This we week have a great conversation with Dave from Dopey podcast.
Dopey is an American self-help and comedy podcast about personal experiences of substance abuse and addiction. The show is anonymously hosted by Dave, a recovering addict based in New York City, and was formerly co-hosted by Chris, a fellow addict and graduate student from Boston, Massachusetts. Dave has described the show as being about “drugs, addiction, and other dumb shit.”
Initially conceived as a show about the humorous side of addiction, specifically excluding stories about recovery, the focus has changed over time, especially following Chris’ relapse and overdose death in July 2018. As of 2019, Dave hosts the show alone, with occasional celebrity guests.
