The booming Blooming Boomers, Late Bloomers (and Others) podcast is an Autumn and Winter Productions podcast. The podcast focus is on topics resonating especially with those of us 50 years old and up, and up: the booming, blooming Boomers, the late Bloomers, and just us all of us more mature folks: exploring, celebrating, sharing, the wonderful creative and amazing autumn and winter seasons of our lives. Topics are wide-range and include health, travel, dating, making new friends, dress code, bursts of new-found creativity, dealing with loss, retirement, fitness, residential care, dealing with ageism, down-sizing, new careers and businesses, happiness, ageing well, death, quality of life as we get older .... Each podcast is 15-30 minutes in duration and follows one of the following 3 formats: co-hosts Anna and Mirella share their personal views on a particular topic; or, invited guest(s) add their input and stories based on their knowledge, experience, challenges, achievements; or, On the Street perspectives on a specific topic from the general public - random passers-by. We generally post 1-2 episodes per month (with possible exception during the summer months and December). Some of the experiences and perceptions we discuss are common to us all as we get older, some are very unique as each one of us. The overall goal of the podcast series is to provide a voice, and even a community, for those of us 50 years old and well beyond, in a society that at large tends to minimize those voices and their relevance. We'd like to continue helping to shape the world, to contribute, encourage discussion, to inspire, inform, question, to understand, even provoke and challenge what it means to be an autumn and winter bloomer today in our communities, in our society and in the world in general. During each podcast, we strive to be our authentic selves and share our journeys, so our style is personal, open, curious, sometimes even philosophical, partly our own self-discovery and growth - so please join us.
