The Boomer Woman’s Podcast

2023 is the 4th Season of The Boomer Woman’s Podcast, formerly the Two Boomer Women Podcast. Each episode is a conversation between me – I’m Agnes Knowles, your host – and a guest who talks to a subject that, someway, somehow, is relatable to Boomer Women. The guests can be any age, any gender, as long as their message is positive, informative, pertinent to our demographic. You, dear listener, might need to be open-minded, curious, tolerant, inclusive… and if you are, you will enjoy these conversations, maybe learn something, and I encourage you to share each and any episode!

Kristin Mallon is a feminine longevity expert.  Sick care is so necessary but well care should be too.  And women need well care into the elder years… beyond the reproductive years.

Our last decade is called the Marginal Decade and there is no reason we shouldn’t have health and wellness through it, or most of it (and hopefully our age will be triple digits!).

Today Kristin Mallon focuses on breast health.  Monthly self-examination...

“Women don’t need more products to buy, they want to learn about managing their finances, from opening the right kind of accounts to learning how to invest their money.”

Melinda Satterlee compares connecting with new clients in her business as a “dating period” – you get to know each other, make sure your philosophies and methods are compatible – before you decide to go steady.

Her description of the building blocks – what your nee...

Senior living communities. We need to get past the concept of them being for old people!  Good meals cooked for you, housekeeping done for you, entertainment and social events planned for you… but you come and go as you please… sounds like an ideal lifestyle to me!

Tonia Griffin is a marketer for a senior living complex in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and in the episode, she explains the difference between “Independent Living” and “Assi...

This episode is an important one for both women and men.  Dr. Daved Rosensweet starts with an overview of hormones for both women and men and what they do for us.

Interesting thought: not that many generations ago there was no such thing as menopause because lifespan was not that long.

Dr. Rosensweet gives us the facts behind the breast cancer risk that was associated with HRT and discusses Premarin and plant-based bio-identical ho...

Tech came easy to Jill McCarthy, aka The Geeky Grandma. Since her first computer arrived she has been learning and creating and teaching, and over the years it has led to the growth of a community.

She combined her affection for penpal letter writing into e-pals where matched women would email each other.  That grew into a women’s group, retreats, and a real community.

Jill’s podcast is The Geeky Grandma with An Encouraging Nudge. ...

Do you take responsibility for your own happiness?  It is in your hands… and you have to cultivate it.

Life happens to all of us.  If it seems overwhelming, you can still choose how you respond… even if your response is choosing to binge Netflix for a period of time – it’s a conscious choice.

Finding positives is how we start to retrain our neurology.  So in the midst of “the mess”, are you healthy? Do you have a home? Clean water ...

An extra-long episode today – that’s what happens when Agnes gets chatting with a history educator and Barbara has so many thought-inspiring insights!

As an educator, Barbara brings an interesting take on the job of teaching today and how children le...

Today’s conversation starts with discussion of the maiden years, the mother years, the crone years.

Paula’s description of her life in the corporate arena might sound exciting but, as she matured, she started to recognize what she calls the “aridity” of her seemingly successful life. 

An interesting discussion of masculine attributes and feminine attributes at a cultural/corporate level.  Also, the lack of rites of passage in weste...

A woman’s power.  That deep-rooted, deeply felt power that comes from the feminine.  Wisdom, the magnitude each woman has, inexhaustible energy.

Alara Sage calls herself the ecstatic life mentor after a spontaneous kundalini awakening.  She talks about orgasm in a sexual way, but also in a non-sexual, more sensual way… that life is meant to be highly pleasurable.

An interesting discussion about being in the present moment – our min...

Juliana Dever’s enthusiasm for travel is so contagious in this episode.  It’s impossible to disagree with her reasoning on why we should travel.  Whether experiencing something new… or better than your status quo; or how novelty unleashes a creativity you’ve never acknowledged before; or finding a person or a thing that startles your sense of what is.  And guess what, Listeners!  In Juliana’s experience, women are the more adventur...

Hilary Truong is a therapist who specializes in the Mother–Daughter Relationship.  You may not want to hear all of what she says but perhaps that’s a control issue (my words, not hers) – no one ever suggested parenting was easy and there is no “one-size-fits-all” method for the generations to figure it out.

At any age, we need to remember that the mother is the mother and her daughter is the daughter and not allow those lines to bl...

Last week I spoke with Terri Yuzon, CEO and founder of Hemplily.  Hemplily provides natural, cannabis-based alternatives for many issues that women experience: hot flashes, night sweats, stress, sleep… to name a few.

Last year I spoke with an herb and cannabis farmer from Ontario and he was SO knowledgeable about the bio-chemistry of cannabis and the endo-cannabinoid system within our bodies, that I decided to pull excerpts from my...

When she was much younger Terri Yuzon was given a diagnosis of fibromyalgia.  Determined not to be on meds for the rest of her life, she started researching a healthier lifestyle.  Part of that search led her to cannabis but cannabis in those days was a more drug-associated product.  Finally she was able to create a hemp-product that didn’t have the “drug” effects of marijuana.  Hemplily was officially launched.

Cannabinoid recepto...

There really are no holds barred when Love and Life Coach Ann Bell talks about sex.  Her playful side and her sexual side blend effortlessly.

Today Ann reminds us Boomer Women about things we either knew and have forgotten over the years or maybe we never knew them at all.

Lots of laughs in this episode where conversation ranges from orgasm to cougars to eat, pray, love.

A slightly different format today as Sherrilynne describes her international career… and how it developed as the internet became a “thing”. 

Agnes and Sherrilynne connected because of their podcaster lives.  Sherrilynne’s podcast is a passion project… so interesting as she interviews 50 women over 50.  Some of her interviews are impactful… you may be adding her podcast to your playlist.  Between these two podcasters there is a lot ...

Today’s episode starts off the an unexpected lesson in pronunciation and anglicization of names.

But the real story:  Andrew Wang has a career rather unrelated to music.  He decided to learn guitar, however, and found himself experiencing serious stage fright when he played in front of people.  Ring a bell with you?  Start a new project as an adult only to realize doing it in front of people was nerve-wracking.

We are aware of DNA as it pertains to our physical traits, but how about emotional DNA?

The physical may be inarguable, but what if you challenged your emotional place in the world and decided to change it?

Food.  Money.  Relationships. Huge triggers of negative emotions or experiences.  Judy explains that Genealogy 1.0 is “Here’s where you belong” and Genealogy 2.0 is  “Here’s what happened, and how it matters to where you belong”...
