Dopey: On the Dark Comedy of Drug Addiction

Todd calls in from rehab! He owns up to using dope while recording Dopey several weeks ago, tells us about getting fired from his most recent job, talks about his horrible detox, and fills us in on how he's doing now. We call Omar and read him a negative comment about us trying to surpass the SHAIR podcast in reviews. We read several emails and reviews, one of which involves a young woman getting locked out of her hotel while naked and intoxicated.
