  1. I heard Julia Christine’s story live, and it was so great to hear it again. Anyone who has ever had a relationship with an addict would benefit from listening to this story. Thank you Julie for sharing this.

  2. Great episode! Ryan, I also live in Korea and was thrilled to see an expat in Korea on a Risk Show. I tried looking for “True Stories Busan” on Google and Facebook but could not find anything! Can anyone point me in the right direction? I would love to get involved!

  3. Hey Joseph! The Next TrueBu will be in October! I will be posting the call for stories soon, the theme for this one is NDA, which means you can tell whatever extremely personal, intimate or incriminating story you want and every attendee will have to sign a non-disclosure agreement that says it won’t leave the room. The details will be online soon, but you can message me at ryan at ryanestrada dot com if you want to get an e-mail when the call for stories goes live!

  4. I’m so glad to hear Julia’s and Ryan’s stories. At the Detroit show the last performer was amazing and incredibly heartbreaking. I hope his is posted soon!
