On this episode of Badass, we discuss the devastating fallout of the opioid epidemic. We are speaking with Lindsey Maxwell. She is sharing with us the story of her husband's fatal overdose, and also who he was in life. A loving husband, a great father. We explore how addiction changes the trajectory of a life full of promise. We hold up Lindsey's courage in the face of these terrible circumstances. She has navigated grief and being a single mom to 4 young children with grace and wisdom. She is a badass.
