Listen: Sam and Duncan catch up with radio star and author Maz Compton – about her former struggle with drinking, and how she found her way out. 

For over 13 years Maz Compton was a stalwart of commercial radio, well known in both Sydney and Adelaide as one half of the celebrity duo, Dan and Maz.

Along with her co-host, she hosted a top rated breakfast show in both cities and in 2016 announced her retirement from radio to pursue other endeavours.

What many people didn’t know is that during those years, Maz had a problem with drinking.

Her first book called Unedited looked at life behind the microphone, but her latest, The Social Rebellion (pictured below), tackles her journey through giving up alcohol.

The book provides a roadmap to help readers start their road to sobriety with “a cheeky month alcohol-free”. It’s a serious conversation that Maz seriously needed to have and that she wants to share with others who are in the same position.
