Podcast Ep. 27, Guest: Brian Cuban, The Addicted Lawyer
Today on the podcast we have Brian Cuban, author of the book, The Addicted Lawyer: Tales of the Bar, Booze, Blow and Redemption. If Brian’s last name sounds familiar it’s because, yes, he is billionaire Mark Cuban’s brother. But believe me, that’s about the least interesting part of Brian’s story.
Brian and I connected on so many levels: as former lawyers (although Brian did not lose his law license), the madness of alcoholism and drug abuse, body dysmorphic disorder, eating disorders, and then, finally, a newfound peace in the rooms of recovery.
Brian is clean and sober for over 14 years.
So coming up, Brian Cuban. The Addicted Lawyer. On White Collar Week. I hope you will join us. – Jeff

He is graduate of Penn State University and The University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Brian has been in long term recovery from alcohol, cocaine and bulimia since April of 2007.
His first book, Shattered Image: My Triumph Over Body Dysmorphic Disorder, chronicles his first-hand experiences living with, and recovering from, twenty-seven years of eating disorders, and Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD).
Brian’s most recent, best-selling book, The Addicted Lawyer, Tales of The Bar, Booze, Blow, & Redemption is an un-flinching look back at how addiction and other mental health issues destroyed his career as a once successful lawyer and how he and others in the profession redefined their lives in recovery and found redemption.

Brian has appeared on prestigious talks shows such as the Katie Couric Show as well as numerous media outlets around the country. He also writes extensively on these subjects.
