Hacking Happiness is a podcast by DOSE that explores what makes us feel good to improve our mental, physical, spiritual and emotional wellbeing. Whether it's a dopamine hit from reaching a career goal. A rush of oxytocin from spending time with loved ones. A surge of serotonin from practising self care or a fitness class that sends endorphins soaring. Everyone's definition of feeling good is very different.


DOSE is a multi-media platform for feel-good content and experiences. The brand now communicates to an audience of over 100,000 readers nationally.

    Andrea Thompson Editor In Chief at Marie Claire

    Andrea Thompson is the Editor In Chief at Marie Claire. For much of her career she has specialised in investigative journalism and loves helping bring to light inspirational stories from people who traditionally have not been given a voice in mainstream media.


    In her years as an undercover reporter, she travelled the world exposing everything from child labour in India to rogue surgeons in Moscow who were creating stem cell beauty treatments from aborted foetuses. She’s secretly filmed money-grabbing doctors on Harley Street for Channel 4 show The Ugly Face of Beauty and went undercover on celebrity yachts in Cannes to investigate the casting couch tradition that exploits young models during festival season. Her most nerve-wrecking stories included researching the casual use of rape-drugs in Goa for The Sunday Times and going undercover to expose the dubious business dealings of property tycoon Donald Trump for The Daily Mail, a whole decade before he took up residence at the White House.


    At Marie Claire, Andrea oversaw a hard-hitting feature on rape as a weapon of war that won the title an Amnesty Media Award, and now acts as as a judge for the awards each year. She regularly chairs events for Marie Claire and mentors young women trying to break into the industry. 


    In this podcast, she talks to us about how she balances a high powered career with raising two children, her advice to budding journalists and how she gets her endorphins pumping though runs and climbing trees in Hampstead Heath.

    Gail Federici on building a beauty empire whilst raising twins

    Gail Federici on building a beauty empire whilst raising twins

    Gail Federici is a beauty industry veteran and serial entrepreneur. After studying law and working in the haircare business, she went on to co-found John Frieda, where she created the iconic Frizz Ease Serum. A brand which she and Frieda sold in 2002 for a mind-boggling $450 million.


    After signing a 5 year non-compete clause, she had a brief dalliance in the music industry, where her twins, after appearing in that John Frieda Sheer Blonde campaign, launched a career as pop stars. But haircare was always Federici's true passion. After conquering the frizz, she then turned her attention to tackling grey roots and Color Wow was born. The multi-award winning brand is beloved by celeb hairstylists including Chris Appleton, stylist to J.LO and Kim Kardashian.
