Podcast launch: Let’s hae a blether aboot gambling harms in Scotland

October 12, 2023

We are thrilled to share that the first episode of our podcast on gambling harms in Scotland is now live!

Each episode will focus on the story of someone with lived experience of harm from gambling. By exploring each story, we will also get into the connections between gambling and other activities, experiences, or life stages – such as links between gambling and football, homelessness, or parenthood.

The podcast is available on the following platforms:

First episode

Lisa’s story – Women, gambling, and homelessness

The first episode focuses on Lisa’s experience of disordered gambling and homelessness, and how those experiences and her recovery journey now inform her work at Betknowmore UK. Lisa was also joined by Lauren Heaney from Simon Community, Christina Dineen from Fast Forward, and the podcast’s host Robert Quigley.

The next episode will be on links between gambling and football.
