Today we're talking to Adam Pike. This episode was originally recorded to be released during alcohol awareness week as we delve into Adam's experiences of addiction, relationship breakdown, physical injury and pain. While we cover a lot of heavy topics which might be triggering for some, it's a hopeful conversation with lots of wisdom and learning from Adam who is now helping others with their challenges.
