the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. But it’s the high he chased off the stage that’s led to a long battle against alcohol and benzodiazepines. There’s a reason he performed in front of almost 750,000 fans over the 2021 holiday season with the TSO. But most importantly, there’s a reason he can help addicts out of the wilderness. https://nateamor.com/ https://instagram.com/nateamormusic?utm_medium=copy_link

  • NFL's Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson

    10 FEB. 2022 · Thomas “Hollywood” Henderson was one of the best young players in the NFL. By the time he was 25-years old, he’d made the Pro Bowl and played in three Super Bowls (winning one) on America’s Team the Dallas Cowboys. But as his career evolved so did his addiction to cocaine. It started hanging out in Los Angeles with Richard Pryor and Marvin Gaye and ended with a love for crack and finally big trouble with the law. Now, almost 40 years sober, this former NFL star is winning at the game of life “one day at a time” and taking a lot of folks along with him. Incredible man, a fantastic podcast
