A series of light-hearted with punch random episodes, conversations and encounters in the life of a 78 year old woman, performed (with guest artists) and produced by Flloyd Kennedy.
Helen lives on her own, except when her family decide to invade her space “to look after her”, or because they want her to fix them. She is determined to claim her space as ‘elder’, ‘senior’, ‘crone’ with dignity, honesty and joy. Although the dignity part is proving the most difficult…
Each episode is a vignette, 10 minutes or so in Helen’s life as she navigates her family, friends and health through a pandemic and beyond.

Clever tales in a unique woman’s voice
“Flloyd’s mini-dramas are refreshing, witty and cleanly done. Acerbic yet sweet, like a fresh lemonade.” nirmalajc from the United States1:40 pm (EDT), May 22, 2021

“Flloyd Kennedy manages to be both accessible and sneakily subtle – a combination that never fails to have me hanging on to every word. This is whether in her podcasts which are deceptively domestic or her prolific poems or captivating and gently savage songs. They are all worth exploring.”Frankie Armstrong
Just what is old?
“You can’t help but love the lead character Helen as she tries to dodge the, “ Are you alrights,” from her family and she searches for the true meaning of the word “Old”
Flloyd is a master of timing and voices. Really enjoyable.” shaaaaaarz from the United Kingdom12:18 pm (EDT), May 26, 2021

This looks fantastic Floyd- I look forward to time to listen. Congratulations.
Wow! I thought it was a unique podcast just from the premise, but four episodes into the series, I am finding it a rather surprisingly… moving experience! With a balanced mix of move-you-to-tears drama and comic relief, Flloyd crafts a relatable tale that can touch… ‘You’, no matter where you come from, what you do and, most importantly, how old you are! Episode #1 (which is the second one from the bottom on Spotify, at least) is my favourite so far!
I subscribed, hit the bell icon and am yearning for more! Keep ’em a-comin’!
thanks so much! Just posted this everywhere!!! So happy to have you on board, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the ride…
