Sisters Cracking Up

May 27, 2022

Join Sisters Cracking Up, as we interview Gabrielle Glaser on her groundbreaking, bestselling book, "Her Best-Kept Secret: Why Women Drink -- and How They Can Regain Control." If you've ever struggled with alcohol addiction (or if someone you love has) OR if you've ever simply questioned your own relationship with alcohol (pandemic drinking, anyone?), this episode is a must listen.

From how women process alcohol, to how they feel about themselves when they drink, to what makes women's all here in this episode. (HINT: They're all very different from men's experience with booze.)

And if you're a woman considering AA, Glaser's findings and research on women and AA may surprise (shock!) you.

Join sisters Abby Rodman and Julie Howard for an in-depth interview with Gabrielle Glaser on her acclaimed book.

Gabrielle Glaser is the author, most recently, of "American Baby: A Mother, A Child, and the Shadow History of Adoption," which tells the shocking truth about postwar adoption in America through the bittersweet story of one teenager, the son she was forced to relinquish, and their lifelong search to find each other. The New York Times, the Washington Post, and NPR named it a best book of 2021.

 Gabrielle's 2013 book examining women's drinking and the American rehab industry, "Her Best-Kept Secret: Why Women Drink -- and How They Can Regain Control" was a New York Times bestseller.  She has covered the intersection of health, medicine, and culture for The New York Times and many other publications, including The Atlantic, The Washington Post, and Scientific American, and is the mother of three grown daughters.
