Going Deep: Adi's Downward Spiral And Recovery Story

Since it is the end of Recovery Month, we’re ‘Going Deep’ and taking a look at my own journey with addiction and recovery. Throughout this month, we’ve talked with some incredible guests and gained insight on their own journeys with recovery. This month is truly about opening up your eyes, ears, and hearts to different ways to heal because there is not a one-size-fits-all recovery journey for those struggling with addiction. It’s also incredibly important to remember that addiction is not a standalone thing; addiction comes out as a way to deal with a deeper, underlying issue that needs to be resolved in order to begin to truly recover.

Rewriting Recovery with Mishka Shubaly

Welcome to our second episode in our recovery month! Today we have another incredible guest, Mishka Shubaly. Mishka is a bestselling author, cult songwriter, and storyteller. After receiving an expensive MFA in Fiction from Columbia University, Mishka promptly realized he was more interested in playing music in dive bars than writing. He lived out of a Toyota minivan for a year, touring non-stop, and shared the stage with artists like The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and many others! He’s become a cult favorite, opening nationally for comedy iconoclast, Doug Stanhope; penning the soundtrack for The Unbookables documentary, and headling the Altercation Punk Comedy Tour. His most recent record, “Coward’s Path,” has even won praise from Johnny Depp and Joe Perry.

Getting Personal: A Conversation With My Sister

Today’s episode is a powerful one! I thought it would be the perfect closing to this month’s theme of ‘framily’ to actually speak to some framily! So today I have on my sister, Shirley. We often hear stories from one person’s perspective. And when you hear a story from one person’s perspective, you kind of just believe the entire story from their point of view. And IGNTD is all about radical transparency, so I thought it’d be really cool to hear my story from my sister’s perspective and what my whole journey was like from her point of view.
