#14 Talking about Netflix Maid
Play • 36 min

The popular Netflix series MAID has everyone talking and it has some people angry.  The story portrays a young likeable, poor, white woman, Alex , a young mother who flees an abusive relationship and takes a job as a maid to provide for her daughter, striving to build a better future.  

MAID touches on a  number of incredibly heavy topics, domestic violence, homelessness, alcoholism, the generational cycle of addiction and the systems that keep people in poverty. It's no easy watch, yet we are all watching it and talking about it. 

In this episode I chat with Celeste Yvonne about what makes this incredible series so good. Drawing from our own experiences, for me living with my husband's alcoholism, for Celeste her fathers alcoholism and her own recovery, we talk about the unspoken conversations of addiction in the family and the generational cycle of addiction.
