A series of light-hearted with punch random episodes, conversations and encounters in the life of an elderly 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.
Season 6 takes a turn into the superhero universe, where Helen discovers that she has been appointed The Chosen One, with superpowers to help save the planet. A senior citizen with super powers? What could possibly go wrong…
In Season 8 the podcast channel takes time out from Helen’s adventures to punish a few interviews/conversations with friends and colleagues of mine, all over the age of 70, still actively engaged in their creative lives. This series is entitled “Are You Old Yet?? and transcripts of the episodes will also be available.

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
