That Sober Guy Podcast


My name is Shane Ramer. As long as I was high I didn't have to feel. After 17 years of struggling with drugs and alcohol on September 11th, 2013, I got some help. Life is pretty good today, and I like to talk shit and laugh about it all while sharing some of my own experience with the hope that it might help someone else. I try not to take things too serious, and I fold my toilet paper, people who crumple have to all wrong! Check us out at www.ThatSoberGuy.com
