Dopey: The Dark Comedy of Drug Addiction

Dopey is a podcast series that explores the world of drug addiction through a unique lens - dark comedy. Join hosts Dave and Chris as they share their own experiences with addiction while also delving into thought-provoking topics such as theories on addiction, sobriety in the workplace, self-compassion in recovery, and much more.
With over 400 episodes to choose from (and counting), Dopey never shies away from exploring even the most controversial topics related to drug use. Each episode features hilarious anecdotes about drugs (including cocaine, heroin, LSD) while also addressing serious issues such as homelessness or overdose in emergency rooms.
One notable episode includes Andre Royo's journey into recovery after playing Bubbles on The Wire. Another episode features Dr. Drew Pinsky discussing his theories about addiction treatment and rehab.
What sets Dopey apart from other podcasts about drug use is its willingness to find humor in even the darkest moments of life. Listeners will find themselves laughing out loud at ridiculous stories like tripping on 2CB at Chucky Cheese or hiding from cops after shooting cocaine.
But for all its humor, Dopey never loses sight of how serious substance abuse can be for individuals struggling with it or their families who are affected by it too. Whether you're someone who has personally struggled with addiction or someone who wants to better understand this complex issue facing our society today - Dopey is definitely worth checking out.
