The panel of women includes actor and comedian Lily Tomlin, her partner Jane Wagner, the gossip columnist Liz Smith, publisher and agent Joni Evans and Dr. Rachel Schindler, an expert on Alzheimer's disease. They are all frequent contributors to Women on the Web blog site. The conversation is wide-ranging and lively, from the latest developments in research to Tomlin’s uncle and his personality changes in dementia.
