Joe & Charlie

Last night I went to a meeting that uses the Joe & Charlie tapes as the meeting format. It's a blast. If you have not heard them, Joe and Charlie are two old and sort of old-timey AA speakers who have given workshops on The Big Book and Working the Steps. They are quite an act and they are also wise and funny.

In the local meeting we listen to a CD of these guys as they walk listeners through sections of the Big Book and point out, well, how it works. Along with lots of historical perspective, early days anecdotes and wisdom for daily living they explain things like how the 10th step is a surprising mixture of steps four, three, seven, eight and eleven--done each day.

If you are looking for a refreshing change or something great for the car (especially if driving to or from family get togethers) buy or borrow a set of the Joe & Charlie workshop CD's. You'll see the steps differently.
