Hosts Dave and Chris say we’re all looking for answers, or at least for a little relief from time to time. which is exactly what the podcast Dopey provides – relief. Dave and Chris, have a natural ability to speak to the listener about their experiences in recovery as if they were at home, on the their couch. The stories they share are often offensive, insane, and horrific, but they are always entertaining, absurd and wildly funny.
They met in a recovery treatment center in Connecticut and became fast friends. On air, their chemistry is clear as they share their cringe worthy stories with humor but also with a shamelessness that can only be provided through years of sobriety. They say the smartest decision they ever made was to get sober.
