Episode 64 - Spiritual Soldiers Mike Brown and Bianca Oliverio

April 23, 2019

Mike Brown and Bianca Oliverio along with James Lucier co-founded Spiritual Soldiers. They all struggled with drug/alcohol addiction, met through recovery and found help through a "spiritual solution". Along their road to recovery, they created the Spiritual Soldiers Coffee Compound; a safe-place and sober bar that helps end the stigma on addiction and smash the belief that once you're sober the party's over.
