132 Our Friend Anna – Intervention

We’re very grateful that Kat is joined this week by our friend Anna to discuss the season five episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 in which Dylan’s substance abuse is confronted with a staged intervention and catastrophic consequences.

This episode features a frank discussion about mental health, addiction, and chemical dependency, and may be difficult for some listeners. The examples discussed in this interview are solely representative of the individuals speaking, and should not be generalized to apply to the vast diversity of lived experiences.
