As I wrote last February, I traveled then to St. Paul to tape three episodes of a PBS series about aging titled, Life (Part 2). As their website describes it,
“Each week, Life (Part 2) offers ideas, insights, conversation - and of course, humor - on aging vitally and vibrantly. Each week’s episode will explore issues facing the 26% of the American population who are 55 and older. Hosted by actor (and backgammon champ) Alan Rosenberg, guests and contributors bring smarts, humor and experience to the art and science of aging.”
This is an important series with a wide variety of topics and viewpoints from some fascinating folks about getting older, and I’m not saying that just because I appear on it or because the producers are old friends of mine.
The series begins airing this week on throughout the United States, but it is broadcast in different cities on different dates and at different times, and may not start until later in the summer in some places. There is a Zip Code search to find out when and where you can find it in your town.
More cities are being added every week so if you happen to see it and have something to say, please come back and post a comment.
Shameless plug: Although there are about 12 or 13 episodes in all, the titles of ones I appear in are:
Adapting to Change
Men vs. Women
I’ll be posting more about the series in the near future.
