Bridget sits down with physician and radio host Dr. Drew Pinsky. They reminisce about Love Lines, which Bridget was a huge fan of in her teens, how Dr. Drew wound up on the radio in the first place, what struck him the most about the calls he was receiving, the massive amount of ignorance regarding sex and the human body at the time, the consequences of the sexual revolution, and how people today are less ignorant because they have access to more information but they’re still as confused as ever. The also cover the importance of therapy, the miracles he's seen happen working with addicts, how someone who’s nearly dead can go to thriving, what he's learned about addiction and its treatment, the human propensity to self-destruct, why addicts are great in extreme situations, finding humor in the darkest places, dealing with depression and OCD, the importance of human relationships to how our brains learn and understand things, and the truth about dopamine hits. Listen to Bridget's appearance on The Dr. Drew Podcast.

She doesn’t conduct interviews—she has conversations. Conversations with real people about the real struggle and will remind you that we can laugh in pain and cry in joy but there’s no greater mistake than hiding from it all. By embracing it all, and celebrating it with the stories she’ll bring listeners, she believes that our lowest moments can be the building blocks for our eventual fulfillment.
