Description

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.
