Reports, NPR, a "Critic Faults Alcoholics Anonymous For Lack Of Evidence." Plus, a recent story in the New York Times asks, "Do Alcoholics Anonymous participants do better at abstinence than nonparticipants because they are more motivated? Or is it because of something inherent in the A.A. program?" Plus AA is not commenting, as they have "no opinion on outside issues"


Plus, guest co-host Antoine Nauleau drops by to dicuss the new dating app, Sober. Explains Nauleau:

Sober is a fun way to connect with other sober people around you! Swipe right to "like" or swipe "left" to pass anonymously. If someone likes you back, you're a match! If you come across someone you know, don't be shy, send them a friend request. Chat with friends and matches, or share pictures and post status updates to all your friends.

An average of 12%-14% of the population is sober, and with the emergence of "healthy lifestyles" and the rate of addiction climbing, there has been an increase in people choosing to live sober. People in sobriety tend to socialize mainly among themselves, due to the support and commonality of one another, and to avoid tempting or dangerous situations. This has created a strong community of people who are ready to start dating and socializing in an online environment that is designed solely for people like themselves.
