Everyone's definition of feeling good is very different.DOSE is a multi-media platform for feel-good content and experiences.

How drinking has affected their relationships and libido, their confidence and self-worth, as well as their health and fitness. Millie also shares some insight on what it's like dating sober and how her friends reacted to her going teetotal.If you are frustrated by the lack of exciting and adventurous alcohol-free options, try Caleño.

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.This podcast is in partnership with MALIN+GOETZ – purveyors of uncomplicated luxury skincare.
