TBW Guest: Jaimie Sherling on LIVING! Life After Cancer ...and as we find out in this episode, Jaimie is still living life with cancer.
 
While the subject of cancer can be a scary one, difficult to talk about, in this episode, Jaimie Sherling talks candidly about the diagnosis, her next steps and the life that grew out of it all.
Hair loss, double mastectomy, no reconstruction, survivor’s guilt, the fears of parents with younger children, and how her world came together with a community of drag queens.
The world of flat – no prosthetics… and how that led to clothing design.  As in beautiful complimentary clothes for a woman with a flat chest.
The importance of Self care – and that will look different for every woman out there.
Mantras of the day:  “You do you, sweets!” and “Screw that noise!”

TBW Guest: Jennifer Conroyd on Fluid Running What does a marathoner do when she gets injured 6 weeks before the most important race of her career?
Dr. Google of course.
And what does she do when the healing modality of choice leads to a recovery that qualifies her for The Boston marathon.
She builds her own company around that modality, of course.
Whether you’re an Olympic athlete or an 86 year old Gramma, Jennifer Conroyd explains how Fluid Running can make you stronger, fitter, healthier.
Deep water running offers not only as much resistance training as you want, it is completely non-impact.  Whether you’re treating an injury or maximizing your training or completely new to exercise, Jennifer discusses how fluid running gets you to where you want to be.
Needless to say, get clearance from your doctor before trying any new exercise regime… but this is something maybe your doctor will take up too!
If you have heart issues you’ll be interested to hear Jennifer’s description of deep water running’s effect on heart efficiency – again, talk to your doctor first!
Athletes, non-athletes, overweight, para-athletes… the list is endless who can benefit!

TBW Guest: Contrarian Myles Wakeham on Being Unconstrained Agnes and Myles start this episode comparing their childhoods as "free range kids"... with near-off the grid lifestyles and compare them to city living that has been the norm for the last 40 years.
Myles Wakeham was an early software developer whose life unfolded "unconstrained".  He discusses the way of the western world, medical tourism and has interesting views on longevity, government statistics and recommendations, quality of life in “developing” countries. 
Myles shares a history of money and banking leading into a discussion of crypto-currency.  “Be an investor, not a speculator”.
You might be tempted to be depressed about some of the convo but, instead, become proactive about your life, your life choices, and make choices that make you happy and keep you healthy. Make your life an adventure.

TBW Guest: Adult HomeShare Advocate Jennifer Hammer Jennifer Hammer may be an advocate for HomeSharing... it is her job after all... but she also embraces it as a lifestyle choice.
In this episode Jennifer explains that you need to go in with eyes wide open and, like any co-living situation (think family), there may a few bumps... but the benefits are numerous and the rewards are noticeable.
Like so many choices in life, if the concept is new to you or you're not convinced, you can try co-housing for a short term interval.
Agnes and Jennifer covered just about every pro for the lifestyle choice, especially for Boomer Women.

Timeshare Crusader Lisa Ann Schreier Lisa Ann Schreier describes herself as a former salesperson who didn't succeed because she talked too much.  Apparently, in some businesses, giving all the information to potential buyers is not encouraged.
In this episode, Lisa Ann explains the different types of timeshares, how they work, and why the potential buyer needs to control the conversation.
She shares many good tips on what questions to ask, when to challenge, and recommends we walk away and give the purchase clear analysis... despite the time-sensitive pressure applied by the salesperson.
Is timeshare right for you?  Lisa Ann discusses that too.

TBW Guest: Lee St. James on Social Robots in ElderCare Lee St. James may not have "invented" the social robot concept but her application of it in Assisted Living and Residential Care is nothing short of genius.
Lee began exploring the concept when her own father was retreating into dementia in another city.  While the robot's development was too late for her father, Lee quickly realized "Mindy" has a place and a purpose in several areas of residential care.  Their welcome has been immediate and enthusiastic.
In this episode, Lee explains the potential of the social robots to reduce social isolation, loneliness and stress for older adults and introduces us to her current Mindy.
This is definitely a must-share episode, especially as we learn all the issues that arose in ElderCare during the pandemic and, as we all age, we'll now have a headstart on being "handlers" if we go to live in a complex with a few Mindy's roaming the Rec Therapy department.

TBW Guest: Sharon Glassman of Smile Songs Sharon Glassman is an introverted, Brooklyn, NY fashion writer turned Colorado designer and songwriter of Smile Songs cards and gifts that sing.
Definitely an optimist, a glass-half-full woman whose raison d'etre seems to be to make people smile, and to uplift them. That describes Sharon and also her cards and gifts that sing.
Introverts.  Storytelling.  Big city life, small city life and QR codes.  Just part of the conversation this week.
This episode will leave you feeling happy and positive! Be sure to check out Sharon's cards and gifts at https://smilesongs.com

TBW Guest: Sex Therapist Liz Dube Fun. Relaxed. Informative. 
Those are the terms that come to mind to describe a great conversation with Sex & Relationship Therapist Liz Dube.
Yes, we're older.  Yes, body parts may not be as pretty (or perky) as they used to be. Yes, desire might be a little elusive as we get older.
Here's a novel thought: it's not just us women!  Older men, our older partners, may well be feeling many of the insecurities/hesitations that we women are.
Communication. Outercourse. Honesty. Fun.  Embrace those ideas and a vibrant sex life may be yours again... or yours for the first time ever!
A delightful, relaxed conversation about a sometimes taboo subject!!
