1. 04: Old or Older? It's a Choice Jane Leder 26:22

At times, aging ain’t pretty. Body parts begin to fail. Memory is no longer our most trusted pal. We lose people we love dearly.

Jane Leder Podcaster & Author

I am an award-winning author of books about teen suicide, siblings, and men and women during WWII. My feature articles have appeared in publications from Psychology Today to the Chicago Sun-Times. I enjoy the journey of writing, the process. But as I celebrated my seventy-seventh birthday, I wanted a change of focus and turned my creative energies into launching "Older Women & Friends," a podcast. The challenge has been exhilarating and will certainly help me make it through the dead of winter in the Midwest.
