Bottoms Up: Podcast TWO - Barbour / Serle

Podcast TWO: 

We are delighted to announce the next in our series of podcasts written by gay and bisexual men who have had challenging experiences with alcohol during their life. By creating the podcasts we hope that listeners, who also may have issues with alcohol, will be able to relate to the events and experiences that the writers have been through. Alcohol affects many of us in different ways, but we are not alone. Our common struggles can connect us and provide hope to overcome difficult experiences.  

This podcast contains a reading of David Barbour’s poem, Nature’s Cruel Trick and Fraser Serle’s untitled short story.
