Today is a BIG day for us. It’s our 500th episode! We love any excuse for a party, as you know, so in lieu of being able to gather the team together for some bubbles we did a very pandemic thing and partied with our listeners over Zoom. Last Thursday evening we held a live episode of the podcast with some very special guests aged 19 to 81, who shared their feelings on ageing and becoming Older & Bolder. They were: Yara Alagha, Rosemary Adaser, Olivia O’Leary, Allie O’Rourke, Jan Brierton, Ann Ingle, Hilary Fannin, Dr Rosaleen McDonagh, Dr Catherine Motherway and Iniolu Ekeolu. It was an emotional evening, as Kathy and Róisín reminisced about some of their most memorable episodes and talked about how far we’ve come since that very first show about women in politics back in 2015. Since then we’ve covered everything from sex toys to fashion, pregnancy to pensions, theatre, domestic violence, abortion and so much more. In today’s episode, you can hear highlights from the live show, including from TV presenter Angela Scanlon who couldn’t make it on the night. Thanks for listening and here’s to 500 more!
