This is a special day for Nod Squad as Unc on this very day celebrates 60 days of sobriety & 60 days of survival inside the inpatient treatment facility he willingly checked himself into. It hasn't been easy managing a podcast from within the confines that a rehab erects & protects around our beloved co-host but we love you all Squadron and are always excited to bring you consistent content. In this older "pre-treatment" recording, Unc rants solo style and shares his experience concerning his stay at the downtown Los Angeles County Jail (also known to locals as the Twin Tower). Basic politics, code of conduct, and regular inmate routine is briefly discussed as well as the various kinds of Macgyver themed methods many resort to in order to alleviate the overall unpleasantness one goes through when being processed, locked into a cage & dehumanized altogether. Many various stories of drug smuggling & drug ingesting ensues as well as the time Unc was elected not only right hand man of "The Woods" but also 1/3 part of the "Bu-Bop" Squad in this ridiculously hilarious episode of Nod Squad.

Special Guest, total dirt bag dump truck misogynist "J-Wak" (Unc's old time high school friend & once heroin companion) comes on the podcast to talk about his random skid row rehab hook ups with hotties, side bunkie drug encounters, and near miss muggings. Trigger Warning, the thoughts expressed by J-Wak are not endorsed or supported by Nod Squad or Unc and we do not take participation in his ideologies concerning our beloved female gender <3 PS, slide into the Nod Squad "DM's" or email (NodSquadPodcast@gmail.com) to find out which previous guest is the dirt culprit that mysteriously appears outside of Unc's bedroom window and takes him out to tweaker town.

Unc records one last time before making the transition from detox into rehab. Talks about whats been going on in his life while Top Tier Squadron / brethren member Marcus comes back on to tell his tale of how he hitchhiked from Florida all the way to California and everything that happened in between. This is a very special moment in Nod Squad history as both hosts of Nod Squad; Brian & Ryan are clean and practicing recovery, are finally reunited and living in Santa Barbara and will be podcasting together again for the first time in almost a year. Both are so very thankful to be at this moment and hope you are all doing well out there. Stay Safe, Stay Strong and Peace, Love & All of the Above.

A very very special episode of Nod Squad as Unc's EX GF Lindsey calls in to the podcast and the two update one another with how life has been since they last spoke. Amazingly, both Unc and his Ex are on good terms and close friends, showing that even Syd&Nancy/Kurt&Courtney drug relationships can have a happy ending. Some of the most debaucherous and intense stories are told on this one; that's all I will say. You will have to tune in and listen to hear for yourselves but I guarantee you will laugh your fucking ass off, cry in a weeping willow fashion, and then laugh again so hard your abdominal muscles will feel the burn on this top shelf episode of Nod Squad.

Good friend, fellow Dopey Nation & Brethren of our Squad Jeremy T calls in to describe what life is like at the best recovery center I know of; Bob Forest's Alo Recovery Center. He's been killing it in this game called life. Taking not only the leap of faith into treatment while at the same time relocating across the nation and immersing oneself into the most insane city of fallen angels is no easy task. Its a commitment to doing whatever it takes to improve his life and I am more than proud of him. Jeremy, if you're reading this you helped inspire me to get into inpatient myself and I'm glad to call you a friend. Hope you are all staying strong and staying safe out there and I love you brother.

Harm Reductionist Katie makes a special appearance to discuss exactly what Harm Reduction means for the addict themself as well as how it affects society as a whole & how safe injection sites have made a positive impact. She also discusses the current state of prohibition, aka the war on drugs, its history, and who it truly benefits; which isn't the addict or the loved ones surrounding them. This isn't our normal everyday podcast telling stories of our deviant past but is however a very informative and educational podcast that we know you will find entertaining on today's episode of Nod Squad.

Close friend and fellow Squad member "DoDo" (don't ask) comes on to discuss the police shootout / wrongful persecution against her ex bf; who will remain completely anonymous and hidden within the fogs of secrecy. DoDo (no not Dido, possibly grammy award winning musician. DoDo as in the bird I suppose) details the current situation regarding a courtroom "he said she said" vs corrupt police who refuse to take responsibility for the itchiness confined within their trigger fingers of their firearm wielding hands; no but rather they prefer to pin a wonky, full of holes, fairy tale of a story upon any & every junkie or tweaker within range of what their badge & utility belts can round together w/ the greatest of ease. We also have a handful of lovely compositions, remixes & VIPS from the very talented H8R Dubs ( SC link can be found here: H8R Dubs https://soundcloud.com/h8rdubs ). Unc reads a fan post and clickbaits his brethren in the Squad to some special surprises in the works coming next episode all in a very "run from the police" edition of Nod Squad.
