Things That Make You Go... Mmm

Things That Make You Go... Mmm

Midlife makes us stop and take stock of life, where we’re at, what we want and what’s important to us. Things that we’ve ignored or never considered before suddenly need look at. In depth. Join me, Karen O’Connor, and my guests each week as we chat about the things that are important to us: health, families, finances, our purpose in life, the community around us and the (state of!) world in general. We cover a bus load of topics that need to be discussed, from what men need to know about menopause to how to plan your own funeral, from style and looking good to how to lose the menopause fat. If you’ve asked the question or thought about something to do with life after 50, you’ll hopefully find a podcast about it here. And if you don’t, message me because it’ll probably be a great topic to cover! Subscribe to the podcast so you don’t miss a single thought provoking episode: https://www.mmmpodcast.me/email

Did you know that in Germany, I think it's about an hour after they've gone off stage they can't be held accountable for any actions that they take to wards a crime. They'll still be charged, but they won't be criminally culpable - they'll be considered to be insane. The nature of getting into character has its effects on our psychological state, and especially when you are getting into the character of a mu...

Imagine if your child found themselves caught by strangers and forced to have sex with other strangers with no way of ...
