Episode 151: Mary Lou at 94

In this episode we meet a true broad - a 20th century woman who has bucked convention in more ways than one.

Mary Lou landed her first job as a telephone operator in 1941, and went on to become a social worker and then a teacher. Along the way she married, had six children, divorced, and became a (very) independent woman. Today, at almost 95, she’s settled down with her partner Al and tells me, ‘I’ve had a fantastic life.’
