Our good friends Chris & Kim Duke have just released their newest episode of The Not So Anonymous Alcoholic podcast with the Minnesota legend Mike French. Mike along with his brother Derek, are revered as one of the greatest brotherly duos in blading history and appeared in numerous videos over the years, were sponsored by some of the biggest blading brands within our sport and inspired countless skaters over the years.
Unfortunately, Mike’s path took him away from skating which led him down a dark path of alcohol abuse. But now, Mike is clean and sober with a renewed sense of purpose and he goes into full detail about his miraculous recovery from his personal demons.
This episode is a must see as we can all learn from Mike’s harrowing tale of recovery. We applaud Mike for turning his life around and sharing his tale in hopes that it can guide others in similar situations. So peep the new episode and be sure to send Mike some positive words of encouragement.
Oh and if you were wondering if Mike still skates, than this picture should answer that question…
