Russell Brand's new book: 'Recovery'

Russell Brand's new book: Recovery
This is actually Russell. Thanks for giving me your personal email address - I hate getting spammy-feeling emails. It's like someone putting their hand down the back of my trunks. "Unsubscribe"! But this is me and I want you to know I've written this book about addiction - not just to drink and drugs but to everything. My idea is that we are living in an age of addiction, that we have been taught to believe that consuming - anything from hair gel to heroin - can somehow make us better. 
This book is in a way my life's work and I feel proud of it and hopeful about it.
So yeah. This book could be useful to anyone who is affected by addiction, anywhere on the scale
Thanks for your email address. ❤



This is the age of addiction. Obvious addictions like drugs and alcohol, right through to socially acceptable chemicals such as caffeine and, all the way to invisible and often endorsed addictions like work, stress, bad relationships and
digital media.

We are facing an epidemic so all-encompassing that many of us don’t even realise we are in its grasp.
Recovery is a self-help book for everyone that will change your life. Offering a definitive guide to addiction from someone who has struggled with heroin, alcohol, sex, fame, food and staring at their phone, as if the answer is going to come from there… This important new book will help anyone who is an addict (or loves an addict) move towards recovery.

With a powerful mix of honesty, humour and compassion, Russell Brand tells his intimate yet universal story and shares the practical advice and wisdom he has been taught through his fourteen and a half years of recovery. He speaks to those suffering along the full spectrum of addiction― from serious, life-threatening misuse of substances, to the subtler habits we use to hold our lives together, like food, technology or unhealthy relationships.

Russell understands that addiction is amorphous and migratory. This book asks and addresses; ‘What pain is your addiction masking? Why are you running―into the wrong job, the wrong life, the wrong relationship?’ and most importantly ‘When are you going to recover the person you were born to be?’

Within the book Russell explores how the process of staying clean and connected is a daily process. He shares the practical toolkit that he uses himself, and offers a recovery plan to anyone who believes their life could be better.

Recovery is published on 21 September.

New Biog

Here's my draft biog for the new frontier!

Maverick broadcaster, writer and evangelist, I'm interested and invested in the transformational power of on-line and real life technology for positive change.

It seems we live in polar times, where roads to both destruction and enlightenment lay ahead of humanity. I'm committed to the latter, and through various endeavours over the last 25 years - both professionally and personally - I’ve stoked my dream of a fairer, saner and more joyful world.

Now, with the Barefoot Broadcast that I first created in 2010, I’m back with a daily radio show that seeks to transform the very way we communicate with each other.

On the ‘transformation station’, I believe true understanding and authentic listening are the way forward to an elevated and more consciouness reality for humankind.

Be heard, try listening, right here:

My Anchor podcast is live!

Thanks to my switched-on friend Sue Haswell, I'm now and Anchor-man (don't!)

This platform not only got me internet broadcasting within minutes, lo and behold, a day later and I'm now a podcaster on Apple Music (-:

The obvious upside is very immediate and very sociable broadcasting; downside seems to be a five-minute limit to shows.

However, it's a very exciting development for radio as we know it and I'm looking forward to working with Anchor and being a sneezer for them in UK and Europe...

Subject: Your Anchor podcast is live!

Hey there,

Your podcast, The Barefoot Broadcast , is now available in Apple Podcasts.

Here’s how to locate and share the link to your podcast:

  1. Open the Anchor app. (If you tap that link on your phone we’ll take you right there.)
  2. Go to your profile; it’s the last tab in the navigation bar.
  3. Switch to the "Episodes" tab and tap the share button next to your podcast information. It looks like this, depending on whether you’re on iOS or Android:

We’ll let you know as it becomes available in more places.

Remember, any episodes you create in Anchor will automatically be synced as episodes for this podcast.

Other quick podcast tips:

  • You can create episodes out of any segment from your station in Anchor, except other people’s content (like songs, or segments from other stations). Call-ins you receive can be added to episodes.
  • Segments in your station that expire without being added to an episode will not be added to your podcast.
  • You can edit your cover art, podcast name, description, or category at any time. From your profile in the Anchor app, tap the “Episodes” tab and then tap the gear next to your podcast information.
