Secrets of a Sober Mom

Secrets of a Sober Mum podcast


For all of the moms who have felt chained to their bottles who are suffering in silence as we did.

For the moms who put on a mask every day for those around them. For the moms who are sick and tired of being sick and tired. You are in the right place. Come on in.

Leslie Shapiro, a New York/New Jersey native, and Vanessa Merlini, a Seattle native, hit it off when they met in a recovery meeting at the beginning of the global pandemic in March of 2020.

Leslie’s direct and witty approach, combined with Vanessa’s gentle spirit creates a space for healing, honest conversations, and friendship that everyone can relate to.

Whether you have been sober for 10 minutes, 10 years, or not sober at all, please join us as we get to know each other – literally! We will talk about our recovery journeys and do our part to reduce the shame and stigma associated with being a mom and being an alcoholic/addict. A spectacular life is possible. We promise.
