Growing up in Beverly Hills, Amy Dresner had it all: a top-notch private school education, the most expensive summer camps, and even a weekly clothing allowance. But at 24, she started dabbling in meth in San Francisco and unleashed a fiendish addiction monster. Soon, if you could snort it, smoke it, or have sex with, she did. I love this interview with Amy for so many reasons. She is so fun and crazy funny that it brought out a different side of me, too. I tend to be a serious person- this is very serious business, addiction and recovery- and I often forget to let people see the other sides of me. From the moment Amy and I first spoke, we hit it off! We had a phone call the night before our interview in Los Angeles just to touch base and talk about the plan for the next day. Some people video their podcasts so I always get asked if there is going to be video etc… We were on the phone for an hour! We laughed and we connected on so many levels and I fell in love with her from that moment. We recorded in an office building and I feel certain the surrounding offices probably thought we were insane because we laughed so hard the whole time. It was several weeks later when I edited the show to schedule it to go live, and I had the same experience all over again. Sometimes I wish you guys could hear the unedited versions of these episodes, lol, because they are really funny and we are much less polished than the finished versions! I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I do. She is amazing and I am grateful I got to meet her and gain a new friend.
