Helpful for Any Woman in Her 50’s
I find this podcast thought-provoking nearly every time I listen. I’m not divorced, and while some of the dialogue surrounds that subject, I feel like the strength of this podcast lies in the common feelings so many women share after our children are grown and have left home.
I highly recommend this to any woman looking for her place in mid-life.
Looking forward to more!
I just finished listening to the first 17 episodes of this podcast, and it's very enjoyable! The discussion/dialectic approach is surprisingly enlightening. It’s rare to find two women who are equally articulate, equally strong minded, and both have good podcast laughs! And a congenial through-thick-and-thin friendship. I'm finding that listening to opposing points of view from two people who are equally sure that they are right is really helpful! All of the similar life territory Candice and Mette share—being overachievers and intellectual nerds who also now realize other life approaches might be acceptable—is very human and interesting. Looking forward to more episodes!
