Coach Mike Celebrates 19 Years Sober


In this episode of Always Evolving, Coach Mike Bayer celebrates 19-years sober. In this very personal show, he invites his divorced mom and dad to join him even though they have only spoken to one another twice in 20 years. Mike explains that he has never had this conversation about his addiction with both of his parents and how important it is to him to hear their perspective about what happened. Mike’s parents, Aina and Ron Bayer, reveal what they did and didn’t know about his drug use, their honest reaction to his coming out, the mistakes they feel they made, and their surprise and pride about the demons Mike has conquered and the man that he’s become.
