1. Taru Fisher on Ageism... Rageism? Boom With A Bang! 58:49

Taru Fisher has been a guest on this podcast before.  New topic for us, old topic between us… age-old topic between us. 

Ageism is the last socially accepted form of prejudice.

We discuss Internalized ageism, Cultural ageism, Implicit ageism, and Benevolent ageism.  All are irritating, and wrong.

The medical system, tech subjects, are areas where people feel quite free to talk down to elders.

Honest and candid, personal experience and personal irritations…

Both of us have great analogies for the ability of our brains to remember more and more as we get older.  You’ll hear a few tips for keeping things straight!

Lots of laughter… because that never gets old!

I’ve probably done most of the things you expect a woman my age to have done: married and divorced; three children; variety of jobs over the years including a couple of home-based businesses and, finally, a pretty good career; gave up that career (and home and life) to move and take care of a dementing mother; adult daughter moved back home with a baby; financial struggles; sucker-punched by the post-2007 economy. You tell a similar story.

My podcast is for Boomer Women. A variety of subjects, a variety of viewpoints... and open to suggestions if I'm not covering a topic you want to hear about.
