Virtue in the Wasteland Podcast

Jeff talks about why he thinks Dan is one of the most together person he knows, then shares a bit about what it's like to have family and friends who are addicts or recovering addicts. Then we include Dan's presentation at the 2016 Christ Hold Fast Conference, in which he shares about his struggles with alcohol and his six years of sobriety.

Jeff begged Dan to let him post this, because of how much it meant to him personally.

We left in some language this time, instead of bleeping it.

If you don't need the first part, you can find the audio by itself, along with other good talks, including one by Jeff here:
