My favourite podcast in the midlife space
You can tell that Susan Flory is a broadcasting pro. On her podcast "The Big Middle", she interviews thought leaders with a unique perspective on midlife and positive ageing, she shares deep and stimulating conversations, she makes it easy to stay tuned for the entire episode. On top of it all, Susan has a beautiful, soothing voice. Her podcast is one of my absolute favourites and I look forward to every single episode.

Wonderful and unusual podcast on super important topics that really hit the mark. Susan's voice is very mellow and nice to listen to - I see this developing a cult like following!
Fab topics for those in and approaching their silver years! Great contributors interviewed by a first class journalist. Keep up the good work!
