Substance Abuse Among Developers This being a holiday week the guys chose to air a special episode on substance abuse. This was originally part of the Mental Health episode but BJ went "Full Med Student" on the notes and produced a few shows.

In this episode Will and BJ discuss some of the signs and symptoms of substance abuse as well as what to do if you suspect you or someone you know may need help.
