According to Oxford’s English Dictionary, a community is defined by a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals., and community just so happens to be one of the core values of GAWG. In this episode, I talk with grown-ass women, some of them listeners of the podcast and YouTube channel, all of them women over 40, in our first ever Pod Squad event. 

So what is Pod Squad? It’s kind of like a book club, but we talk topics that come up on the GAWG podcast as well as discuss other things top of mind, and potential future podcast topics. I just hosted the first in the series and it certainly did not disappoint. A dozen women from all over the US and Canada, from different backgrounds and who each have their own unique life experiences, they all came together to exchange ideas, share opinions and provide insight — it was more than I could’ve ever imagined. And now I have a dozen new friends. 

We talk…

  • The great resignation
  • Life after divorce — especially when married a very long time
  • We began the discussion chatting about a recent episode with Dr. Marilyn Simmons Bowe
