If you’ve ever worked with veteran public radio host and reporter John Sepulvado, it might not surprise you to learn that he’s an alcoholic. It may, however, surprise you to learn just how bad things got when he hit bottom before entering rehab last year. On this week’s show, Sepulvado tells his story with brutal frankness and more than a little gallows humor. It does have a happy ending; he’s now 20 months clean and the new host of “The California Report” from KQED.
Also on the show, host Adam Ragusea contemplates the various, imperfect metrics for gauging the success of a podcast. And we want your help in naming The Pub’s signature segment.
