Bill W and Alcoholics Anonymous

I greatly enjoyed being on KQED Forum the other day with Dan Carracino in a program about Bill W. and Alcoholics Anonymous. Dan and his friend Kevin Hanlon have created a documentary about Bill W. that is getting rave reviews and is now playing in select cities.

It was a privilege to feel less like a guest than a member of the audience with the best seat in the house. Dan exhibits the rare combination of being extraordinarily knowledgeable yet completely unpretentious in presenting what he knows. I could have listened to him talk for much longer time than we had, and I suspect the rest of the audience felt the same way.

Here is the radio show, hosted by Scott Shafer:

And here is the trailer to the movie.
