New Podcast from Recovery Radio -- WE ARE ALL IN RECOVERY NOW

James Boyd and John Case return to Recovery Radio, LIVE Tuesdays, 9AM on Enlighten Radio
As plague spreads across the land, and the economy does a dead cat bounce -- the people are sent home, ordered to shelter. But do they have safe shelter? Do they have food, after the last check. Heat? Power? 
Are the necessities of life in shelter temporarily unobtainable? 
Here is our first episode, getting used to remote broadcasting our studio via Zoom. 
Check out our theme song while listening:

Except: at 9:30 Eastern Time this morning, Fanny Crawford and Stas Zielkowski resume their live Storytelling on Enlighten Radio. A lifetime of teaching lends Stas a treasure chest of tales, and Fanny has an extraordinary talent of telling an ancient and weighty myth in a trip to a grocery store.

If you are pandemic-struck, a good opportunity do nuthin, and still have fun, and learn something too.
