Introducing Pod of the 3rd Age

Hosted by Jo Stanley

There’s a real stigma around aging, and the Third Age of life is often misrepresented and misunderstood.

Join us as we tackle essential topics like overcoming downsizing hurdles with expert Peter Walsh, destigmatizing discussions around loneliness with Dr. Michelle Lim from ‘Ending Loneliness Together,’ and demystifying financial planning for retirement.

We’ll have meaningful conversations, inviting real-life experiences and insights from everyday Aussies making the most of life in the Third Age.
