I first heard Robyn at the Living Sober Western Round Up, his story was one that has always stuck with me.

I really wanted to include him in this podcast & spent a few hours looking through the archives at the Living Sober website trying to find the year he spoke in the old programs.

I could not remember his last initial or where he was from, but I did remember his first name, eventually I found it in the archives and was able to find this speak from 2000 in Houston.

Im listing the audio quality as a 3, it's a 4-5 in the first 2/3's of the recording but the last third has background noise, I have cleaned it up as best I can, and overall it is a 3.  Repost
