Welcome to 2nd Act TV! We bring you expert advice and candid talk for women and men living their second act of life. With an eye towards humor, we tackle the “issues of aging” head-on. Let’s make it fun!

We live what we bring you! As the creator of 2nd Act TV, I understand first hand that life after fifty is the beginning of a new era filled with lots of inevitable change. You wake up one morning and realize that you’re “playing the back nine” on an untried course. New opportunities and challenges present that can often leave us feeling timid and alone. Spoiler alert: you are not alone!

Whether we’re talking the prospect of late life divorce, saving a long-term marriage, finding love again in an on-line world, rediscovering sensuality, dealing with sexual dysfunction, navigating menopause without a manual, starting a new fitness program with an ageing body, battling gravity, reinventing our career and halfhearted retirement plans, checking off our bucket list, or confronting our mortality and seeking divine enlightenment to make sense of it all … we’ve been there! And we’re here to talk about it.
