That Sober Guy Podcast


That Sober Guy Podcast was created by Producer Shane Ramer. Shane battled a 17 year alcohol and drug addiction and in 2013 he sought treatment. Less than a year later, he started That Sober Guy Podcast as a way to share his own recovery and allow others to share theirs. Today, TSG is one of the top recovery podcasts with millions of downloads across multiple continents. Shane resides with his family in Northern California. Check out TSG at www.ThatSoberGuy.com

BART is the San Francisco and surrounding Bay Area’s public transit system. In many stations and surrounding areas, you will find the lost souls that have been eaten up by addiction and mental illness. When you come across many of the BART stations and corridors connecting the transit system, what you will see may be a shock to you. You see homeless people lined up stretching the span of the corridors, many of which are active drug users actively using drugs in plain view, vomit, needles, feces, urine, and garbage that has been left behind. Some call these people Junkies, others see them as human beings who have been all but forgotten and written off to the dark side of society. 

 

The question is, how do we solve this epidemic? 1 in 5  in California are homeless. It’s estimated that there are over 3 million people in California addicted to illegal drugs. Thats not counting the people that are addicted to “legal” prescription based drugs.
