Women of the Hour: "Aging," Season 2, Episode 10

Our theme today is aging.

It's the final episode of Women of the Hour's second season! We're discussing aging and growing up, as we hear from novelist Mary Karr and artist (and Lena's mom) Laurie Simmons on their experiences as artists aging in a world that can be hostile to women over 40. Actress Daisy Egan shares what it's like to win a Tony at 11 years old and what comes next. Journalist Ramaa Raghavan takes us inside the world of middle-aged stand-up comics, and producer Bari Finkel's grandparents give us a glance into the sex life of an octogenarian couple. Plus, thoughts on aging and laugh lines from Khloe Kardashian, Jamie Lee Curtis, Chelsea Perretti, Ilana Glaser, Holland Taylor, Cara Delevigne, Gabourey Sidibe, and Tavi Gevinson! All this and more as we bid you farewell until next season. If you like what you're hearing, make sure you subscribe, so you're all set for the next one!
