206 episodes

Men and women in midlife are drawn to Mary Rogers’ honest take on the experiences of the empty nest, aging parents, spending an inheritance, dating and sex, travel, downsizing things, trashing bad habits and figuring out who you want to be now that you really are all almost grow up.

The podcast is always smart, usually funny, and occasionally painfully real in speaking to the cusp of GenX and Baby Boomers.

Janelle Anderson ,

Such a needed podcast!

Love Mary's energy, perspective, and the relevant topics for those of us who have passed the 50 year mark. The variety of topics is helpful for this season because there are SO many things changing and going on for women in midlife!

CJ Grace ,

Terrific interviews

Mary Rogers warmly draws out her guests to get heartfelt stories that are sometime poignant and sometimes extremely funny. The Experience 50 Podcast for Midlife covers all aspects of later life and will appeal to anyone in that age group.
