Episode Details: We are celebrating this 100th milestone episode with an extra special guest, Cheryl Burke. She is an American dancer and television host and is fondly revered by many for being a professional competitor on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars (now streaming on Disney+). Not only was she the first female professional to win the show, but she was also the first professional to win twice, win twice consecutively, and has participated in 26 seasons! Among her most admirable qualities is how she uses her platform to educate, break stigma, and shine a light on the pathway to hope for those who may be struggling by speaking out about mental health, addiction, and recovery!
In this episode, Patrick has a candid and meaningful conversation with Cheryl about her family of origin, cultural dissonance, adulting as a child, the path to becoming a professional dancer, work ethic, perseverance, trauma, dealing with stardom/celebrity status at a young age, addiction, mental health struggles, recovery, and divorce.
