What is it like to be a 50-year-old woman on television? What are the different societal expectations for men and women when it comes to aging? What are the benefits for a company to hire more employees in their midlife? How can we have more meaningful conversations with people? How should we think about retirement?
Tamsen Fadal joins us this week on the SuperAge podcast to discuss these questions. Tamsen is a journalist, news anchor, author, speaker, and podcast host. She seems to do it all and has no intention of slowing down anytime soon. She recently turned 50 and has the unique perspective of being a woman on television in her midlife. She shares with us some of the challenges that come along with her profession, why she was proud when she turned 50, her thoughts on appearance as we age, how she has more meaningful conversations with people as she has matured, and her thoughts on retirement. David and Tamsen also share some of the current health hacks that they are loving.
What you will learn in this episode:
- What it is like to be a woman in her midlife on television

“Literally for 15 years I was petrified that I was going to wake up and that was going to be the day that I was irrelevant.”
“I turned fifty and I went — it’s like I ripped open my shirt and had superwoman written on my chest — I went, ‘Hey, I’m 50 years old and I’m still on television!’”
“When I turned 50 I didn’t do it hiding behind a curtain trying to pretend I was still 45… I was bragging about it.”
