Over The Influence is the alcohol free podcast presented by BBC broadcast journalist Sharon Hartley and Sound Rebel podcast producer Ben Anderson. 

They have both gone completely alcohol free, and this podcast is an honest conversation about how their lives have changed since making that choice.

If you’re here, it means you’re thinking about your relationship with alcohol - we hope our podcast is supporting you in your journey, whether that be going completely alcohol free or whether you’re just sober curious.
