Relinquishee/Adoptee and Addiction/Recovery Podcast Resources – Part 2

From the AA Beyond Belief Website:

“AA Beyond Belief is is website and podcast, but it’s much more than that. AA Beyond Belief is a refuge, a home in AA for agnostics, atheists, freethinkers, and all others who seek a secular path of recovery within Alcoholics Anonymous. The stories presented here reflect the broad and varied experience of those who choose to walk the secular path in AA. “

Several podcasts feature adoptees in recovery.  The Website includes a search feature whereby a search for the term “adoption” and “adoptee” yields a myriad of podcasts, including (amongst many others):

Episode 173:  Adoptees and Addiction – This episode features a conversation with two people in recovery who were adopted as children. Lisa K., a Korean adoptee describes her struggle with identification as an Asian person growing up with a white family in a white world. David B. Bohl, author of Parallel Universes: The Story of Rebirth shares his personal journey as one who was relinquished at birth as a way of providing some perspective that may help understand the correlation between being adopted and problems with substance abuse later in life.

Episode 82: Parallel UniversesParallel Universes: The Story of Rebirth is a new book, a recovery memoir written by David B. Bohl. Today, AA Agnostica published a review of the book written by Thomas B. while here at AA Beyond Belief, we are posting a podcast featuring a conversation with David. I won’t go into a lot of detail here about the book, you can read about that at AA Agnostica. Instead, I will introduce the podcast with a few words about David, and my thoughts upon reading the book and speaking with the author.

Episode 148: Lisa K. – Lisa, a Korean adoptee shares her experience as an adoptee and how it impacted her alcoholism and recovery.
