Where to drink this January + real stories – Podcast Episode 3

It seems like January is the time of year where everyone is allowed to talk openly about changing drinking habits. Whether you are unsure about your next move with alcohol or are already clear about your intentions, “Dry January” gives you some space to explore. In this podcast, we share events around the UK plus one from Australia, where to go for a drink, what is on at the Mindful Drinking Festival, interviews with Club Soda members who shared their stories in our book, and how to encourage your pub to change what it serves!

You can listen to the podcast using the player below, of find it at Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
