About Us

We have endless resources of wisdom all around us. In very close proximity, but often unnoticed. 70+ women in our society don't get the recognition and opportunity to share their inspiring and magical life stories and lessons with us. This podcast was created to change that. By Felicitas Hammerstein & Miriam Braun.

"You can't stop the clock. And when my mother turned 70 I was in my 30s. And I thought "oh my god that is so old, and I said to her how does it feel?"

Meet Marjorie Horowitz - a loving wife, mother and grandmother, a former NY cabdriver and a fighter of injustice since she is 12 years old.
