A new podcast.

Welcome to Life Gets Real. Hosted by singer/songwriter/author Ann Reed, it's a series of interviews with women, all of them over 60. It's conversations about experiences of life so far, what's behind, and what's ahead. With heart and humor we talk about grief, love, loss, hope—what happened and how did we get to be where we are right now. It's women's stories.
