Dr. Drew Sees Parallels Between Homelessness and Celebrity Status

1 min read

Dr. Drew Pinsky’s 2008 book, The Mirror Effect, was an insightful analysis of celebrity culture when originally published. Looking back, it’s also turned out to be a prescient guide to the social media landscape that’s emerged over the past decade. In this episode of Dad Saves America, we discuss social media, narcissism, substance abuse, therapy, and Dr. Drew’s wide-reaching career.

Dr. Drew is a practicing doctor of internal medicine as well as an addiction specialist and has become known for hosting KROQ’s Loveline for over 30 years, starring in VH1’s Celebrity Rehab, and hosting a number of daytime shows. Dr. Drew recently wrote a teen guide on consent that deals with identity and relationships that he co-authored with his daughter Paulina Pinsky called It Doesn’t Have To Be Awkward.

Dr. Drew’s currently hosts Dr. Drew After Dark, produced by Tom Segura and Christina Pazsitzky’s YMH Studios, hosts Ask Dr. Drew, and co-hosts The Adam and Drew Show with Adam Carolla.
