Ever wonder what goes on inside those “12 Step” Meetings?
While taking psychology courses in graduate school, broadcast executive Denise McIntee observed 12 Step Meetings as part of her coursework. She grew fascinated by these openly secretive gatherings; the stories told were far more compelling, scary, funny, and real than anything she ever heard on radio, television or anywhere else! She began to produce recorded and live programs featuring people in recovery willing to share not only the success of their sobriety, but the insanity and suffering that drove them to seek help in the first place.
Since 1999, the program has been distributed throughout the United States on terrestrial radio and elsewhere through digital means. A special version of the program is proudly produced exclusively for American Forces Radio and is heard on all U.S. military installations and ships at sea around the globe. It’s grown beyond a simple radio program; it’s become a recognized brand of entertaining information for those in recovery, seeking recovery, or merely desiring to be inspired and transformed by true stories of human beings overcoming adversity.
