This episode digs into many topics (tangents??) as Lee takes a journey into exploring the different ways men and women age. He goes into detail about why these gender differences may exist and/or what may be causing them. Lee builds a solid case for his ending conclusion that women have to bare a greater burden in how our culture has depicted aging. Along the way to these conclusions, Lee talks about how “Placebos” have been used to influence our thinking, and the trickery of statistics, both of which provide intriguing side notes that contribute to a deeper understanding. This is definitely one for those who may be more intellectually inclined. But even if you find this level of detail boring, there are enough chuckles here to make it worth your while.

“Women have stronger societal pressures to resist and hide the signs of their aging than men do. So it is no wonder men seem to have an easier time dealing with the signs of aging than women.” Lee Mowatt

  1. I just listened to this podcast and it was fascinating. I realized that I dye my hair blonde so that I won’t look old or what society considers old. My daughters said I would look better. There are many differences between women and men and how society perceives the two genders.
    Thank you for providing these fascinating podcasts
