Sari Botton is a bestselling author, editor, and teacher with decades of experience, and we got to benefit from that life experience through engaging in a delightful AF chat with her. We discuss how the idea for Oldster Magazine came to her in a dream, how it took her a long time to stop people-pleasing and come into her own, and how she uses a multi-purpose cream called Egyptian Magic for a true MULTITUDE of purposes. She also shares how a doctor refused to tell her the proper name for her "spongey uterus" and how she demanded to keep her ovaries in order to avoid going into surgical menopause. You know how we love stories of women advocating for themselves, so listen closely and take note. If the above isn't enough to entice you, listen to us talk about our facial hair/zit/wrinkle combo and how you should NOT put tobacco into your vagina to quit smoking. (But you knew that, right?)
