Brian Hatch threw away his dreams of being a stand-up comedian to spend his nights in casinos. After a 14-year battle with gambling and relapses, he decided to try another way - talking about his feelings. In January of 2015, he started the world’s first gambling addiction podcast. Since that time, the podcast has grown to 200 plus episodes of heartbreaking first-hand problem gambling stories; recovery meetings, interviews with problem gambling advocates, judges, clinicians, sportswriters, and those who study the addiction. Brian speaks from the heart about his own recovery and hopes it helps.
