SHATTERED IMAGE - Brian Cuban  is the younger brother of billionaire Mark Cuban,  owner of the Dallas Mavericks.  Brian is a successful lawyer and activist for First Amendment issues and  hate speech.  However, the relationship with fame and fortune has not always been beneficial to Brian.  Over the years,  he has struggled with addiction to alcohol and cocaine,  negative body image, depression, suicide and steroid use.  Red River Radio's Chuck Smith spoke with Brian recently to discuss his journey to recovery and how he overcame the stigma of addiction.
