Hooked: The Unexpected Addicts

When Jade and Melissa met in treatment, they never imagined that they would become the two British voices of the Hooked podcast on BBC radio 5. Yet, these hosts are normalising the narratives around alcoholism and drug addiction one episode at a time.
Being a nurse and a school teacher isn’t the classic societal portrait of an alcoholic or a drug addict. Still, this brave duo shares their experiences with open-heartedness and shows how the disease of addiction doesn’t discriminate. Each episode touches on a different topic where guests share their experiences and carry a message of hope.
Holder of the Silver title of the 2020 British Podcast Awards for the Best Wellbeing Podcast, listening to Hooked is a humbling and powerful experience, full of gems.

How To Dance Sober

Tom, aka T.bunts, is a sober DJ/producer seeking to rebrand sobriety in dance music culture. He launched his podcast in 2021 and each episode is an interview with someone from the dance music industry. The conversation centers on their careers and involvement in the industry and their journeys with sobriety.
Dance music culture is often synonymous with drinking and drug use, but this podcast presents how the space is open for everyone. How To Dance Sober gives a  dose of hope for sober ravers and dance music fans as parties and clubs start to re-open after a long 18 months of Covid-19 restrictions. 

And it is the opportunity to listen to interviews with some sound DJs.
