Santos probe sought by Democrats over House ethics
"Two Democrats are asking the House ethics committee to investigate newly elected Republican George Santos, who has admitted lying about his background and faces campaign finance questions. Fellow New York lawmakers Richie Torres and Dan Goldman are asking for the probe, saying Santos has failed to uphold the integrity expected of House members. Some democratic leaders say Santos should be kicked out of the house after being sworn in last week, but so far GOP leaders like Steve scalise have refused to take action. This is something that's being handled internally. Obviously, there were concerns about what we had heard. Democratic caucus CRP Aguilar notes Santos helped give the GOP at slim majority and voted to make Kevin McCarthy speaker. Kevin McCarthy owns George Santos. Locke stock and barrel. Saying the only reason Santos was seated last week was so he could vote for McCarthy. Sagar Meghani, Washington.

Nigel Farage on Why Liz Truss Was the Victim of a 'Globalist Coup'
"Nigel Farage joins us right now. Nigel, welcome back to the program for our American listeners. Can you offer some clarity about what the heck is going on in your beautiful sister country across the pond? An astonishing four months, Boris Johnson, the elected prime minister goes because, frankly, he wasn't truthful with the British public about many things. And elected as a conservative, he rather governed as a liberal, and people got upset. Then the queen dies. You know, she'd been there for 70 years. That was very destabilizing. We then got a new prime minister who attempted to introduce conservative philosophy. She wanted to reduce the size of a state and cut taxation. And the world went to war against her. The International Monetary Fund spoke about our mini budget in a way they'd never spoken about any country ever before. The American administration piled in. The German Chancellor piled in, and in the end, you might argue that some of their tax cuts weren't very well thought through, but we have been through in the course of the last two weeks. Nothing less than a globalist coup, we get a mangled Jeremy hum, out of left field, becomes Chancellor of the exchequer, and now we have a new prime minister. He's taken over today, our third and 7 weeks, but the name of Richie sunac, I can pronounce it, even if Joe Biden can't. And he of course is our first former Goldman Sachs prime minister. He's a globalist. He's a supporter of Central Bank, digital currencies. He's barely conservative at all. And it all goes to show that the British Conservative Party isn't conservative at all. And we have a real problem on our hands.

"Terry, Pluto, I was telling some friends who are Red Sox fans sadly this weekend who were houseguests that I was talking to you today, and that I've been following Steve kwon because your wife, Roberta, who does ministry with you, started loving on Steve Kwan early and I think Roberta is as sharp as you are as observer. I was reminded when my dying grandfather was asking me about Richie scheinblum in 1968. And Steve Kwan is that guy. He's everybody's Bronx Burnett come to life. I mean, it's an amazing story. It really is. And on top of it, I'm 5 foot 9 and I could maybe look down on him a little bit. He might be just as tall as me because he has hair. And this is a guy that was surprised to be recruited out of Oregon state. He was drafted in the 5th round by Cleveland. He was surprised he thought he was going to fence around. He was just kind of a small spark, what kind of player that a lot of us maybe who were older grew up watching and that is not the type of player that base a like.

'Detransitioner' Ritchie Herron's Transgenderism Warning to Parents
"Richie, let me ask you, you obviously regret it, do you see it tens of thousands of young people in America that are getting medically mutilated and are being sold kind of everything's going to get better for parents that are watching right now and grandparents that have kids that are entertaining this, what is your message to them? My message to them is get them off the Internet the Internet feels this addiction, whether it's the faun, whether it's on the computer or whatever and get them outside and back in reality, it's so important that they have an anchor back in the real world and they're not constantly looking on the phones and spending the time alone in the rooms. If when it gets to all the children, it's much, much more difficult, like all over the age of 16 and 18 because you can't do this, but for the under the age of 16 are in some places aiding, I would fully say, take that computer out of the room, for instance, have it in a fun new space. And it's going to take work. It's not something that you can argue with as well. And also accept for some people, this may be the answer, but in my opinion, I feel like that is an extraordinarily low percentage of the actual people who do transition and I feel like a lot of people who transition now are either gay autistic bisexual or just a little bit gender non conforming and they've been robbed into this idea that they need to be someone else

Charlie Sits Down With Ritchie Herron, a Male 'Detransitioner'
"Joining us right now is Richie herron, he is a fabulous new peace out on human events dot com. A detransitioners perspective awakening and the dream of gender utopia Richie joins us right now. Welcome to the program. Hello, thank you very much for having me on, Charlie. Yes, of course. So Richie, tell us your story. And the age of 25 had begun, identify as trans and at the age of 26. I began medically transitioning a male. I was always male. One of the things I mentioned in the article was about the lies live in within the language. So you might hear people saying things like male female or male female to male, in my case, but in my belief, I just say male. You know, I never went to female. I was always male. I never sweat, no matter what I did to my body, which was I took an androgen blocker at the age of 26, which stopped the testosterone from working in my body. Led I would start estrogen, not long after that. And when I was at the age of 30, just a few days before me 31st birthday actually, I had genital surgery, which I almost immediately regretted. And by general surgery, I mean a penile inversion was scroll graft, which is they remove everything down there, drill a hole in your pelvis, turn it inside out. It sounds horrific because it is, that's exactly what it is. They use these terms like bottom surgery and top surgery, but let's talk about what they are, you know? These are mastectomies and breast augmentation on males and for females, obviously. They have them vasectomies, the hysterectomies, but they call it top and bottom surgery. Just to flip it up a bit. But when you say penile inversion was scroll or graph that really paints a picture of what it is.

"And I'm like, why is this? Because they didn't find the balance in their money. I'll talk with venture capitalists and logo. Money is easy time is heart. Now, we wish it could all be that way for everybody that money is so easy. But at the end of the day, we can't equate money with time freedom. We can do an extent, but you know many millionaires that have no time and hate their lives. So that's not the main factor. So the thing is, balance is a weird word. I don't even believe that it's an actual thing, but the essence of what work life balance is what we're looking for. So let's say it this way. Balance in physics means. Motionless. It doesn't move. Nobody actually wants a motionless life. It's a wrong word. So we move from balance to work life freedom. And or to work life flexibility or to a number of things that we can talk about. And in that sense, we move from trying to have 8 hours of sleep, 8 hours of play in 8 hours of work to I can do whatever I want whenever I want because it's my decision and I'm also leaving space open. I'm literally architecting a life that allows me space to grow. Put it this way. An architect does not build buildings. They draw them. A general contractor does not build buildings. They sub it out. They don't even pick up a hammer if they don't want to. So at the end of the day, whether you're an executive or an entrepreneur or an employee, it's how you work. Change how you're paid and you'll change your life. And in that sense, you'll be able to find the freedom that you're looking for. Fire nation, a lot of power here.

"We love who he is, but we also just love the fact that, you know what, it's kind of nice to put something good out there because, you know, and it's interesting because Richie has always been very clear that this is not a how to manual. And that he didn't want to be preaching to people that and we told him and to be honest, there are some pressure and there's something drew I think you may have noticed. Richie is interesting to me because once he decides that this is the right way to do it, he's just unshakable. And he's like, I'm not doing how to manual. I'm not preaching other people. But what we believe is, as Richie said, if people see somebody who's fucked up as me can get through it, maybe they'll think they can also. Yeah, and that's why these stories are important to tell. But Richie, this is what I picked up about Ritchie early in this conversation is that he has to his compass has got to be due north all the time where he's fucked. And so he knows he's got to live with integrity and honesty and clarity. And doing what's right. Are you sponsoring other people now, Richie? Yeah. I bet. I bet. Yeah. Well, where let me ask you this. Where can we find, where can we see you now? You've been on everything, acting wise. Is there something on the air now? We can kind of look for. I've been on the Days of Our Lives and say yes, blue blood. Criminal Minds, major crime. That kind of thing. Always playing a bad guy. Or maybe the Cobb who arrests the lead. That's really bad guy. Or you're the dirty cop for and Richie on July 16th at Barnes and noble at the grove at 2 p.m., you can buy tickets which gets you the book. And we'll all be there in person and then you can meet Richie. Gary's. We're going to be. Hang on, gentlemen. Gary, are we going to be able to post this in time? What was the date again? July 16. Probably. Okay. All right, good. So July 16, everybody. Go see Richard. Are you going to be there too, John? Yes, and Dave kristy. All right, excellent. Richie, thank you for sharing the story. I think it is so important that people hear it. And of course, the service part of this in terms of serving the added community. I really always felt for the last 20 years I felt this is the problem of our time. And we didn't even get into childhood trauma stuff, which I'm sure you had a big dose of, which is always lurking around in these stories as well. Let me just sort of ask as a final chapter. Are you having trauma therapy? Did you did you get any professionally managed stuff or have you been able to manage it in your relationships with peers in the program? Well, I have got EMDR because for different traumatic things that happen. And that has helped a lot. Good. Yeah, it's an important piece. I call that sort of complete recovery, which is there's recovery, which is Richie's a living breathing example that, but then you're left both from the addiction, the disease, and where it takes you. And from whatever traumas you were trying to manage with the drugs, you're left with the trauma, still sitting there and you got to kind of go back and manage that stuff. And sometimes people do it in their with their redoing their 5th steps over and over again and sort of finding that safe environment with their sponsor. But usually you need a little bit of professionally managed trauma therapies to get thoroughly through that stuff. And John, I hope when you do this, that they'll be, I just imagine it as back and forth in time. You know what I mean? Where he is now helping somebody and then going back into it, you know? We want to follow his path of recovery and then go back and every episode to see where it came from and how it fuels how it feeds each other. Amazing. Richie, anything you want to finish up with? Anything people should know and if I missed anything, let me just be clear that any science would trauma wasn't family related because I had a pretty normal upbringing. My parents were okay, but I would just say, if you're interested and you want to see the book, you can get it on Amazon, Simon and Schuster burns and noble or if you don't like reading and you want to hear the audible. I do all of it. Oh, have fun. That's awesome.

"Don't feel good about it. So now you can have them. I get them away, but then some of my really bad customers, like I knew I had a problem when I was dealing with some of these people, I would make them like Jesus, this guy really has a fucking brother. And the really bad ones every time they bring me for Coke, I go up and meet them and there was one guy he was the gardener for the city San Francisco. He called up to house because he had the Coke and I was like, hey, just these meetings and you can go there and you don't have to get high anymore because they've made it. And he loves that he goes, I don't have a problem. He goes, no, you go to your maid and he said he said that I could stop any time I wore it. And I couldn't understand it because he was way worse than I was. Yeah, and then it struck me. I was like, just because I get it doesn't mean everybody else is ready to get it. God, that's the truth, right? How long were you going to meetings and still trafficking drugs? I had stopped completely as soon as I started making. Really? Not a few weeks or a few months. So I got my last my last ounce was what I got for that guy for Burning Man, so that was August 2010. And then I never got any more. And when did you start going to meetings? September. 2010. Well, for the movie, John. Have it overlap a little more for the TV show or movie, whatever you guys are doing. Because it's not uncommon. That's that screwed up thinking again. It takes a while to really, and this is what I want to get at. Go ahead, John. No, you go ahead. Well, I was going to say that the really a lot of people have a struggle with and I want to hear this from Richie is in order to be sober. You have to lead a certain kind of life. And that's a life of honesty and integrity and just a healthy life. You have to do that, or you will use again, because as soon as you start lying in bullshitting in any way, off it goes. Because the first person you're bullshit is yourself. And so I'm wondering if it was hard for you because you'd had such a long run in multiple cultures, not leading that kind of life. Was that hard for you? Well, in terms of the deal and I can't,

"Down, things weren't going well for me. It was just years of abuse and, you know, I did like a lot of Coke over a period of days, drank a lot of vodka and, you know, just basically decided that there was things we're never going to get better. It's time to time to finish it. Yeah, it's interesting. Craig Ferguson has a great story about his bottom. Being that he, I forget exactly the detail, but it was Christmas Eve. And he decided he was going to kill himself. And he went to his favorite Bard, drank himself to the point that he passed out, woke up on Christmas morning and had urinated all over himself, thrown up, whatever. And was like, okay, now I'm going to hit and of course alcoholics how they think. He's going to do a swan dive off the Tower Bridge. He's not just going to kill himself. He's going to jump off the Tower Bridge. Proper dramatic exit. And he said he came downstairs full of urine and whatever and had up all nights or drinking. And the bar was empty in the morning, but the bartender was behind the bar. And he's the guy said, come on, Craig. Have one more, have one more shot for me for Christmas Day. And he proceeded to go back into a binge. And it saved his life. That binge that day saved his life. But he realized that that was that was it. Because he ended up back in the same state. It was thinking a little more clearly about trying to find ways out, which is, of course, available everywhere. So did you do crack? Are we used to snorting cocaine? Did I want? Did you use crack or were you snorting drugs always? Did you smoke the cocaine? I did cry for maybe 5 times ever, but I never really liked this. For me, I'm kind of chatting and friendly. So cocaine works for me because I have a few lines. I go out and talk to people, but a few times I did crack, it was really antisocial. It's like sitting in a room, nobody can speak. You seem going. Like this kind of problems breathe and so it sounds really junky like. So thank God I never liked to crack, but I did it maybe 5 times. I wasn't a fan of. Yeah, that is that is a bad road. That goes to a bad place fast. So here we are. Oh, the other thing I caught my attention is when you said John that Australia was on his was not a four step or 5th step. Where did Australia was, what did you mean by that, John? You're forced out. Yeah. So Australia was on your four step. Now, that caught my attention in that, the first time you did your fourth step and presented it to your sponsor, did he accept it? Or did he give you shit about it? Did he get any, was there a problem? Here's what I'm getting at. Was there a problem in your 5th step? Because I sense a problem. And I'll tell you what it is in a second, but you tell me with your sponsor so. Before I did my fort ever in the book, I call it the shit list. Before I did that, I kind of thought I was a good guy. You know, I really thought, you know, it was a nice guy in general, I felt like people fucked me over, you know. But in general, I was behaving myself well. And there's part of, you know, for those who don't know, the fourth step is an inventory of all the people places and things you're not about. You're mad as and the reasons why, and then the last part is you do what was your part of this. And when I first did my part was completely empty. That's what I was. That's what I was sensing. That's what I said, because you're a pilot, you're really you're starting you're starting your fourth step from resentment. That is where you are starting your fourth time. That's not where the four 7 is supposed to start. I resent Australia. Yeah, one of the first guys I had on there was this guy called Ollie, you know, I used to be a drug dealer and when I was young, this guy, I got caught up with the cops when he was about 19 or something like that in Ireland. One of my employees was this guy called Ali. And he got cope with the cops, and then he set me up and then I got caught. So he was like one of the top ones on the left as well and my sponsor was this guy called Bernard or Americans would say Bernard. So Bernard, he says he says, well, what's the first one? I said, Ali, this is what to do to you. He sent me up with the cops. And then he asked me, what was your partner? Stand up guy. He never switched on anybody. It looks like he goes. Yeah, he's on drugs illegal. This is one of your own cell drugs. You're working at all earlier. And then I completely escaped me, you know? And look at the big picture at all. It really is interesting. Yeah, you can't think, he must have said fuck you a few times, right? In your fourth step, come on, fuck you. Sure. Yeah, right. Right. But I was like, I was like, no, no, we have to be thorough because I heard you have to be thorough if you want to stay. You know, I'm special. I'm special. Let me tell you my special resentments. It's fantastic. We're laughing at it because this is how it works. This is the nature of recovery and nature of alcoholism and these things collide and recovery, and it's amusing. And do you tell your story at the speaker meetings now? Oh yeah, that's how this all started, you know, people ask me a lot because I have an unusual story and I'm far and there's not many Irish girls here in LA. Yeah. There's a few go ahead. John, please. There's something that's interesting to me about this aspect of the 12th sets where you have to, you know, you're supposed to help others. And Richie tells an interesting story about when he started getting sober, he became like he wanted to help others and who should he help first, but his clients that he's selling drugs to. And then how you got out of it, I thought was interesting. Tell that story. This is getting convoluted. Tell me what happened. So basically, after I got sober, and I started going to the meetings and decided I wanted to really do this. I realized that I can't be committing crime anymore. I can not be selling drugs and be sober. So I had to tell my gang that I'm not going to be taking the scope every week because they bring me Coke every week and it's selling and giving the money. So I had to let them know I'm out of the business. And so I rang up the guy, his name was Ronald and I told him I said, you know, I can't do this anymore. I'm sober. I need to, you know, I won't be able to take his own every week off here. And he wanted to meet me. So then I was really worried because like, why couldn't I just tell him on the phone? He's told me to meet him. Yeah, I was kind of worried. I didn't know whether there were going to give me one in the back of the head because there was no reason to see me. He knew so. Well, yeah, too much. So I met him on a Saturday and he got into my truck and bracing myself and, you know, we're listening to the radio there was a way to go on the radio and he says, I'm all about a waste. He basically just wanted to look me in the eye and see if I was telling the truth about what I said. You know, I was a drug addict. You can't really trust drug addicts and I told him, you know, you know, I really can't do this anymore. I'm sorry because I'm trying to be celebrated. The problem. And he looked at me and he said, you know, you're a good guy, you've always been straight with us, and if you have a problem, then you're doing the right thing. And I said, oh, okay, cool. And then he offered to buy my customers off me. And I was like, no, you can have them. Oh my God. And he was like, no, no, you don't have to see anything. You don't have to touch anything. I'll give you a residual income every week. Give me your customers and you'll get your residual.

"For personal reasons. Then they asked us this guy I knew and he was he was the next colony used to work together with him. He was he was a page black man. A lot of gangsters working construction too. So rang the play up, then was not saying you're Joe and I asked told him the story and I asked him what he wacked this guy and he said he'd do it for 5 grand and I didn't have 5 grand. I thought I'd give him two. He's like, no, no, I can't do this. And then I was going to rub this terrorist in San Francisco that laundered money for the Irish terrorists. I had a plan on Robin this place and I asked some of my friends to do what they were all too scared. I had a girlfriend at the time. I asked the girlfriend. She didn't want to do it either. And then Joe called me back and he told me he killed the guy for two grand and I was going to get this guy white and basically I was suicidal at the end of it I just I decided not to kill the guy and I called up a friend that I had who was sober in 12 step meetings and he took me to my first meeting. Wow. Well, there's one thing that I will interject about the comedy of all this. I know nothing about that sounds funny, but when he started telling this to Dave and I, we drunk at a logic is so amazing. Yeah. Because with a straight face, he's explaining basically how he has to avenge his girlfriend and the girlfriend's boyfriend is a problem. And knock off this terrorist bar and nobody sees how brilliant my ideas are like, oh my God. Or when he was telling us about doing the inventory and you have to do the shit list and he goes, number one, Australia. And we're like, it's a whole continent that is on his, you know, who's done him wrong. So it's a little, I see his life almost in terms of the Scorsese movie. It's awful, but it's so compelling and Richie, you made it through so they're always a little bit of a humor to it. Is that fair? Well, it's humorous because the motivational system is broken when people are making these decisions. And the only motivation that emerges is doing better, more drugs. And so your question about why did he join do anything? Let alone join an Asian gang, whatever he was doing, the answer was better, more drugs. Access. And sometimes sometimes sex comes into it, sometimes money comes into it, but it's all really more drugs. It's really, really what the deal is. And that's the motivation. And so everything else is sort of seen through that prism justified, right? To you, you're like, what? How could you, because your brain's motivated normally? He can go back to that state and go, yeah, yeah, I made perfect sense. The gang said pure cocaine. That's what you do, right? When you need drugs, you need money, you go with those guys. What's the problem, John? Yeah. But there's a piece missing here that I want to get into. You skipped over how you suddenly became suicidal. Now, were you were you still doing the methadone or were you doing meth at methamphetamine? Was it all still cocaine and alcohol? Was it all cooking out? In Australia. So I was in Australia for like three or four months. It didn't last long out there. So in America, my drink was sambuca again as my drug was cocaine. Okay. So at the time when I was suicidal I was doing a lot of cocaine. Yeah. And the suicide I was around your desperation. Where did that come in? The very last time I'd say probably I've lost count of the number of times where I've been suicidal, but at the very end, basically it was around the time of Burning Man, you know, that big red and the desert. Yeah. Somebody pulled me in touch with an undertaker from Ireland who was coming out to Burning Man and he wanted to have fun to cope to go to Burning Man. And so this funeral director, he needed the Coke. So I got an ounce, gave him half and then the other half went up my nose in a few days. I was

"The problem. 250 books a gram. So you switched to something else. Would you switch to? Yeah. Australia was very expensive in general. There's this box line, it's called goo, made from fish bones. A box. At the time, there was a drug that hadn't been made illegal yet called mephedrone. MDMA was doing that for a while as well. Isn't that cat? Anyway, long story short. I don't know what it's called, but it's called methadone and. Managed to make it back and the old marriage was on the outs. So when I go back to back to America, part of the deal when I go back into the house was the wife you said she wanted me to go see a shrink. So I went to see the strike at the time and you know when there's an intake at a psychedelic resolve is that you have to fill out this paperwork. It's like all the details about your life and you know some of the questions were about drug and alcohol intake and at the time I didn't want to seem like too much of a theme. So I said on an average night out I would drink maybe 6 times, maybe half a gram of Coke. But the very first very first time I met this lady, you know, she was reading the thing and she listened to me for a little bit. She said that she's like, you know, I think it might be an alcoholic, maybe it might need to go to 12 step meetings. And I was like, no, let's talk about my childhood. Yeah. And then I didn't want to I didn't want to admit it. In my head, at the time, half urban and half grandma Coke was a gentleman. No, Richie, Richie. It's interrupt you. You can't imagine how many people I've seen who went into psychoanalysis to do to get better to avoid addressing the alcohol. In other words, anything but stop drinking, right? That's sort of the way the alcoholic brain works. And so literally somebody I'll get people there three years into psychoanalysis. They have a pristine understanding of their childhood drinking like a motherfuck. So that's the common. It's a humor of addiction. It's the funniest damn disease. I mean, it's tragic, but it's also terribly terribly funny. And so there you are at the psychiatrist's office and they suggest a little something something. No way you did that. So what happened next? I didn't want to hear about that. And then at the time I was in a gang, I was still in cocaine, and I was telling the Viagra, you know, when I was working as a construction worker at the time. Wait a minute. Wait, wait, Richie, Richie, hold on. Richie, hold on. So you did a lot of acting, right? Were you unable to do that? Because of the addiction or what happened that way. I only became an actor when I was 30. This is all before it. I see. I see. Yeah, yeah. So I was 28 when I got sober. Got it. And so I was in this Asian gang. I didn't even realize that was funny until I met John. He was like, you were in an Asian guy? Yeah. But you're not angry. I'm from Australia. I lived in Australia. That's Asian enough. So he asked me why and basically the reason was they had the best cocaine, you know? And it was indecision going some of the Coke and without being able to go into it here. So somebody hurt somebody I cared about and I decided this guy was going to have to be whacked and you know I talked to a few people about having this guy killed. I asked my gang and they said they wouldn't kill somebody who hadn't messed us over the business.

"Everybody, welcome to the doctor podcast. We appreciate you all being here and supporting it. We do appreciate it. Also with love a little love over Dr. Drew after dark and get that at your mom's house also, doctor dot com. I do believe the corolla faithful and the Doctor Who podcast faithful would like that part as well. It's sort of a reincarnation or an incarnation of loveline, but not mister parole, and we have that of a drew, of course, as well. Do check it all out, and doctor TV for the streaming shows. Today I've Richie Stevens and John Al shuter, Richie's book, the gangster's guide to sobriety, my life in 12 step available now on Amazon. He collaborated with John on this and I'm hearing rumors of some maybe some media sort of projects afoot. You can follow Richie at Richie actor or IC IE actor one word. And listen, who should I speak to first here? Welcome, gentlemen. You have to decide, drew. Clearly, it's John first, rich. He's sorry about that. I figured whoever came through, thought it might be John. So John, you tell me, how did you hook up with Richie? Well, interesting because I got a blind email from Richie. I didn't know him. Knew nothing about him. And I always say this, my lawyer is very adamant. Do not ever open a blind email because you will be sued. And being who I am, I opened it, and I started reading it, and there was something interesting. Look, a lot of this whole concept, I'm not, I'm not a mystical guy, but I don't know why I opened it. And I don't know why I read it. And I don't really know why I ended up the next day at Starbucks in Sherman's talking to Richie, but the interesting thing about the email was that he wasn't pushing himself. He was pushing a friend's project and I thought, okay, well, so I got together, met with him, and he was telling me all about his friends, project showed it to me. It wasn't for me, but then while we were talking, Richie just was, I'd hear these little bits of information about, oh, I had to leave Ireland to go to America and I was like, well, why? Well, because the drugs are shined in Ireland, I had to go with the drugs are good. Of course. And of course, you gotta think like a drug addict job. You don't know how to do that yet. Well, it's all about the drugs, my friend. You go where the drugs are. The street, Ireland, wherever you can go. If it's better, cheaper, go. So we have the homeless in California. We allow it here. You can steal the support it. No one bothers you. Ready supply. We're coming. And so from that point on, it was just Richie started telling, not telling. He had written written out his life story and it was really compelling. We couldn't quite sell it, but David and I were like, this guy's life is amazing. And then had this epiphany, I'll just say where it's such a sprawl in story because Richie was in Ireland. San Francisco. He's an actor in LA, Australia, and I remember one time just going Richie, you're sober, he goes, yeah, 12 steps. He goes, absolutely. You know what? Let's just take your sprawling life and get a handle on it by telling it in 12 steps. Each chapter is a step in your sobriety that allows us to go to the past, but also lead people through how you made it to the other side. Interesting. Okay, Richie, enough of this producer guy talking. Let's hear what you're storing. What is your story? Thanks for thanks for having us on. You know, I used to watch your show before I got sober. I remember you had this celebrity rehab. Yeah. I used to watch that. I think about a year or two before I got sober at the time, Australia doing about a quarter out to Coke a week. Good times. And I really didn't think I had didn't think I had a problem, but I used to watch this show and I used to think these foods can handle this stuff. Yeah. And I was so far gone that I was watching these other addicts on the show who were trying to get sober and I didn't put it together that I might have a problem, you know? But maybe. Well, it was always our hope, but denial is an incredibly powerful phenomenon. I actually, it's so powerful just how denial works. I really think it has a biological basis to it. Because it's almost delusional, right? I mean, you're looking right at yourself on the screen there, you know, somebody with a cocaine problem that I'm treating and you think, oh, I wouldn't ask all you can't handle it. It's not like me. And the most extreme example that people are here this podcast probably have heard me tell the story before, but my nurse and I would go in the room always, you know, I was 20 years working in drug treatment. And I would always bring my chargers in with me and we were just amused ourselves by asking the first question. Why are you here? Why today? What's motivating? Because we're interested in their motivation. We want to meet them where they are and understand it. But the stories would crack us up so much because the patient would sit up in bed and go, you don't know how hard it is. I'm sick and tired of this. We're living like this is impossible. I decided it's time. It's for me. I'm going to do this. I literally opened the chart. And there's a picture of him in chains in court being sent directly to our hospital. Did the judge have anything to do with it? Oh yeah, you have the judge. Yeah, yeah, there was that moment in court. You know, he sent me here, but that's not why I'm here. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. Like literally doesn't think about the actual brought in chains to the hospital and that's not that they can't put that together is what maybe brought them in. Anyway, so go ahead. You finally, what was your bottom? What happened? I had a series of bottoms over a course of a few years, but of course, the very last thing that brought me to the end, I had just got back from Australia and I figured America was the problem. So I went to Australia for a little while. Australia didn't work for me either because it wasn't sober miss day even out there. Wait, hold on, slow down, Richie. I mean, there was cocaine and alcohol in Australia. What? Are you kidding?

"I was like, fuck, he's right. I might as well get it. Yeah, I was like, fuck, I'm already dealing them for free. You might as well, and it made sense and Tom was smart, so I was like, okay. And then I just played the fall just like that. I became an ecstasy dealer because I ended up getting them for my Friends. And then Tom was started training me, how to do it. Say if you're a parent out there and you're wondering, how does your kid get involved in drugs? Like, someone has to show them. At least the ins and outs of how to do it, I get like bags of a hundred and he'd tell me how much to charge and not to give people credit and all the ins and outs of it. How to watch out for the cops, all this kind of stuff, and just like that, it just seemed to happen in a short period of time. I was supplying the whole college with. You know? Yeah, all of your dealing over the years, though, through San Francisco seems to be purely motivated on your part just to have a little extra cash and to be able to have an infinite supply for yourself, right? You weren't trying to be some kind of gangster kingpin in terms of dealing. You just wanted to make sure that you always had access to the drugs that you wanted. Pretty much, especially at the beginning, but then later, I started, it started to get way more serious in terms of doing bigger things and but at the beginning, that's all it was. But the problem was, so at the beginning of ecstasy was great, there wasn't even much of a calm down. You'd be awake all night and to calm down wasn't too bad at the beginning, but what happens when you're doing ecstasy probably the same as everything. The more of a you do, the more of it you need to do. So like one or two pills used to do me for a night at the beginning. And then later, I wouldn't even come up unless I double dropped. And in Ireland or cheap, back then, there were about ten pounds a piece for one pill and I was getting them for three or four pounds apiece. In bulk. So when they're cheaply available and when they're not working as good, you just end up just taking more and more and more. And that's what happened to me. The tolerance went up. But then they come down. You get the condom. Yeah, the highs were very, very high and the lows were really, really low. And, you know, I started this girl who will call her tab, but I was madly an over like, before I started doing ecstasy. I don't think I could even experience the emotion of love. I was like, really, really closed off and stuff like that, but when I started doing ecstasy, it was like, you know, I think it did something to my personality that wasn't there before. And I was madly in love with this chick and we were going out for a while and she would always end up getting me into fights with people. I remember one time I was standing at her house one night her bedroom was on the second floor. And I was selling to sleep in bed. I'd say it was about 1 o'clock in the morning. And I wake up and she screamed. And Richie, Richie Richie. I fucking wake up, right? And the window is right beside the bed. And it's up on the second floor. It was a fucking man at the window. And she was screaming. And Reggie Reggie, I was like, this guy was trying to get into the house and it was a wooden window that opens out and tell you, I opened the window and I beat fucking shit out of him with the window. I beat the crap out of him with the window. And he didn't fall off the roof, but he got down and ran away. And then I woke up and I saw tabitha and she had her boobs, I was like, you know? And then I kind of realized she must have been flashing the dude outside the window while I was asleep, and the guy fucking climbed up on the roof to try and get into bed with her. And I get woken up, but I've beaten this guy with a fucking window. Second floor. I mean, if he had fallen and cracked his head. And then the next day, this would only happen in Ireland. This would never happen in America. The next day I'm sitting in the living room with her and her roommate, and the doorbell rings, and it's the guy from last night. And I looked out the window and I saw him, and the poor guy, I gave him a bad old beaten with the window, like I probably had about 20 times with his face was all swollen and caught. But I thought he was calling back to get me. So I grabbed a poker out of the fireplace. And I came out like, but she answered the door, but the guy just came to apologize. I guess he's sobered up and realized what happened. This would only happen in Ireland. But the guy came to a LA in America, you know, but the dude had come back to apologize. And she answered the door and she saw his face and I am behind her with the poker. I was going to fight him with the poker because I didn't know what was happening. And she was trying to invite him in for a cup of tea because she felt bad. All he wanted to do was apologize and hope that she wasn't going to call the police, you know? Well, now I know why John and Dave want to make a TV show out of this because think about the book and these stories as sort of horrid and awful as some of this stuff is. Like there's this undercurrent of hilarity. Like there's a lot of comic relief in all of the dark. Without making excuses for your violent behavior and obviously people were hurt and all of that. I'm imagining in my mind like what that must have looked like. It's very cinematic. Yeah, I don't think that one even made it into the book. But. I think the thing too, to go back to something you said a few minutes ago, you said that you couldn't access that feeling of love until you took ecstasy. And I think it's an important point to make, that you make in the book, which is like, these things work, man. And when you're an addict or an alcoholic, something does get unlocked. It is serving a purpose. And I think in terms of talking openly about the nature of addiction and recovery, it's important to acknowledge that fact. They serve a purpose and in recovery when you look back and kind of regale in these stories to acknowledge like I needed that and actually it did something for me and it worked until obviously it stopped working and then it became very dark and terrible, but there is that piece there that it's important to be honest about that. Yeah, I'll be real about everything. It's obviously some of the stuff is very embarrassing, but if you can't be honest, what's the point? That's the way I see it, but basically anyway was madly in love with this girl and we ended up breaking up and I was pretty pretty down about it and by that stage I was probably doing ecstasy three or four times a week, I was average in 15 or 20 pills in a night so I was like all over the place the head wasn't working right and you know I was feeling really down..

"Ideal to play in the car with the kiddos in the back seat. And without warning, let's do the thing. This is me and Richie Stevens. I'm just super excited to talk to you. It's always cool when I get to have friends on the show and I was thinking back to when we first met and I can't remember the very first time, but it has to have been at least ten years. Maybe 9, at least. Yeah, yeah. So you moved to LA in 2010. And I think it was 2013. 2013. Maybe just under ten years. And I just remember, I've like a vague memory of you just telling insane stories. And I was thinking, this has gotten this gosh full shit. There's no way this stuff is real, you know? Well, the first person to read my original manuscript was the book agents. Well, besides my partners, the original one was like really long. It was like a 105,000 words, 430 pages, and they read it twice and they were like, this is crazy. It can't be true, but there's so much detail in it. It could be true. And then they were like, did this really happen, you know? This is great, but how do we sell this? Because it's just like a crazy. It's like one insane story after the next. So what was the decision to cut it down to be such a relatively small book? Well, so we rewrote the book, like my original book was just all my experiences written down, and then I partnered up with John and Dave, because they want to make a TV show out of it. But they were like, it's not really accessible, so we need to reformat it somehow, so it's relatable to people, because most people don't know who I am. So why do you care about this guy? But so I got sober using the 12 steps by going to meetings. And they were like, why don't we format it like how you got sober through the 12 steps and each chapter will be thematically written around a step. Right. So each chapter is a step with your own kind of like spin on the subtitle for that step. The guys wrote a forward and then the first chapter is you breezing through the whole story from like 10,000 feet. So you get a sense of just how crazy your life has been. And then each chapter takes you through the steps and uses stories from your past to illustrate how you work the stuff, which I thought was a really cool kind of narrative technique. Yeah, exactly. And I guess it's more relatable for people. That's not too long. It's under 200 pages. It's a good yarn, dude. And nobody loves a good addiction recovery yarn more than this guy. Well done, my friend. And it's exciting that it's going to be out in the world. And such an amazing arc given where you came from to where you are now. And I thought it would be cool to just format this conversation around what we know best, which is what it was like, what happened and what it's like now. We can kind of do it like a meeting. So take us back and paint the crazy picture of growing up in this small town in Ireland and how it kind of all went insane. Yeah, so I'm born and raised in Ireland that came to America in my early 20s and where I'm from. It's like middle of nowhere, you know, countryside and when I was a kid, I was like, I was really shy and quiet, you know, I didn't have a lot of self confidence and, you know, where I grew up was like a tough place, you know? Like if you compare it to America, like when I was growing up, man where I'm from, don't drink cocktails, you know? Men don't drink cocktails, men don't really use umbrellas. There's a lot in Ireland and you might see like a doctor or a teacher maybe carried an umbrella, but it's pissing rain all the time, everybody's just standing out in it. Yeah, I started smoking when I was like a teenager. And cigarettes were a bit harsh on my throat. So I saw these menthols, so I started smoking menthols at the start, you know? And somebody saw me smoking menthols and this is a you fucking pregnant. That's the kind of spot it was growing up. So the town is called cabin. How do you pronounce it? The Calvin. And what's interesting about that, I actually went to Google Maps and pulled down pictures because I wanted to get a visual sense of what that place was like. And not a lot going on. A lot of pictures of a church. It's kind of it, but you grew up close to the border of Northern Ireland. So you have this spillover of protestants, right? So you have the Protestant Catholic kind of tension that was going on that I'm sure kind of underscored just the whole vibe of growing up there. Yeah, so where I grew up is at the border, so the border of Northern Ireland, there was a lot of like, I guess, terrorists around there, you know, because it's at the border. And I'm Catholic. I was raised Catholic, but my dad was a Protestant. So I have a Protestant name. Like in Ireland, if you're a Catholic, you'll have a name like O'Reilly or McDonald or something like that, but if you're Protestant, you have like a British sound in the name. So my name is Richie Stevens. So I found like a Protestant and then I was sent to a Catholic school and was in a whole lot of fun as you can imagine. Like in Ireland maybe when I was growing up where I'm from, maybe 90% of people were Catholic, 10% were protestants. But my mother was devout, Catholic. So we were all sent to Catholic schools, but I hated it. You know, it wasn't. It wasn't easy. A lot of people kind of romanticize the IRA, the terrorist group over there. You know, I got dogs, abuse in the school because, you know, right, even though you were in Catholic school and were raised Catholic, you have this Protestant last name. It puts like a target on your back. Exactly. Yeah, and I was I used to let myself get pushed around and I used to always worry about things. It was like I was very, very self conscious all the time. Like where I'm from, it's really important to play football, Gaelic football. And that's all really people care about in the area. So it's like, if you go to a bar with your parents and you meet somebody, the first thing this is to dismantle and play a football. And you could be a fucking brain sergeant. And if you didn't play football, you were no good. Yeah. So I played football, but I was no good at it. I had zero talent for no matter how hard I tried, but it's kind of like, if you didn't tog out, those what they call it, like just show up, you were no good, so I played football, but it was never any good at it. Every time I would play a game, if I get the ball, I'd be so self conscious I wouldn't even know what to do. And I would just get nailed all the time, but the players and I tried to fit in as best as I could, but what really did it for me was the drinking. You know, I started off. I went to a concert one time. Like, I was about 14 or 15. I went to this concert over in the West Coast. It was Beastie Boys, garbage, all these kind of bonds, and a girl on the bus on the way home, gave me a beer to see if I wanted to drink..

Mike Gallagher Celebrates Early Birthday in Las Vegas
"But after the long weekend I had in Las Vegas, Las Vegas to sort of celebrate my birthday with some dear Friends of mine. A little early birthday by a couple of days. And let's not talk about my birthday. I hate my birthday. I hate birthdays in general. I get in trouble because I forget my Friends. I forget my family. To me, I remember years ago, Eric Hansen, who's been my loyal operations manager for over two decades, used to take his birthday off. And I thought that was the craziest thing how anybody would take a day off for their birthday as an adult. Now if you're 14, I don't know, but people take birthdays very seriously. I dread them because it is a reminder of my grim march to the grave. I don't feel almost 62. Some days I feel 80, some days I feel 29. So good friends of mine, peg and Joey Hudson said, let's go to Vegas. We'll see Lionel Richie. And while we're there, let's carry Underwood. She was great Friday night, Lionel Richie, not so much because he canceled as we showed up to see his performance, which is something that would have been like a bucket list. Can you imagine seeing Lionel Richie in concert? He had a bad back. I literally said to the guy blocking the entrance when being told that Lionel Richie had a bad back, what? He can't sing with a bad back. What's in his back four to sing? I did shows in a hurt with a hernia. I did radio shows in my bed. I didn't say all that to him, but you know me. I'm selfish, and I'm impatient.

The lady told me as soon as they ship it in in the morning, it's gone by the end of the day. I would t-shirts, baseball caps, Trump golf balls, Trump paperweights, and people, you know, I'm sorry. Americans love the guy. And Americans are ready for a return to normalcy. Not just politically, but I've got to address this. I got to address how different Vegas is from so many other places, New Yorkers would faint. At how people in Las Vegas behave.

Sarah Silverman Apologizes to Paris Hilton for Prison Jokes
"Sarah Silverman is now apologizing on her podcast because of what Paris Hilton said in her podcast that bothered her when Sarah Silverman took her apart at a roast I think in 2007 and whatever Paris Hilton was going to jail the next morning. The night before she went to a roast. And Sarah Silverman was her usual typical brilliant self. And now it's come to her attention that Paris Hilton wasn't happy with what was said. When Paris Hilton was at her absolute worst when she was doing things that needed to be stopped when she was doing embarrassing things and making sex tapes that were very embarrassing to her and her family and she was being caught with drugs on her and drinking and those are the days where she stepped out of a limousine or Range Rover. Showing the Lindsay Lohan Nicole Richie, Britney Spears days, the bad girl. So Sarah, it was come to come to her attention at Paris was upset. And she did her apology thing. She said that the night after it happened, she didn't know Paris is even going to be at the rose. And she didn't know Paris was going to jail the next day. So when she saw her there, she thought, oh my God, I can really go crazy on this. And like a great comic she did. And I forget what she said. I didn't go back to check, but I know that Sarah doesn't hold back. Paris Hilton was hurt. When she found out, she was hurt. She sent her a note and apologized for several days later. Apparently that note never got to Paris. So Sarah felt like, you know what? Let me say I'm sorry. And I really appreciate what she said. Even though Paris Hilton has to look back and apologize about some of her shit. Because then you just can't be a hypocrite, but I like what Sarah said. One of my patrons sent me that bit of Sarah on her podcast, apologize. Again, I'm not, I'm okay with it. I'm okay with it. Listen, if you go back and think what you said really hurt someone's feelings, I think it's admirable to

And fox goes, you know, I'm so used to being fucked all over in relationships. So I keep waiting for him to disappoint me because he makes very grandiose promises.

"richie" Discussed on The Skinny Confidential Him And Her Podcast
"How nick ritchie actually saved the internet. This is the skinny confidential him in her. I don't mean to brag. But i've been on the dirty five times like actually posted. She's she's been featured feet away. Adulation i have been featured. I kind of feel like it's claim to fame. Whoa after the first couple of times it's kind of like people really care about you. I mean it wasn't like stacey. Cole who have you know who i'm talking about yes. She rocks check. But i do feel like five. Times is pretty good. Are you friends with stacy. Now i feel like i know through the dirty dirty. You built the dirty before all of this. We're just talking about it. Go back to how you decided to start the dirty hookah. So it's crazy because it wasn't anything it kinda was like a joke between a couple of buddies of mine in scottsdale and Couple you know. Ben quayle was out there. He was dan quayle sun and we'd go drinking and whatever and i told my k. Man like i wanna start this site scott still as you know. I called it the dubai of america. It was like the hidden gem all these hot chicks all these thirty k. Millionaires so we would always come up with like tag lines and his name was brock landers. He wanted to go by brock. Landers my name was nick ritchie. 'cause i was going off like at that time i'm looking at all the different sides. Tmz impress hilton. Were really just the only kind of things that were blowing up so like okay. Well hey he still pairs. Let me dude. Nick nicole richie thing. The nikki thing. So i chose nick ritchie kaz straight. And like she's a little bit more you know put together peirce more party girl. I was more like business. So i thought it was a good ying and yang. Even though he wasn't really a fan of of stealing his thunder a little bit but then brock landers was the political sphere in this thing. Ben quayle are blowing up. So he's like he's out. So when i started this thing in scottsdale it was literally like. Hey let's find the cool kids in the town and make my own civilian 'paparazzi because at this time he understand like camera phones just started while you're was exactly 'cause And the reason i am asking i was at you and i think i remember the dirty coming out while i was in two thousand six two thousand five two thousand six and it only started in scottsdale and knew about it and and like we knew us in arizona new about the dirty like right when you launched so within i would say a year year and a half you know i was in the spotlight but no one knew who i was because i never my identity was out there. I was like batman. So i would do these interviews. I would have reporters sit outside the room i would do. You know the full blacked out face. And i would. I would have an english accent. Like i would literally just pretend i was someone else. And the crazy part was you would go out and scottsdale and people like oh nick ritchie here and i'd be like sitting in line like waiting cover and like people are pointing up to the like the bottle service table to. That's nick now mike all. That's so cool. Let me shake his hand. I'm like shaking some random..

"Our official esther fan of gaby's morning news. Richie and papillion richie. How are you good morning. Guys yes congratulations for making all the same the most overrated player in the history of baseball in cleveland and detroit and you'll never hear them and good jobs dallas last night till fourteen all star games. Five world series. Stop stop stop it or stockings. People are voting on the stand. People put one hundred thousand dollars with that line of kim around him. You would have got hit okay. Why aren't they all forget in the hall of fame that they're all going in the hall of fame. You know that whole yankee. They bought that whole team. Come on course talk football. That's the one who love. This guy is my son. Plays more him all right. He owns the team. My son plays for your yeah. That's okay you don't like them. Jeeter owns the marlins. Well he doesn't really memorial is. He's the face of the program ritchie. Let's talk about the thoughts on this game for him. I would like to see us do it again like we did last week. It was supposed to states turnovers time. I think we had one penalty. You know just like that bill for two in a row. Run the ball. Stop the run. Let's just play a good solid game. They got new coaching staff against that scares me. You know because who knows what they can come out with but counselor playmakers rotate people. Because it's going to be really hot. We still got the advantage of size strength and depth again with that heat so this is a game that you want to build on get to it around so give yourself a couple of weeks for a week. We'll well yeah. I know what's coming up. I'm going to worry about worry about that next friday. This is so great. And i think this is a good tuneup for oklahoma in this way. you know it's a baby. Fordham is not fordham is not. it's it's borderline division three program. That's number one. Buffalo has guys are gonna play in the nfl And running backs pretty good now. He's he's good and I look. I don't know how good they're all. He's good now. This is not adrian peterson. This is not mike rosiere. But this guy's pretty good he could play for us. You can play for about anybody in the big mar. Yes yes kevin marks not that great vigo's for one hundred fifty five yards against us on saturday when he goes say next friday. We'll see okay. We'll talk about that next. That ain't happening respectfully allow respect dominate that offensive line. Apparently that right now maybe. It's not a very great team. Come on you say that every week before nebraska falling down the stairs you say that about illinois nebraska. I remember when you said before indiana. You said this is a must win. No problem and indiana comes in here and kick our butts. So i mean just a little respect rightey. Please write last week right. The prediction of a win over fordham was really out on a limb and come out a little respect. They're pretty good okay. It's it's it's a step up. I understand that. But you know. I got about two three playmakers. They got a nice linebacker. Spencer that running backs decent. Their quarterback is a veteran. That's it it's not gonna play last wagner. What is that. That's like one of those colleges on tv degree for meteorology. Become on the whole thing with me. I think this is a better tuneup for oklahoma than about anybody. Nebraska could play at this stage of the season because they are going to say they're going to see some guys that can make some place so if the huskers play well tomorrow a complete game on both sides of the ball. I thought second half against Fordham was pretty solid Maybe four to more down but it was pretty good defensively. This is a better tuneup for ou than a lot of games nebraska could play. I think it'll be a low scoring game tune up next week. We'll talk about oklahoma and again. They still great last week. Switch remember that. Maybe they're not as good as everybody thinks they are. We'll see so. I appreciate the shout out to derek jeter and the prediction you jim i i do. Love the guy. Thanks watching derek. Jeter play official fan every friday morning..
