Liverpool-born Angie McCartney published her first book at almost 83 years old, and several years later, is publishing again! She turned 90 in November 2019, the same month her second book, Your Mother Should Know was released, and is already planning her 91st birthday celebration—if her past parties are any indication, it should be quite a bash! In reflecting on the events of her life, Angie jokes that she is making plans to leave her brain behind, plugged in to AI, when she finally “pops her clogs”, and figures that if Eleanor Rigby could leave her face in a jar by the door, she might do the same with her brain (maybe it’ll be a bigger jar, though).
Along with daughter Ruth, and aided and abetted by son-in-law Martin Nethercutt, Angie launched a weekly live streaming show on Facebook called TEAFLIX Tuesdays in early 2018. The show has hosted a varied selection of guests including rockstars, writers, musicians, chefs, filmmakers, radio personalities, and even a 13-year-old who introduced the host to the world of slime—yes, that gooey stuff teens like to hurl with abandon on award shows.
