Marc closes out 2017 with some old friends. Author Michael Marcus might not have made it to the garage if his life had continued the way it was going. He talks with Marc about his days of criminal behavior, addiction and eventual sober living, all of which he wrote about in his new book, #1 Son. Also, Marc's friend Dr. Stephen Dansiger returns to the garage to talk trauma, PTSD, and treating patients in the Trump era. This episode is sponsored by Spotify and Backblaze.
Dr. Stephen Dansiger is better known to the WTF audience as Marc’s trusty psychotherapist friend Dr. Steve. But most listeners probably don’t know about his own painful journey from rock stardom, through drugs and alcohol, into mental hospitals, beyond disappointment, and ultimately to sobriety, getting his PhD and starting a family.
