Radio personality Maz Compton launched her podcast, Last Drinks, in partnership with Acast.
Legendary radio personality Maz Compton has launched his highly anticipated and sober-curious podcast, Last Drinks. This passion project was brought to life by partnering with Acast, equipping Maz with all the tools necessary to create their podcast on their terms.
Following an unsuspecting but undeniable addiction to alcohol, Maz has been sober since 2015. As host of Last Drinks, Maz reframes our cultural narrative around alcohol with honest conversations about sobriety and sober curiosity.
Maz Compton, host of Last Drinks, said: “Australians have complex emotions around alcohol. Why are we offended if our companion refuses to have a drink with us? I want to empower people to redefine their relationship with alcohol by sharing my sobriety story and talking to others about how they navigated life without alcohol.
“I’ve worked in broadcast media for decades, but this is the first time I’ve had complete autonomy over what content I want to share with the world. This was made possible through a partnership with an independent podcast company like Acast.
Guy Scott-Wilson, Director of Creators Network, Acast Australia and New Zealand, said: “As a home of independent podcasting, our mission is to be as creator-centric as possible. By partnering with Acast, Maz has the freedom and tools to develop and grow valuable relationships with listeners, while ensuring she retains full creative control – which we know is especially appealing to creators. with a background in traditional broadcasting.
Maz Compton is a television and radio host who has lived her life out loud. From MTV to the dizzying heights of a national radio show, her life on paper was on point, but her relationship with alcohol was completely out of whack. Maz had her last drink at NYE 2014 and wants to share the joy and empowerment that sobriety can bring to every person by having honest conversations about how to navigate a great life without alcohol.
As part of its commitment to the open podcast ecosystem, Acast will make Last Drinks available to listeners on all podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts, Samsung Free and more.
