Event Description

There’s a lot about aging that’s confusing and isolating — particularly during a pandemic. So let’s talk about it with WNYC’s Death, Sex & Money podcast.

On Wednesday, co-hosts Anna Sale and CPR’s Jo Ann Allen will lead a national conversation about aging during a live call-in special called “Getting Real About Getting Older.” Death, Sex & Money invites people 60 and older to call 844-745-8255 to share what their lives are like right now and what’s changed for them about aging during the past year.

CPR News and KRCC will broadcast the two-hour show live starting at 6 p.m. MT on Feb. 3 — Find a signal near you or ask your smart speaker to “Play CPR News.”

“I think that people might suffer in silence when there’s the emotional tumult as an older person,” Allen told Death, Sex & Money during an episode released in October. “And I think a lot of older people let things eat them up, if you will. So older people’s inner lives, I do often want to know: What’s in there?”

Also listen to Allen’s own podcast Been There Done That, which tells real stories of the baby-boom generation.

Editor’s note: This show was initially scheduled to air live on Wednesday, Jan. 13.
