107 | Mel Kenny & Trish Gordon | Don’t Give A Fifty Podcast


When you hit your 50’s should you really give a flying fifty about the stuff that shouldn’t matter?

Meet Mel Kenny and Trish Gordon, two life-long friends who say hell no, and host Don’t Give A Fifty Podcast!

I had a fantastic chat with Mel and Trish about everything from Menopause to mental health, from the power of female friendships to podcasting in your 50’s. Mel and Trish are girls after my own heart, with a pro-ageing mentality and a passion for changing negative narratives around midlife and beyond.

Sassy, smart and a bit cheeky, you won’t want to miss their wisdom.

‘Don’t Give a Fifty,’ is a podcast for midlife women looking for a weekly hangout with two regular 5ishers who aren’t prepared to put on the handbrake just yet. The girls delve into the fun stuff, the hard stuff and everything in between.

Mel and Trish Don't Give a Fifty

We laugh a lot (and chat a lot) together – and this podcast is an extension of the dynamic of our own friendship. We’re not trying to be highbrow, super-profesh podcasters – we want it to feel like you’re sitting around with your favourite cuppa or glass, chatting with your girlfriends. We want to fill your cup, give you a warm hug so you know you’ve got this. We don’t skirt around the tough topics – and we never will. But we will always bring an element of lightheartedness to it – because you’ve gotta laugh, right? We see ourselves as part of the growing movement of change in how midlife women are perceived – a small cog in a big wheel, if you like. And we aim to be role models for younger women to look ahead and see women living vibrant lives, not allowing age to be a barrier to thrive.
