Description

Hosted by Doryn Wallach, It's Not A Crisis is a podcast for women in their late 30s and 40s who are navigating the joys and challenges of life and learning to make the most of it. With each episode, Doryn invites a different expert to join her in offering their best advice. Topics will include positive thinking, hormone health, sexual health, growing with your partner, style, tweens/teen advice, small business advice, dating after divorce, finding yourself, beauty and much more! Listeners can expect empathy, sharp insights, and plenty of totally honest (maybe even embarrassing) revelations.


“It’s easy to feel suddenly lost in this decade,” says Doryn. “We’re not young, but we’re definitely not old either. This is a podcast where we’ll figure it out together.”
