Jean Greer McCarthy is creator of the wildly-popular, recovery blog, Unpickled; a cohost of recovery podcast, The Bubble Hour; and a monthly columnist for addiction.com.
Sober since 2011, Jean lives a very active life in Alberta Canada.
Once again, Chris ignored the common wisdom to "never meet your idols and/or never podcast with your influences" and asked Jean to join us. She graciously accepted.
