Such Unfortunates: Overcoming Opiate Addiction (with Andrew Mann) | EP 10 (S2, EP 5)

Such Unfortunates: Overcoming Opiate Addiction (with Andrew Mann) | EP 10 (S2, EP 5)

Today I speak with Andrew Mann, author of the incredible, inspirational true story, Such Unfortunates, about successfully overcoming his opiate addiction. We discuss a bit of that story, as well as why opiate addiction is such a terrible thing, why people get into it, and how to support those going through addiction. This is a point of view not very commonly heard, and one you might not ever otherwise get the chance to hear.


About Andrew Mann:

Andrew Mann is 42 years old and lives in Bergen County, NJ. He is an Author and part-owner of a Solar Energy business. He is a recovering addict who also suffered from anxiety attacks since age 12 and depression his whole life. After years and multiple failed attempts, he was finally able to beat his addiction and has now devoted his life to helping people who suffer from addictions and issues related to childhood abuse. He has a fiancee, two step-children, two dogs, three cats, and they live in Bergen County, NJ. He enjoys surfing, exercises, alternative energy, boxing, MMA, writing, and doing podcasts/radio shows about the book while getting the message out that "If an addict like me can get clean, anyone can!"

Buy his book on Paperback or Kindle edition at, OR listen to it now on Audible by starting your free trial at (the narration is FANTASTIC!).

Part 2: Further Words of Advice from Max Ivey | EP 9 (Pt.2) (S2, EP 4)

Part 2: Further Words of Advice from Max Ivey | EP 9 (Pt.2) (S2, EP 4)

The thrilling conclusion of the Max Ivey saga. Did he die? Or did we just feel like splitting this episode in half? I suppose you'll have to listen in to find out. (Just kidding, Max is doing just fine, thank you very much.)


Need a refresher? Here's the description from part 1:

Max Ivey is literally the coolest guy ever-- and even better, he's also blind. He's so cool in fact, that we couldn't fit our interview into just one episode; it had to be split in half. Listen to the story of the blind entrepreneur who owns his own amusement park/carnival ride distribution company and how he is able to find positivity in his difficult life.


About Max:

I’m a totally blind man who transformed himself from a morbidly obese failed carnival owner to a respected amusement equipment broker in the best health of his life. Along the way, I learned so many new skills and so much about myself. In addition to brokering amusement equipment, I am now an award-winning self-help author, entertaining motivational speaker, life goals coach, and online media publicist. I also love to sing and mix music with my public talks. And I host a podcast called The What’s Your Excuse? Show, where me and my guests help others become the person they were meant to become.

By simply changing how we see the world, can we REALLY be happier? Listen to this week's episode to find out!

More about Frank:

Frank King, Suicide Prevention Speaker, and Trainer was a writer for The Tonight Show for 20 years.

Depression and suicide run his family. He’s thought about killing himself more times than he can count. He’s fought a lifetime battle with Major Depressive Disorder and Chronic Suicidality, turning that long dark journey of the soul into five TEDx Talks and sharing his lifesaving insights on Mental Health Awareness with associations, corporations, and colleges.

A Motivational Public Speaker who uses his life lessons to start the conversation giving people permission to give voice to their feelings and experiences surrounding depression and suicide.

And doing it by coming out, as it were, and standing in his truth, and doing it with humor.

He believes that where there is humor there is hope, where there is laughter there is life, nobody dies laughing. The right person, at the right time, with the right information, can save a life.
