A coming-of-age, slice of life, audio fiction comedy with a difference. Our ageing heroine shares senior moments, family relationships and adventures—entertaining and a wee bit provocative.

Written, performed and produced by Aussie-born, Liverpool-based actress, singer-songwriter and performance poet Flloyd Kennedy with guest performers on 3 continents. 
★★★★★ "This is delightful storytelling from Flloyd Kennedy. Gentle but deceptively sharp; underestimate the characters populating this podcast at your own peril. The writing, performance and music are all a joy."

    Celebration!

    Celebration!

    Season 10 kicks off with lots of new beginnings. I'm so happy to be part of the Fable & Folly network, such an honour to be in the company of all the best audio fiction on the airwaves. Here in Am I Old Yet?'s world, it's Helen's 80th birthday, and her friends and family step up to help her to celebrate. Including Hera, Queen of the Greek Gods, and Seffi - otherwise known as Persephone, the Goddess of Spring. Zeus can't be there in person, but he has found a way of making his presence known. There will be feasting, and there will be a nap. What more could one ask? Do stick around till the end, there's a gift for you too.
    Cast:
    Wendy Lap - Hera
    Flloyd Kennedy - Joey, Helen, Janey, Susie

    Helen takes the goddess Demeter to task for providing her with superpowers without any idea how to use them, and the goddess/nymph Cyllene seems to support her. Helen's  on a mission to get it right next time.  Please take a look at our crowdfunding campaign, to pay the actors (because they're worth it) and buy new equipment.  https://fnd.us/AmIOldYet?ref=sh_1DCqMfCast:Cyllene - Sarah GoldingDr Calumn Shrodinger - Christopher McDougallHelen, Demeter, Janey, Susie - Flloyd KennedyMusic - from "In the Labyrinth", composed and performed by John T La BarberaWritten and directed by, editing and sound design - Flloyd KennedySFX: - Freesound.org437462__arpeggio1980__outside-quiet-cafe-restaurant-crockery-stereo-atmos-atmosphere-wildtrack-ambience326235__blu_150058__in-car-ambiance635058__sillygrizzlies__walking-footsteps-on-wood361165__funwithsound__door-open-and-close

    Picking up from where we left off at the end of Episode 3, Helen enjoys a catchup coffee with her neighbours Jennifer, Harry and Nana Madeleine, while Hera and the children try find the 'buzzard' that flew off.  Zeus thinks he's so clever, but he's not the only one who can transform in the wink of an eye.  Thank you so much for your support. Please remember to spread the word, tell your friends, your grandparents, your grandchildren.  You're never too young, or too old, to enjoy a silly story about what other young, and not so young any more folk might get up to, if given half a chance.AND ANOTHER THING:  check out Wendy Lap's podcast The Richard Osman Fan Club, for a very funny tale of derring-do - with me in it! https://lnns.co/HfugmUqKYeA

    Episode 5 and Helen finds dealing with Greek royalty to be a challenge. She seems to be able to manage her great age rather better than they do. Hashtag Not All Old People...fill in your own cliche. And Nana Madeleine is concerned about the welfare of Mina, the homeless lady.This weeks episode features Wendy Lap as Hera, Ira Seidenstein as Zeus, Roy Carruthers as Harry (from next door) and Flloyd plays Helen, Nana, Janey and Susan. The theme music is from John T La Barbera's album "In The Labyrinth". And the image for this episode is courtesy of the versatile Wendy Lap.Please help us to spread the word, gain more listeners.
