In this episode we get to learn a bit about how the podcast is put together as Don and Sam talk shop with Bob S., a Grapevine podcast editor. The three go on to talk about coming into AA, observing others’ growth as they work the program, and the healing and strengthening of relationships as we make Ninth Step amends. There’s a great question from Sarah in the “Ask it Basket”, and in a “Blast from the Past” Bill W. talks about the writing of Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions at the 1953 General Service Conference.

While we provide the podcast at no charge, we do have expenses. Grapevine is the only AA entity that does not accept direct contributions from members, so to support the AA Grapevine Podcast, please subscribe to Grapevine Magazine in print, online, or on the new Grapevine app. You can also provide a subscription to someone in need through our“Carry the Message”program or purchase books or other items
