Inspiring, Helpful, & Fun Podcast About Life In Recovery. The 217 Recovery Podcast was started in April of 2019 by Corey Winfield, who had just graduated from a treatment program in Northern Michigan. Corey felt his life needed purpose and helping others has always left him feeling rewarded. Having a twenty-year career as a Radio Personality, a podcast only made sense. At first, Corey was fearful of failure and that people would criticize him for being in early recovery. Corey was used to talking about his life on the radio, just not usually the painful embarrassing parts, but he got the courage to put his recovery in the spotlight, and start a podcast about life in early recovery. Sure the podcast talks about recovery, but it also deals with everyday life and how it's good to laugh. Listen to Corey Winfield as he shares his life and personality with the world, on the 217 Recovery Podcast.
