Episode 20: Overcoming addiction, with Owen Jones

Hey podcast, in this episode I’m joined by Owen Jones, who’s opening gambit was ‘I’m an ex-alcoholic, and I can help people’. Owen talks about his relationship with alcohol alongside his high-powered career and loving family, the coping mechanisms, and, ultimately, overcoming his addiction.

Alongside his day job Owen’s become a personal trainer, and also recently started a website ‘DrunkDadToDryDad.com’. I hope you enjoy.
