And you can listen in on our private conversation. At least that’s what it felt like when she was interviewing me for her show, “Zestful Aging.” She’s a seductress, I swear – not sexually, but in a friend-mother-sister way; her careful wording in asking questions, her tone of voice, her simply compassionate way of being –[…]
