Life at 50 with Amy Dresner
In this episode, I talk with Amy Dresner, author, writer, former comedian, and recovery advocate about turning 50, ageism, dating, money, and aging parents.
Amy Dresner is a former comedian, as well as a recovering addict/alcoholic and epic, fuck up. She’s been a writer for the addiction/recovery magazine theFix.com since 2012 and freelanced for Addiction.com, Psychology Today, After Party Chat, Good Men Project, Refinery 29, among others.
Her first book, “My Fair Junkie: A Memoir of Getting Dirty and Staying Clean,” was released by Hachette in 2017 to rave reviews by critics and readers alike. She’s appeared on the television show The Doctors as well as been a guest on Dr. Drew, Don’t Die, Recovering from Reality, Dopey Nation, and many other podcasts and radio shows. She was a speaker at the She Recovers LA Gala in 2018, receiving a standing ovation. Elle magazine compared her memoir “My Fair Junkie” to Carrie Fisher’s 1987 autobiographical novel, “Postcards from the Edge” and Mary Karr’s 2009 “Lit,” calling it “one for the ages.” Her book is currently in development for a TV series.
