Jenn, a delegate to the General Service Conference, talks to Don and Sam about keeping an open mind and accepting the group conscience. Jenn also tells how she never thought drinking was the problem—until she read the big book. Cindy contributes an “Ask it Basket” question; and Brian calls in an old joke from the Ham-on-Wry days of Grapevine.
