In this episode, I speak with Joanne Hayes Bozeman, soprano and co-author of the book Singing Through Change: Women's Voices in Midlife, Menopause, and Beyond. Joanne began experiencing troubling vocal changes around the age of 47, when "it felt like someone had put a different larynx in [her] neck." We speak about how this personal experience spurred her to do her research, write an anonymous article, connect with her co-authors, and how they went about the process of collecting and organizing these "deeply personal, complex, and kinda messy" stories. We also talk about how her early career as a prenatal educator and her work with adolescent girls' in a choir setting formed the matrix of her interests in female hormonal seasons.
