Episode #66 - UNBEATABLE w/Dan Duvall
Ooooooh it's a GOOD one this week. Yes yes, y'all. We got Dan Duvall.
Pictured: Comedian, Writer, Filmmaker, Podcaster Network Director (Comedy Here Often), Dog Lover & All Around Beloved Pal, Dan Duvall
Dan came in hot from getting his latest tattoo, the question "What's your dog's name?" in typewriter font, pictured below and the episode was off to the races.
From there, Dan and Katie-Ellen wax nostalgic about their times as various levels of degenerate on the streets of Victoria, B.C. (along with Katie's love of Coat Check). If you wondered what that period of time looked like, know that basically we all looked more or less like this:
Bless and keep The Moffatts.
Below is a link to listen to the VOCAL ONLY track of Lil John's "Okay". Amitai explained it's glory on the pod, but it really is something to experience.
Dan generously and articulately shares about his experience in recovery for drugs and alcohol.
"I didn't know who I was as person, so I didn't know how to act. So I was constantly trying to act in a certain way, rather than just being."
Summed up another way, Dan quotes the song I Wanna Get Better by The Bleechers:
"I didn't know I was broken until I wanted to change" - The Bleechers
Dan opens up about how his previously OFF MAIN behaviour was being himself. Something he was even OFF MAIN about to himself. (Deeply relatable). He shares how he's spent the last four years learning to be vulnerable.
"It's incredibly freeing and no longer scary. I sometimes have to remind myself in little moments that it's not scary. But it's the most beautiful gift I've ever received in my whole life. It's absolutely amazing to be vulnerable."
Katie asks Dan to share on his experience in Codependency 12-Step and damn if he doesn't rock both host's worlds. From the Co-Dependents Anonymous World website:
What is codependence?
Somewhere along the line, we learned to doubt our perception, discount our feelings, and overlook our needs. We looked to others to tell us what to think, feel, and behave. Other people supplied us with information about who we were and should be. It became more important to be compliant or avoidant rather than to be authentic, and we adopted rigid beliefs about what “should be.” We believed that if we could just “get it right,” things would be okay. When we “got it wrong,” our sense of security and self-worth evaporated.
If you're curious about patterns of codependent behaviour and co-dependent recovery, check out more information at https://coda.org/.
Here's a couple more recovery words of wisdom Dan shared that will definitely stick with us:
"Guilt is 'I'm a good person who did a something wrong.' Shame is 'I'm a bad person.'"
"Humility is not thinking less of yourself. It's thinking of yourself less."
Ohhhh, ever the dreamboat Dan comes armed with some hot horny fors.
