Hooked: The Unexpected Addicts

I’ve been listening to a BBC podcast on my way to work this last couple of weeks which I’ve really enjoyed. Called Hooked, it’s about ‘all things addiction and recovery’ and is frank, funny, well-informed, upsetting, entertaining, resonant, authentic and powerful.

Melissa and Jade share their lived experience but also interview experts and others who are in recovery on a variety of topics including: rehab; relationships; relapse; codependency, porn and sex addiction; mental health; food; sober Christmas etc.

The presenters debunk myths, dissolve shame, educate and reduce stigma in with their unique blend of humour, curiosity and discussion. I recommend it.

It’s available for UK listeners from the BBC website, on the BBC Sounds app, and for people living elsewhere on Apple Podcasts.
