Be More Pirate


Laura Willoughby MBE

Season 1, Ep. 4

In this episode we tackle the somewhat taboo topic that is alcohol consumption. We're joined by the fabulous Laura Willoughby of Club Soda, a community that provides courses and resources for anyone who wants to change their drinking habits. A former political campaigner, Laura co-founded the movement in 2015 after realising that the standard narrative around alcoholism and recovery wasn't working for her, and so probably wasn't working for others either.   

We learnt a hell of a lot from Laura about how you can bring much needed nuance to a binary conversation and tackle an entrenched social norm from multiple angles whilst remaining refreshingly human and non-preachy. 

Listen to the end for some great alcohol-free recommendations!
