The Shift (on life after 40) with Sam Baker

by sam baker

The Shift is a podcast that aims to tell the truth about being a woman post-40, created and hosted by journalist and author, Sam Baker. 


In this frank, funny, painfully honest new podcast series, Sam talks to a variety of women about the good, the bad and the ugly side of being a supposedly grown up woman in a world that would quite like to ignore us. Each week, guests including Jojo Moyes and Marian Keyes, Sara Collins and Jo Whiley share their experiences of getting older and how they rewrote the rule book. From body image to suddenly discovering all your clothes hate you, from confidence to career reinvention, they talk candidly about mental health, menopause and so much more.


Prepare yourself for a no-holds barred look at what it means to be a woman who’s "shifting" in a society that’s not interested in us. Clue: we’re not having it!
