Welcome to recovery in the middle ages, the podcast about two middle-aged suburban dads and their pursuit of life, love and recovery. Check out our private discussion group on Facebook  and join our exclusive patreon recovery community  where you get access to bonus shows, insider info and video episodes you don’t want to miss.

Unlike a lot of other recovery podcasts, we aren’t just war stories  or two guys talking over each other. We take a broad approach to recovery by reviewing books and movies, interviewing important voices in the recovery sphere, and deconstructing alternative recovery paths. We welcome everyone no matter what stage you are on your recovery journey.  

We call our fans Monksters, join the family and pursue a life of joy and serenity in a world of chaos and pain. Thanks for visiting, take a listen and send us an email, we are all in this together.  natX & Mike R
