Making the unspoken "midlife" spoken

Wondeful podcast about what many may not want to talk about but can be subcosciously worried about. This podcast provides incredible insight and brings on wonderful experts so you can handle this "certain age" with grace, joy and empowerment.

Just What I Need

Yes!! A podcast about *everything* I need to embrace as I get older! I love the midlife nutrition episode and the breast cancer one as well. Y’all are so insightful and engaging — you make me think about better ways to live and accepting the facts of life. Keep on doing what you’re doing!

Wonderful Podcast!

I’ve truly enjoyed listening to these ladies. There are so many different topics that are covered and I love that they are so easy to listen to. Skin Care over 40 is a must listen to episode (listen to the recommendations provided). Keep up the great work!
