EdUp Legal Podcast, Episode 18: Conversation with Brian Cuban
EdUp Legal Podcast with Host Patty Roberts
Digital Commons at St. Mary's University
In this episode, we hear from Brian Cuban, Dallas-based attorney, author, and addiction recovery advocate. Brian Cuban, a Dallas-based attorney, author, addiction recovery advocate, and younger brother of Dallas Mavericks owner and entrepreneur Mark Cuban, discusses his recovery since 2007 from alcohol, cocaine, and bulimia. Brian has written three books, and during this episode, shares the experiences that inspired each of them. The first explored his decades of living with and recovering from eating disorders, entitled Shattered Image: My Triumph Over Body Dysmorphic Disorder. The second, The Addicted Lawyer, Tales of The Bar, Booze, Blow & Redemption, identifies the addiction and mental health issues that destroyed his successful legal career, and during the podcast, he shares the destructive nature of addiction and the rock-bottom circumstances which led to the start of his journey of recovery. Brian's experiences with addiction, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, and hard-fought recovery are revealed candidly, and the often-shocking stories make his resilience and recovery even more compelling. Brian shares these stories nationally through personal appearances, his books, and numerous columns in national media outlets in order to encourage students, attorneys, and others facing similar challenges to seek help and start recovery. Brian gives advice to current law students, and encourages all of us to look out for one another using an inquiry that starts by asking "Are you ok?" Brian's first legal thriller, The Ambulance Chaser, will be published in December 2021.
