What is Aging?

What is Aging? (click to listen)

In this, our third broadcast, the Radio 4 the Ages™ team (David Gwilt, Matt Weeden, and Jeanette Leardi) discuss the age-old question of “What is old?”.   We look at the question from several different perspectives and even take a few calls from our listeners.  Jeanette also gives us some informative commentary on the different types of aging.  Matt features inventor and innovator Stanley Mason.  David gives us a bit of “discourse” about his experience with AARP, and Krissa Palmer gives us another great Senior Moments piece that’s sure to put a smile on your face and maybe even inspire a few more Google users.  Give it a listen, and as usual…

Tune in. Call in. Get Involved!

Our Second Broadcast

Our Second Broadcast (click to listen)

In this show David, Jeanette, and Matt were joined in studio by this weeks special guest Debi Lee.  David gave some insight into his first car and the freedom that came with it, then we covered the topic of driving and whether it should be a right or privilege as well as how seniors deal with the possibility of losing their drivers license.  Jeanette talked about the senior-friendly public transportation she encountered while on her visit to Portland, OR.  Matt jumped into the topic of driver-less cars and the impact that new technology would have on our lifestyles and culture.  Krissa Palmer provided us with another great Senior Moments piece featuring a husband and wife that have been doing Hospice volunteering for over 25 years collectively.  Debi Lee, our guest from Centralina Area Agency on Aging, spoke with us a bit about Medicare and provided our listeners with some very helpful tips and resources.  As always, we had a blast at the studio and hope you enjoyed the show!
