And That's When I Realized....the truth and comedy of mid-life with Leone Dyer and Susan Dolci

And That’s When I Realized is a show for those navigating the middle part of life. Susan Dolci and Leone Dyer are two good friends shedding light on the myths and misconceptions around mid-life and providing humor, highlights, and real-life stories to help listeners navigate their own mid-life journeys with a healthy sense of humor. Susan and Leone thought they had life figured out, but when they turned 50, they realized there was so much they were not prepared for; adult children, aging parents, job losses, starting over, questioning life's purpose, and body changes just to name a few… Explore what it means to face challenges with a dose of humor when life pulls us outside of our comfort zone. Get a front-row seat as Susan and Leone share stories and offer a fresh perspective (with a pinch of irreverence) about what it means to be middle-aged.
