Everything is Fine
Everything is Fine
Tally Abecassis and Kim France
Everything is Fine is a series for women on life over 40. Hosted by former Lucky magazine founding editor Kim France and documentary filmmaker Tally Abecassis, each episode digs deep into the identity shift that comes with navigating this alternately weird and liberating stage of life. A chat-show with themed episodes and interview guests from the media and entertainment worlds, we tackle our fears, our health, our careers, self-care, and how to negotiate being called “middle-aged” when you feel anything but.
Being Creative
We've got Emily Flake, cartoonist, writer, performer, and illustrator, on the show this week. We're talking about the creative process, parent rage, the fun of talking about nightmares, the benefits of "gorgeous, tattered men," and a whole lot more.
