The Midlife Conversation with Jen & Lizzie, Breaking Down Ageism in Pop Culture

There’s been a lot of buzz about ageism and midlife women in pop culture recently. This week, I’m joined by my friend and fellow midlife warrior, Lizzie Bermudez, to chat about what we’re seeing and how it made us feel. You might recall that Lizzie was The Jen Marples Show podcast guest #1!

Lizzie is a digital lifestyle host and social influencer, tapping into the mindset of smart and stylish women over 35. As a video host with years of TV experience, Lizzie’s fun-loving personality means she takes her crazy life in stride — raising school-aged kids, running a successful career, and caring for aging parents, all while trying to enjoy the life she’s worked so hard to create. From lip-syncing and car dancing to trying to eat sour candy with a straight face, Lizzie B’s audience knows she doesn’t take herself too seriously. She brings out the playful side of all the guests she interviews, from celebrities to CEOs, and viewers love following her entertaining behind-the-scenes stories on social media. Lizzie lives in San Francisco with her husband and two daughters.

We’re going to break down the controversy surrounding the new Vogue cover (featuring our favorite 90s supers), Carolina Herrera’s recent remarks about 40+ women, AND discuss how midlife is being portrayed in And Just Like That, the Sex and the City Reboot.

Discussion highlights:

  • Ageism in pop culture.

  • Our discomfort talking about menopause & age.

  • Expecting more from famous midlife women with a platform.

  • Is imperfect representation of midlife women OK?
