Love Sober Podcast 118 Guest Josh Connelly
This week on the pod we talk to @josh_ffw about his mental health and sobriety journey, his work with @nacoa and his personal journey growing up with a parent who drank too much. Josh is a wonderful speaker and this raw and honest conversation really stayed with us, we recorded it at the end of last year, but it now being #coaweek2021 it seemed like the right moment.
Please just a note that Josh’s story refers to suicide so take care listening and if you’re feeling fragile come back to it when you’re feeling stronger. It’s a great conversation about resilience, sobriety and finding purpose, well worth a listen so grab a cuppa and let’s chat.

Love Sober Podcast 116 Guest: Bryony Hamerton
On this week's podcast Kate talks to Yoga Instructor, teacher and therapist Bryony Hamerton about the benefits of yoga in recovery, sobriety and wellness. We look at both as a process of enquiry. We also welcome February by looking at the concept of Metta ( well-being) in yoga philosophy and the parallels with sobriety. Yoga in terms of brain, neurotransmitters, nervous system regulation, resilience and managing triggers can be SO helpful and has been life changing for Kate in terms her wellbeing.
If you are yoga curious and wondering how this might add to your sober toolkit you can try a free class with Bryony at https://www.be-yoga.uk.com/
or follow the socials: Insta: https://www.instagram.com/yogabryony/
To help Be-Yoga to survive the financial impact of COVID you can, if you would like, donate to the Just Giving page Kate has set up because they are a huge factor in her not losing her shit and being sober XXX
Love Sober Podcast 115 Guest:Lotta Dann 29/01/2021
This week we had a brilliant chat with the wonderful Lotta Dann.
Lotta Dann has a degree in broadcasting and communications and a master’s degree in film, television and media studies. She worked for over twenty years as a TV journalist and producer while also developing a nasty addiction to alcohol. She got sober aged 39 with the help of an anonymous blog called 'Mrs. D Is Going Without' which eventually became a best-selling memoir of the same name. Another memoir, 'Mrs D Is Going Within', came next and she has just released her third book, 'The Wine O'Clock Myth: The truth you need to know about women and alcohol' which is an exploration of the alcohol-centric culture we live in and the impact it's having on women. She manages the large online community Living Sober (www.livingsober.org.nz).
So grab a cuppa and let’s chat.
