Growing Bolder is a brand-new podcast that celebrates the wonderful ways people are living life after 50. Actress, presenter and Loose Women panellist Linda Robson hosts the six-part series, brought to you by over 50s life insurance provider Zestylife.
Launching on Monday 19th April and running for six weeks, Linda will be welcoming a different guest onto the show every Monday, all of whom have found a new lease of life after 50. In a podcast that promises to be entertaining, inspiring, funny and poignant in equal measure, Linda will be exploring each guest’s story and sharing some of her own experiences along the way.
Great British Bake Off’s Jane Beedle shares her wonderful journey from garden designer, to Bake Off contestant, to business owner. Lynn Ruth-Miller, the world’s oldest working stand-up comedian chats about touring the stand-up comedy circuit at the age of 87, publishing her own memoir and the advice she was given that continues to inspire her today. Charlie Hides, the 57-year-old drag performer from Boston who holds the title of being the oldest queen to ever appear on Ru Paul’s Drag Race in America, swaps hilarious stories with Linda about Joan Rivers and talks about hanging out with Kylie Minogue.
Growing Bolder has been created to mark the launch of Zestylife, the only over 50s life insurance provider that offers instant cover without a waiting period – meaning from day one, the policy is live leaving customers to get on with the things they love.
Growing Bolder’s host, Linda Robson, says: “I think as I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten wiser too. With life comes experience, and I just find older folk more interesting than the young ones, as they aren’t worried about taking selfies or how they look, they’re just comfortable in their own skin. I’m a self-confessed nosy person, so getting to know six remarkable people and hear about the ways they’re using their time later in life is fascinating, they’ve all achieved wonderful things and are an inspiration to us all.”
Linda also gets to know the larger than life Frank Rothwell. Frank is in his seventies and has achieved some amazing feats, including raising over £1 million for Alzheimer’s Research UK by taking on the ‘world’s toughest row’ – the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge – which he completed earlier this year unassisted after spending 56 days at sea, solo. He also shares his incredible stories on when he was left to brave the elements for Channel 4’s The Island with Bear Grylls when he was 67.
The series also features Fabafterfifty founder and ageism in the workplace activist Ceri Wheeldon, who at the age of 61 has dedicated her life to helping people redefine what it means to be 50, as well as broadcaster, author and blogger Suzi Grant. Suzi Grant is on a mission to spread the positive ageing message on how to look and feel good (no matter how old you are!)
Setting up a life insurance policy can fall to the bottom of a to-do list, but during these unprecedented times it is more important than ever to protect your family. With the average cost of a funeral around £3,800† customers taking out cover have traditionally been forced to wait for a specified period before any claim becomes valid. Zestylife offers the peace of mind that should the worst happen, families are protected. With premiums starting from as little as £4.26 per month‡, each new policy holder will receive a free £100 Amazon Gift Card§. With the usual waiting period of one or even two years for a life insurance policy to kick in omitted, Zestylife is there for you, making it quick and easy to be covered in minutes, with no medical or forms to fill in.
Growing Bolder will be available to listen to from the 19th April on the Zestylife website here as well as popular podcast platforms (Apple Podcast and Spotify) by searching for ‘Growing Bolder’, with episodes released every Monday throughout April and May.
