They were taken to separate hospitals in New York City.She never got to say good-bye.He died two days before she was released from the hospital and went home to her apartment.As she tells Debbie on the podcast:"There were his slippers next to the bed. There was a pair of his drugstore eyeglasses. He seemed to have vanished and that was the sense I tried to depict in (the final) story (of her new book). Disappearance rather than dying." She was encouraged to write through her grief, and to write this story and add it to a new collection, by her daughters: New York Times bestselling novelist Meg Wolitzer and artist Nancy Wolitzer.She titled the new story, "The Great Escape." It is as diamond sharp and perfect - and funny - as her earlier writing.

Today, Debbie speaks with Paula Span, a veteran journalist and the author since 2009 of the New York Times' column, The New Old Age. The column explores, as the Times' puts it, “the unprecedented challenges posed by a rapidly aging population.” That's a pretty broad topic so Paula covers everything from the cost of growing older, to social security for same sex couples, to stubborn aging parents, to the evolving status of medical aid in dying (MAID), formerly known as death with dignity. In 2017, after becoming a grandmother, she added a second Times column, Generation Grandparent. She's adapted those essays for her audiobook “The Bubbe Diaries,” released by Audible in 2021.She's also a revered professor of journalism, having taught at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism for over two decades. She is the author of “When the Time Comes: Families with Aging Parents Share Their Struggles and Solutions,” published by Hachette.She and Debbie talk about how she explores the topic of pernicious ageism for the Times - not with personal opinion - but with research and data and expert interviews. Each of her columns get a huge response with readers leaving as many as 500 comments.  They talk about her approach to writing as a freelance journalist (always say YES, she tells Debbie, no matter what the assignment is). And they talk about her artful approach to grandparenting. She lives in Montclair, N.J., and travels to Brooklyn once a week to care for her granddaughter.This is an intriguing behind-the-scenes peak at writing for the Times from a veteran journalist. Mentioned in this episode or useful:Paula Span - WebsiteThe New Old Age, Paula's column for The New York TimesGeneration Grandparent, Paula's occasional column for The New York TimesThe Bubbe Diaries by Paula Span (Audible, 2021)When the Time Comes: Families with Aging Parents Share Their Struggles and Solutions by Paula Span (Hachette, 2009)Paula Span at Columbia Journalism SchoolTallying the Cost of Growing Older by Paula Span (The New York Times, October 3, 2021)For Terminal Patients, the Barrier to Aid in Dying Could be a State Line (The New York Times, Nov. 13, 2021)Sally TannenBreaking the Age Code: How Your Beliefs About Aging Determine How Long and Well You Live by Becca Levy PhD (William Morrow, 2022)Nanaville: Adventures in Grandparenting by Anna Quindlen (Random House Trade Paperbacks; Reprint edition 2020)Jane E.

Today, Debbie talks with Dr. Bree Johnston, a geriatrician and a palliative care physician who is also certified in psychedelic therapies.In case you haven't noticed, the topic of psychedelic therapy has gone mainstream in the past several years. Taking a guided psilocybin trip is now viewed as a highly effective way to ease fear of dying. But it's complicated. It took Debbie several months to find just the right person to interview about the therapeutic benefits of psychedelics. Her research led her to Dr. Bree Johnston who is perfectly credentialed for this topic as well as being a notably clear and wise teacher for [B]OLDER podcast listeners. She's been a practicing physician for 35 years and recently became certified in Psychedelic Therapies and Research through the California Institute of Integral Studies.They talk about:- The problem of legality (she predicts psilocybin therapy will be legal in a few years)- Why psychedelic therapy is especially useful for older, dying patients- Her own psychonaut experiences- The dissolution of "self" and becoming part of a whole (a common experience on a psychedelic trip)- The current studies being done at Johns Hopkins and NYU- Microdosing- And her evaluation of which psychedelic therapies are currently most useful: psilocybin, MDMA (aka ecstasy), ketamine (not illegal but results can vary widely).They also explore the complexity that comes with medicalizing psychedelics as well as the ethics surrounding legalization.  This is a highly informative conversation with a knowledgeable physician. Mentioned in this episode or useful:Dr. Bree Johnston on LinkedInThe Trip Treatment by Michael Pollan (The New Yorker; February 5, 2015)How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence by Michael Pollan (Penguin Press; 2018)The Pied Piper of Psychedelic Toads by Kimon de Greef (The New Yorker; March 21, 2022)Berkeley Center for the Science of PsychedelicsPsychedelic Therapy Training Certificate | California Institute of Integral StudiesThe Microdose NewsletterNew York Magazine Investigative Podcast: Cover Story: Power TripJohns Hopkins Center for Psychedelic and Consciousness ResearchCenter for Psychedelic Medicine | NYUA Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life by Ayelet Waldman (Knopf; 2017)Brian Anderson - Studies at UCSFSacred Knowledge: Psychedelics and Religious Experiences by William Richards (Columbia University Press; 2015)Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies - MAPSMAPS NewsletterHandbook of Medical Hallucinogens by Charles Grob and Jim Grigsby (The Guilford Press; 2021)Note from DebbieIf you've been enjoying the podcast, please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts.

Debbie talks with five-time New York Times bestselling author Dan Pink about his latest book: The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward. His books have been translated into 42 languages and have sold millions of copies around the world. She met Dan many years ago when she lived in DC and has been a fan ever since she read his first book, Free Agent Nation. That book was one of the first to legitimize solopreneurs and to predict the revolution in the workplace.The premise of his new book is that while many people (especially Americans) proclaim "I have no regrets!" that statement is wrongheaded and, as Dan delights in pointing out, simply not true. We all have regrets and regret is a valuable emotion that can lead us to better understand ourselves and even to live our lives differently.The book is partially based on the results of Dan's World Regret Survey. He read through 15,000 replies from 100+ countries and deduced that there are really only four core regrets.Foundational (If only I'd done the work... )Boldness (If only I'd taken the chance... )Moral (If only I'd done the right thing... )Connection (If only I'd reached out... )Debbie went into this episode thinking that "regret" has a special resonance for those past midlife who may be reflecting on what lies behind them - or what DOESN'T lie behind them - because they didn't do it.But Dan is pretty clear that regretting an inaction - what he defines as a Boldness regret - can come at any age. And that it's never too late to do something about it.Debbie reveals one of her biggest regrets to Dan and he offers some on-air therapy for how she should deal with it.They also talk about Dan's "failure resumé" and what he learned from it.This is an entertaining and informative episode. But it doesn't cover everything in Dan's new book. Be sure to pick up your own copy to learn more about self-disclosing, self-compassion, and self-distancing when it comes to your own regrets; when to "undo" something you did in the past; and the importance of maintaining connections with friends.Mentioned in this episode or useful:DanPink.comThe Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward by Dan Pink (Random House 2022)Dare to Lead (Brené Brown's podcast): Brené With Dan Pink on the Power of RegretA 2-minute preview of his new book (a Pinkcast)World Regret SurveyAll Dan's books: When, To Sell Is Human, Drive, A Whole New Mind, Johnny Bunko, Free Agent Nation@DanielPink on TwitterTHE PINKCASTSubscribe to Dan's newsletterDerek SiversBittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole by Susan Cain (Crown 2022)The Happiness Curve: Why Life Gets Better After 50 by Jonathan Rauch (Thomas Dunne Books 2018)Alfred NobelThe Moral Bucket List by David Brooks (The New York Times, April 11, 2015) Note from DebbieIf you've been enjoying the podcast, please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts.

But it is a reality for many married women after age 65. She invited Suzanne, a new friend in coastal Maine, on the show to learn more about how she is handling the experience.Suzanne's husband Don passed away in August of 2020 after what she calls a 46-year love affair. The early stages of grief were awful, she tells us. But then she realized she still had a lot of energy and wanted to do something with it. Thus was born her blog, titled Aging Fearlessly. Suzanne has also created a new nonprofit, Maine Widows in Action, to support and educate widows who want to be change agents in their communities and beyond. It's a perfect match for her background as a retired public interest attorney.This is a nuanced conversation about loneliness, pain, bravery, opportunity, and practicality.  Mentioned in this episode or useful:Aging Fearlessly blogMaine Widows in ActionReimagining ‘widowhood' in the 21st CenturyCraftsman creates works of art that help people walk about Don Carmichael's cane making (Ellsworth American 2018)'Aging Fearlessly' blog tackles interesting topics for seniors (NewsCenter Maine) Note from DebbieIf you've been enjoying the podcast, please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts.

Debbie hands over the mic to her producer, Julie-Roxane Krikorian, for a deep dive on the conversations we need to have with ourselves and our loved ones about old age and dying. Together, they unpack the difference between theory and practice when it comes to these emotionally-loaded conversations. They talk about the challenges of becoming weaker and more vulnerable as our bodies decline, and the flipping of the dynamics of care between parents and children at the end of life.They discuss the difficulty of giving space to our aging parents all the while trying to support them with practical help. They also talk about a reframe from weakening to softening and how to become elders who lead the way into the unknown of aging and dying.Debbie shares her personal journey with this topic as a daughter, a big sister of four, and a mother of three. She even reveals what her “dream death” is. This is a real and honest account of Debbie's experiences and, we believe, a useful conversation to anyone navigating the complex waters of aging parents and aging ourselves.Don't worry, there's plenty of humor.  Mentioned in this episode or useful:S4-EP5: Debbie and Julie-Roxane Dissect How Reinventing Your Life Really WorksS3-EP25: Debbie Weil on Turning 70, Mortality, and Making the Most of Growing OlderThe FAR OUT Podcast: Julie-Roxane's podcast with her husband Alasdair Note from DebbieIf you've been enjoying the podcast, please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts.

Debbie Weil brings Nicholas Christakis back on the show  for an update on all things COVID. Their conversation one year ago was one of the most popular episodes of Season 3. Nicholas is a Sterling Professor of Social and Natural Science at Yale. He's a physician, a sociologist, and a public health expert and he's the bestselling author of several books, including, most recently, Apollo's Arrow, about the coronavirus pandemic. The book is out in paperback, with a new Preface and a new Afterword. Debbie wanted to ask Nicholas where are we now with the COVID-19 pandemic, where are we going, and what does this all mean in an historical context.She could listen to Nicholas all day as he weaves together the history, the science, the epidemiology, the psychology and the sociology of pandemics, or plagues as he calls them. Not surprisingly, he's an in-demand expert for commentary about the coronavirus pandemic. Vaccines were widely available when the two spoke a year ago. Debbie, like many others, thought that meant the beginning of the end of the pandemic. Not quite, Nicholas said at the time. He was spot on in his predictions, saying that not until 2024 would the pandemic be behind us. A year later, he says we are finally through phase one of the pandemic. He expects we'll reach herd immunity several months from now.He and Debbie discuss Long COVID, whether we should still be wearing masks, the continuing importance of getting thrice vaccinated, what metric to pay the most attention to (number of deaths per day),  addressing disinformation around this pandemic, and more. He notes that historically there has been a confluence of disasters associated with plagues, including war, famine, and climate change.When the war against Ukraine erupted, he was astounded but also not surprised. World War I accompanied the 1918 pandemic. This time, Ukraine and climate change are the accompanying global disasters.Nicholas ends by reminding us that plagues are not rare and may continue to become more present in our lifetime – but that we have the tools and technology to get through them.Tune in for a fascinating conversation about where we are now with the COVID pandemic. About Nicholas ChristakisWikipediaTwitterYale UniversityTed TalksHuman Nature Lab at YaleMentioned in this episode or useful:New paperback edition: Apollo's Arrow: The Profound and Enduring Impact of Coronavirus on the Way We Live by Nicholas Christakis (Little, Brown Spark, Oct. 2021) [B]OLDER S3-EP21: Nicholas Christakis on How the Pandemic Will Affect Your Life Until 2024 COVID Will Reshape Humanity (interview with Amanpour & Co., Dec. 21, 2021)  Note from DebbieIf you've been enjoying the podcast, please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts.

Bradley Schurman on Our Aging Population and How It Could Eradicate Ageism

Today Debbie speaks with Bradley Schurman about the megatrend of an aging population, both in the U.S. and globally. Bradley is a demographic futurist and the author of a provocative new book: The Super Age: Decoding Our Demographic Destiny.The aging of our population represents the intersection of two other megatrends: decreased birth rates and increased longevity. The numbers are staggering: By 2030, one out of five Americans will be over 65. To put it another way, In the next two years the number of those 65 and over, in the U.S., will be equal to those under 18. So what does this mean? Well it's complicated. Obviously it means that society needs to adapt and to change. But Debbie's question to Bradley is, will it - and how long will it take? There are so many interrelated factors.In his book he talks about the economy (the impact on social security and medicare and more), societal attitudes (meaning ageism), workplace policies, lifetime education and training, housing, geography (urban vs. rural), advertising and marketing, and the startling inequities in longevity between the well off and the poor and between races.In their conversation they focus on the workplace and the changes that will have to happen in order for businesses and the economy to thrive. Bradley is an incorrigible optimist, as you'll hear, and Debbie so very much wants to believe him. In his future scenario older workers will be welcomed into the workforce well past retirement age, both society and government will change how older people are viewed and treated, and older people will move from the sidelines where they are now, often seen as expendable and not useful, to center stage. Bradley says this can happen in a decade. Debbie is skeptical about how fast we'll see change. Lots to think about in this conversation and in Bradley's new book.  Mentioned in this episode or useful:The Super Age: Decoding our Demographic Destiny by Bradley Schurman ‎(Harper Business 2022)Why  Boomers May Be the Answer to the Big Quit by Bradley Schurman (Newsweek, Feb. 16, 2022)Bradley on Twitter The Super Age™About — The Super Age™Betty WhiteIris Apfel Note from DebbieIf you've been enjoying the podcast, please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts.

Today, Debbie talks to Richard Eisenberg, a veteran journalist and author who has covered careers and personal finance for 40+ years. Richard recently "unretired," as he puts it, from his 10-year run as managing editor of Next Avenue, the comprehensive online news source for Boomer and Gen X Americans.As a journalist, he's made it his mission to cover money, work and purpose in a way that is useful and practical and lessens readers' stress. Debbie wondered how he would apply this approach to his own next chapter. Not surprisingly, he has a pragmatic plan for how to put together the pieces of "what's next” for himself.He tells us that his unretired life will include some work - writing and editing - but as a freelance. He also wants to mentor, travel, and spend more time with his sons on the West Coast. That's the plan so far but how it will all fit together is yet to be seen.And that's a little scary.No matter.  As you'll hear, Richard is okay with taking small steps and experimenting to find the right balance. In other words, he is practicing what he's been preaching to readers for decades. Debbie agrees with much of what Richard says so there's not much drama in this episode but it's a lovely and relaxed conversation.He and Debbie talk about the persistence of ageism in our society and the deeply entrenched “decline” narrative. And they delve into what has become a new meme: the 100-year-life and what it means from a policy and financial perspective. Richard reminds Debbie that health-span is a better concept than age span. Mentioned in this episode or useful:BioNext AvenueTwitterPodcast: Friends Talk Money  Richard's new "Unretired" column for Market WatchI left my job at age 65 and I don't want to retire -- what's next? by Richard Eisenberg, Marketwatch, February 16 2022  Selection of Richard's articles for Next AvenueNext Avenue's Managing Editor Says Goodbye — But Not Farewell (Next Avenue, January 4, 2022)Overcoming Unconscious Age Bias: An Expert's Advice (Next Avenue, November 23, 2021)Sorry, Nobody Wants Your Parents' Stuff (Next Avenue, February 9, 2017)My Mom's Lasting Legacy (Next Avenue, September 6, 2012)Blue Zones, Part 1: How the World's Oldest People Make Their Money Last (Next Avenue, April 2, 2019)Blue Zones, Part 2: How the World's Oldest People in Asia and Europe Make Their Money Last (Next Avenue, April 9, 2019)How the Oldest People in America's Blue Zone Make Their Money Last (Next Avenue, April 16, 2019) BooksThe Money Book of Personal Finance by Richard Eisenberg (‎Warner Books 1998)How to Avoid a Mid-life Financial Crisis by Richard Eisenberg (‎Penguin Books 1988)  Also mentioned:[B]OLDER S4-EP6: Debbie & Sam on Entering the Land of the Old: Plans & Challenges For Their Eighth DecadeThe Big Middle Podcast with Susan FloryThe Honeymoon Phase of Retirement (Hartford Funds, December 24 2020)Century Lives - at Stanford Center for Longevity podcastLife is in the Transitions: Mastering Change at any Age by Bruce Feiler (Penguin Books 2021)Retirement Stepping Stones: Find Meaning, Live with Purpose, and Leave a Legacy by Tony Hixon (‎River Grove Books 2021) Note from DebbieIf you've been enjoying the podcast, please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts.

If you're a public figure (and even if you aren't), it can be hard to try something new; some onlookers will always be quick to tell you to “stay in your lane.” Hillary's experienced that, from working as a lawyer and advocate, to becoming First Lady, then running for office herself, serving as Senator and Secretary of State, and more recently writing a best-selling political thriller and becoming a podcast host!   On today's episode, Hillary talks to two women who have dared to step outside the box we put them in, by switching gears in their lives and in their careers. World champion track and field runner Allyson Felix did that when she became an advocate for Black maternal health and better protections for women athletes. And actor, singer, author, and advocate Vanessa Williams has done it over and over again, ever since she was throned, and then dethroned, as Miss America back in 1983.  Bios: Allyson Felix is the most decorated woman in Olympic track and field history. In 2018, after a life-threatening pregnancy, she became a vocal advocate on Black maternal health. In 2021, Felix launched Saysh, a lifestyle footwear company. Vanessa Williams is a Grammy and Emmy Award winning and Tony Award nominated artist who's released eight best-selling albums, appeared in dozens of films and TV shows, written two books, and released two clothing lines. She first emerged on the national stage in 1983, when she became the first Black woman to be crowned Miss America, but was then forced to resign after Penthouse magazine published risqué photos of her without her consent. In 2021, she helped found Black Theater United to push for greater equity, diversity and inclusion on Broadway.  You can find a full transcript HERE.

Today, Debbie talks with Suzanne Watkins, a friend she met in Baja, Mexico in 2019.  After years working a typical 9-5 in the travel industry where she helped others plan their adventures, Suzanne experienced a health crisis that led her very close to death. That experience, she said, taught her very tangibly that she is mortal, and now was the time for her to live her dreams. She applied for flight attendant positions at age 60 in an attempt to radically reinvent her life and work. The rest is history!Together Debbie and Suzanne talk about her process waking up and making a real change, how it worked for her getting a new job at age 60 having no prior experience and the brutally hard bootcamp she had to attend to get trained for the job. Suzanne tells us about the joys, the experiences and the challenges of this new life; and we end with her advice for those thinking about reinventing themselves. Mentioned in this episode or useful:Omni Air InternationalGetting Your Wings at 60 by Suzanne Watkins (Wisdom Well)Trazedone as a sleep aidNote from DebbieIf you've been enjoying the podcast, please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts.
