Tara Gadomski: Exposing the futility of 'anti-aging'

Anti-aging - who needs it?  Surely, striving to master or embrace the aging process is better than trying to defy it.  It is a philosophy we at Live Long and Master Aging share with Tara Gadomski, writer, filmmaker and director of a new short film, Signs of Aging. The story explores, through dark humor, the methods used to sell so-called anti-aging products to older women. A powerful message emerges about the appreciation of life over vanity. In this LLAMA podcast interview, with Peter Bowes, Tara explains her distaste for what she calls the shaming of older people, who’re beginning to show their age.
