Susie Singer Carter Untangles Alzheimer’s in Film and Podcasts
Susie Singer Carter is a Los Angeles-based creative specializing in film and podcasting. She’s a writer, director, producer, and actress. She’s also an advocate for dementia caregivers having been on a journey with her own mother for 16 years. This inspired her to write, direct and produce the 2018 Oscar Qualified short film, “My Mom and the Girl,” starring Valerie Harper in her final performance.
She’s also the host and producer of the award-winning podcast “Love Conquers Alz,” launched in December 2019, which received Best Podcast 2020 from the New Media Film Festival for Episode 6 featuring Leeza Gibbons.
Susie is proud to have served as one of the faces seen in several awareness campaigns for Alzheimer’s Los Angeles, where she also trained to be a volunteer speaker.
Unfortunately, Susie’s beloved mother Norma Pecora passed away after we recorded this interview.
In this episode, we discuss her long, exhausting, enriching dementia journey, how it made her a “better person,” and the idea that Alzheimer’s is sort of like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
