On this week’s podcast, we have good news for women: you improve with age. Dr. Louann Brizendine’s new book The Upgrade details how the female brain improves in the time of life typically known as menopause. We delve into how hormonal changes can actually help our productivity and why you can look forward to your 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond. That’s right, ladies: your best days are ahead.


Dr. Louann Brizendine is a neuropsychiatrist and author of the new book The Upgrade: How the Female Brain Gets Stronger and Better in Midlife and Beyond. She’s the Lynne and Marc Benioff Endowed Chair in Clinical Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco; founder of UCSF’s Women’s Mood and Hormone Clinic; and bestselling author of The Female Brain and The Male Brain.
