It’s time to have better conversations about aging. In Getting Real About Getting Older, co-hosts Anna Sale (Death, Sex & Money) and Jo Ann Allen (Been There Done That) invite listeners aged 60+ from around the country to call in and share what their lives are like right now, and what’s changed for them about aging during the past year. From financial instability to loneliness, pandemic concerns to shifting family and romantic relationships, there’s a lot about aging that’s confusing and isolating — particularly during a pandemic. Let’s talk about it. This is a co-production of WNYC and Colorado Public Radio.
Please note this event is audio only.
