Hello lovely listeners! Welcome to another insightful episode of Confessions of an Aging Ingenue with your super-duper host, Jenni Tooley. 

As always, I am excited to be on this side, recording these amazing episodes, and I’m thrilled to have you on the other side, listening and I hope, getting inspired!

So, I’ve got news… It’s the season finale for season two! And we're wrapping up this season of Confessions of an Aging Ingenue with a very special episode. But, if you want this season to keep going, make your voice heard! I’ll even take requests, whoa. So, if you want an encore, let me know.

Now, let's get to it. Today’s topic might surprise you: colonoscopies. Yep, we’re going there! If you’re listening to this on the day it drops, I’m either in the middle of getting one or recovering from it. So please, send good vibes my way for a speedy recovery.

In this episode, I'll share my experiences with screenings, the hilarious concept of mailing poop (thanks, Cologuard!), and the importance of getting checked, especially if you're over 50. It's all about taking care of ourselves, despite the fears and awkwardness.

From dealing with a little bleeding that led to this colonoscopy to the anxiety of asking for help, I'm laying it all out there.

We don't talk about this enough, and there's a lot of stigma around it. But it's so important, especially as we get older. And today, I’m being vulnerable and sharing my experiences, my fears, and some funny moments about dealing with this procedure. Trust me, you’ll want to hear this.

This episode is a mix of laughs, fears, and a whole lot of real talk about health and aging. It’s a perfect, if not quirky, way to end the season.

So, grab your favorite drink, get comfy, and let’s dive into the not-so-glamorous, but oh-so-important world of colonoscopies.
