This episode of Sober Cast is not an AA speaker, if you need to hear a meeting please pick a different episode, this is a bit of AA history. 

The June 24th episode of Sober Cast was Bill B telling his story, he was the author of the screenplay for the 1989 movie My Name is Bill W., as the author of the screenplay he spent considerable time interviewing Lois W. the wife of Bill W.

In this Sober Cast episode I have edited together the three hours of interviews that he did with Lois regarding her life with Bill and the formation AA. It is a really excellent quality recording of Lois speaking in great detail about her life before and after Bill got sober and became the co-founder of AA. 

My thanks to all of you that emailed and requested we add this to the podcast.
