June 25th 2012:Living The Twelve Traditions In Today's World with AA historian Michael Fitzpatrick

Anonymity and humility are two cornerstones of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). In an age where "checking into rehab" is synonymous with what to do when a celebrity is behaving badly, how does AA maintain these core values? In today's show, Michael Fitzpatrick will explore what aspects of the Twelve Traditions of AA are holding strong and what has been overlooked or changed since they were formally adopted in 1950. Listeners will learn about what motivated Bill W. to include them in the literature of AA and why it is important to maintain these principles before personalities.
