I'm Lori Massicot, the host of To 50 and Beyond. 

I started the podcast in 2018 with a mission to talk about aging and sobriety and share stories of hope and inspiration in midlife and beyond. 

My continued mission is to bring women over 40 together over topics that don't usually get discussed aloud to break through the shame and stigma that holds us back from being, doing, and experiencing BETTER.

It's never too late to travel another path and have fun along the way. 

I know you're ready to ROCK your very best self To 50 and Beyond!
