    Yeah, I've heard him on a couple podcasts. He had a crazy heroin problem that he's talked very openly about.

    Marc Maron put up the podcast with him from a couple months ago, where he shares some pretty crazy stories about how he got hooked on heroin.

    Very sad. RIP...

    Thanks for sharing that, Iron, it was a great read. Both heart-felt and funny.

    Harris had a ton of great appearances on the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast. And his efforts to get his comedian friends to like Phish were quite humorous.

    He tells a story on Maron's podcast about trying to buy heroin that is just haunting.

    Just crazy stuff. A super-smart, super-funny guy who clearly had a shitload of demons.

    One of the demons is wanting/needing to get right back to work quickly after he left rehab.

    Many addicts are so caught up in their work a coping mechanism that works is an addiction. Gets you through.

    Addictive personalities never go away, but they can be redirected.

    Similar to having an MLS addiction?
