Milly shares the story from her introduction to radio in rehab, to becoming a regular reporter for Radio 4’s flagship programme; Woman’s Hour, where she’s found her niche in reporting on subjects she has lived experience of. Recently Milly produced and presented ‘The Fix: Woman and Addiction’ a nine-part radio series for Woman’s Hour which was inspired and personally authored by her own experiences of being a woman in recovery. She showed how her past is no longer a shameful secret but has become the experience she draws on to inform her work and allows her to humanise her subjects and tell their stories with nuance and empathy.
Milly’s talk was supported by Lankelly Chase. Lankelly Chase was an event partner.
