Episode 224 More Heart Than Scars builds their Rig
Today Brother Boggs gets a chance to catch up with More Heart Than Scars.   Originally the BeastNet team had planned on talking about the Zack Attack race on July 18th 2020 with Joey McGlamory but he had to cancel last minute.  Then Joey suggested we just get everyone on the show from MHTS HQ since Joey was headed down to help build the rig that was donated to More Heart than Scars by Mike Rowe and the team from Returning the Favor.  So instead of talking only about Zack attack, we ended up with Zack Paben, Wendy Jenkins Paben, Erika Bogan, and Joey checking in on Zoom about the build and the race season remaining.  Now, because this was a Zoom episode with 5 people talking, it may be better served to watch the episode here: https://youtu.be/wgziiAdNWDU A couple of the highlights include talking about the Scenic City Mud run and Celtic Warrior Challenge that are both put on by Julie Wolf,  More Heart Than Scars is the official charity recipient of proceeds from Celtic Warrior.

Sober Spartans July, Tatianna
This month Brother Boggs is joined by Tatianna Pugmire, a former drug and alcohol counselor that has worked her own way though things to get sober at age 18. They talk about genetic predisposition and how they both have found more sobriety in their families after getting sober themselves.  Tatianna talks about the struggles of growing up in a small town in New Mexico where gangs were prevalent and how this helped her fuel her addictions until after what was set to be her second DUI before her 19th birthday was dropped and she moved to the PNW to get sober. This is a fun episode where Don and Tatianna talk about all sorts of things including integration with "normies" and still having friends who can drink.  They discuss how OCR has become a new addiction and how 2021 is going to be a huge year.
