#122 Stacey Dooley: On Getting Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Stacey Dooley is one of Britain’s most loved documentary presenters. In her series Stacey Dooley Investigates she has looked at a variety of topics from sex trafficking and underage sex slavery and the dark side of tourism in Thailand and Kenya – all of which have had amazing reviews. In 2015 Stacey presented a BBC3 documentary looking at domestic abuse in the UK in Beaten By My Boyfriend and prime time, three-part series for BBC3 lifting the lid on the global war on drugs culminating in Cannabis Smugglers.

Stacey immersed herself in different groups with extreme ideologies and beliefs in her most recent two part series Brainwashing Stacey Dooley for BBC3 last year and in 2016, Stacey travelled to Syria and presented the critically acclaimed documentary, Stacey Dooley on The Frontline: Gun Girls and ISIS, also for BBC3.

Many of Stacey’s docs have won the title of ‘Most Watched Documentaries’ on BBC iPlayer. And if she doesn't sound busy enough, she also released her debut Sunday Times Bestselling book this year called On the Front Line with the Women Who Fight Back which documents just some of the amazing women she’s encountered in the past ten years of her career. We talk about the book and her career making documentaries in this episode. Love this episode! I fell even more in love with Stacey and you will too.
