LegAAcyChat

LegAAcyChat is a podcast made by and for members of A.A. to share their experience, strength, and hope on ALL THREE of our legacies in Alcoholics Anonymous and is a service of takethe12.org, this three legacy study website.

We’ll release episodes as soon as they have been recorded and you can listen to and download them here on this site. You can also visit and subscribe to our YouTube Channel where you will be notified each time we launch a new episode.

The primary purpose of of each episode is to create a discussion space of our three legacies so our listeners might be able to have a richer, and more personal experience of A.A.’s 12 Steps, 12 Traditions and 12 Concepts for World Service.

** DISCLAIMER ** LegAAcyChat is not affiliated with Alcoholics Anonymous and no one involved in any episode of this podcast speaks for A.A. as a whole. We’re simply providing this service to members of A.A. to share our own unique experience on ONE of A.A.’s three legacies.

Tradition 6: Greg G. (St. Louis, MO) (01/17/22 – 55:07)

Tradition 11: Kerri K. (Los Lunas, NM) (02/18/22 – 52:34)
