I want to take up a little bit of internet space to thank my listeners/readers for their support of my Experience 50 projects. “Thank You!”
This really is a passion project for me and it all makes sense when I get feedback like the email below.
…and here are some current reviews on iTunes…
The Wonderfully Engaging Mary Rogers!
in iTunes by Haremscarem from USA on August 30, 2016
I just had the great pleasure of being a guest on the Experience 50 Podcast with Mary Rogers. What a treat! Smart, engaging, funny and curious. I’m talking about Mary, not me. She couldn’t have made me feel more comfortable. I feel as though we’ve know each other for years. Something tells me we will. Thank you Mary!
Yes. So much yes. Just listen.

Insightful, Oh So Funny, Genuine. Doesn’t matter where you are in life, you will be able to relate to these episodes on so many levels. Love her! 🙂
in iTunes by Beav1971 from USA on August 17, 2016
I love all of Mary’s interviews. I’m not yet 50, but enjoy the insightful thoughts that Mary and her guest share. Even though Mary’s Podcast is “Experience 50”, I think it always has a message that any age can learn and grow from. Thanks for sharing your “experience” with all of us.

The fact that Mary Rogers is producing and hosting this show on her own would be a very sobering one for NPR if they gave it a listen. Her pacing, interviewing skills and even the timber of her voice would all fit seemlessly into a programming schedule populated with much more expensively produced shows. However, the magic of the show doesn’t actually come from any of the atributes I just listed; it comes from Mary’s genuine curiosity combined with her interest in her guests and the subjects they’re invited to discuss. Admittedly, I don’t listen to many podcasts, but this one captures and holds my interest and likely would even if I weren’t in the show’s targetted demographic. Needless to say; I’m a fan.
Entertaining and informative!
in iTunes by Mary Eileen Williams from USA on August 17, 2016
Experience 50 is a collection of some of the most entertaining podcasts around. Host Mary Rogers brings her wit, insight and considerable interviewing skills to draw out the best from her guests. Her focus is on midlife and the multiple transitions inherent to the age. But, better yet, her interviews are high-energy, informative and fun. So plan on spending some well-used time hanging out with Experience 50. You’ll be in store for a real treat!

Sehr abwechslungsreiche Themen, viele Lesetips
in iTunes by Bob Mahon from USA on May 23, 2016
My wife and I have listened to most episodes of E50. It is really important for us to have shared interests and fresh topics to discuss. Mary’s podcast provides a platform for us to explore new issues as we enter our next phase of life. That and Trump. Uhg. I think one of her greatest gifts as an interviewer is that she lets people talk, (which means she is confident enough in herself to not interrupt guests and the interesting stories they tell). She somehow does this while being fun and completely charming. Self assured people are able to let a conversation flow. Mary’s got the gift. Full disclosure; I knew Mary and her sister for a short time, a long time ago. It’s kinda cool to see a new medium like podcasting so perfectly fit a known energy like Mary’s! Love the podcast. Give it a try. (And Paul is not dead).
Fabulous even for those in their 40s
in iTunes by Nabvet from USA on April 24, 2016
Mary’s ability to find people with incredible stories to share combined with her skillful interviews, walking them through those stories for all of us to experience, is truly unique. You will laugh and cry and may even make important decisions because of what you learn from these incredible podcasts. Keep it up Mary we love this stuff!

I use podcasts to exercise with and found this one a few months back. I! LOVE! IT! I turned 50 this year and it’s like Mary has walked a mile in my orthodics and has given me hope to cope. I have been listening to her since the beginning show (I know, I know! I should have written areview earlier, but I am not near a computer when I listen to her and by the time I get home…well, 50 + memory = you do the math! Ü) I highly recommend it to anyone in midlife. I’ve even got my husband hooked!
in iTunes by Sister in song from USA on April 7, 2016
Mary’s interviews are insightful and dynamic. As a guest I was impressed with her work. As a listener to her many other podcasts, I am equally impressed and delighted! What a wealth of great information she is bring forth from real people with captivating stories and great advice.
What a breath of fresh air!
in iTunes by KCLAnderson from USA on March 30, 2016
Mary Rogers is doing an amazing thing with this podcast…no matter what subject she tackles, she does so with grace, humor, wisdom…and fabulous guests! Her interview with Shenandoah Chefalo blew me away! I can’t wait to read her book!

I just finished listening to the Future Stories podcast. What a great show. This is something I have really been trying to work on in my life. When you are trying to work on something, you notice how often it occurs in your conversations with other people. I am putting in the work and research to become a healthier person in my 50’s than I was in my 30’s or 40’s. It is a long road, but if you don’t start, you never reach the destination. The days are going to pass anyway, why not get to where you want to be? It surprises me in our culture how much we are programmed to expect poor physical health in our old age. My husband and I recently sold our home out of town and purchased a town house in town. We love being close to everything. We can walk to work and to most things in town. The main floor of our townhouse is on the second level. There was the option of putting in an elevator, but we chose not to. My theory is every bit of exercise helps. Many of our acquaintances have expressed that they feel we may have made a mistake at this point in our lives. They wonder what will happen when we can’t handle the stairs. My parents live on the second floor of a barn they have redone and take the stairs every day. They are 80 and 86. Both sets of grandparents lived in homes where the bedrooms were all on the second floor. They lived into their late 80’s and early 90’s. The houses of that generation all had bedrooms on the second floor. Somehow they managed. If you look at homes today, everyone is planning on not being able to walk up steps when they get old. Could it be that they can’t walk up steps because they don’t walk up steps? I had a client that couldn’t get up the curb to get to my office. I don’t want to end up like that. I will tackle those steps with gusto each and every day!
Fixing challenges. Great host
in iTunes by Richardrad from USA on March 2, 2016
What is your 2nd act in life? How do you pivot from your identity as a parent and full-time worker to a new identity as a life explorer? Mary dives in with honesty and open minded integrity to tackle the important stuff for folks in their 40’s and 50’s. A great answer to a midlife crisis… This is a solutions show, similar in spirit to “How Do We Fix It?” – the podcast we produce.
Everyone should be listening!
in iTunes by SKFitLife from USA on February 19, 2016
I’m so glad I found Mary’s podcast BEFORE mid life. So many lessons to be learned here leading up to my 50’s.

Every episode grabs me!!!!
Amazing information for 50+
in iTunes by NY Jo from USA on February 12, 2016
Brilliant podcast bringing “mid life” back to life. Mary asks the exact questions I would want to ask – always on point. Thanks for such an inspiring podcast!
Keeps me thinking!
in iTunes by IndeeFan from USA on January 23, 2016
I’m fairly new to listening to podcasts. This podcast is smart, entertaining and always makes me think. I find my self reflecting back… “I remember Mary discussing that on Experience 50”. the topics are relevant and current. Keep up the good work, Mary Rogers! Highly recommend.

Listening to this show is like sitting in a cozy living room with a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine) and chatting with friends about the stuff of our lives. I can always relate to the conversation which can be fun, funny, poignant or serious, but always real. Treat yourself to this podcast, you’ll feel better.
Mary is great

Perfect Podcast for the Ages!
in iTunes by Bonnie8 from USA on November 1, 2015
I must confess, I really didn’t get the whole “Podcast Thing.” Until I listened to Experience50! Funny, smart, educational, sassy, inspirational and exactly what I needed to stay, well, sane. This 50+ thing is interesting, nice to have friends along the journey. My favorite episodes, so far, are: Tom Gilbert and Dr. Brakeman. Give it a listen, great to listen to when traveling. Well done Mary Rogers, well done.

Mary is a terrific interviewer. Her program will draw you in, educate you, entertain you, and keep you wanting more.
Love Experience 50!
in iTunes by MardiNC from USA on October 25, 2015
I’m 54 and this is my favorite podcast. Love the topics, and the conversation between Mary and her guests is so comfortable I feel like I’m with friends.
in iTunes by tcklippsdad from USA on October 23, 2015
For those of us who are newly arrived in middle age (I’m currently 51) and can’t believe we’re already here, this is excellent advice from a variety of sources on how to live life to the fullest. Really excellent information that can be applied to your own life, and shared with others. Highly recommended!
Mary’s magic is captivating
in iTunes by CaptCruncher from USA on October 12, 2015
I am an Experience 50 addict not just because Mary talks about things I care about and what fuels me at 50 plus — and she does that so beautifully. Mary’s magic, the thing that sets her apart, is that in each episode she asks that one question or finds the one nugget in a conversation that makes me actually change how I think and helps me look at what is right in front of me in a different way. That is rare, special, and something I value so deeply!
in iTunes by FortiesDude from USA on October 6, 2015
I listen to a lot of podcasts and this one has awesome production quality, she knows what she’s doing! I really enjoy the conversations with “real people” dealing with everything that comes at us in midlife. Wish it was a daily show.
in iTunes by Steve Keyes from USA on October 5, 2015
I think I have listened to every podcast Mary has produced. I have taken something valuable away from every one. All are interesting and some spoke to me intimately about events in my own life. Mary is like that good friend who stops by just to talk.
in iTunes by Nancy Boese from USA on October 2, 2015
Great stories that inspire and help me learn from my peers. Nothing better than to listen and laugh, receive encouragement, and prepare for my next adventure.
Smooth Mary Rogers: Class Act
in iTunes by Nancy Perlin from USA on September 28, 2015
I can’t believe there is a podcast that talks so directly to me! Mary has really tapped into a missing link in talk/pod information. The topics have been very interesting and I am learning so much about the possibilities life has to offer in one’s 50’s. Mary has a warm and friendly manner, a great voice and a sharp intellect. I love her reactions and her curiosity. It’s like she’s a friend, or a cousin or something.
