Not Born Yesterday!
NEXT volunteers dip toes in the podcast waters.
NEXT Village is planning to host “Not Born Yesterday”, a podcast with a focus on issues of importance to Village members and well, anyone who is aging! Two of our volunteers, Lynn Winter Gross and Miriam Goodman, are behind the program, and both have extensive communication backgrounds in senior issues. They have already produced the first episode and are ready to launch an entire series.
Miriam has written extensively on senior issues and is the author of “Reinventing Retirement” and “Too Much Togetherness, surviving retirement as a couple.” She created and produced the first syndicated radio program on feminism, and hosted a program on senior issues for the Fromm Institute at USF. She also served as the Retirement Expert for an online magazine.
Lynn was director of communications for the community colleges of Los Angeles. She also worked with older adults who were seeking retraining for new careers. Lynn holds a Masters from USC in communications and currently counsels job seekers and gives seminars on ageism in the workplace.
The podcast, Not Born Yesterday, covers subjects such as
- What is a fiduciary and why would I need one?
- Why volunteer---advantages and opportunities
- Keeping your brain active
- Dealing with your adult children
- Solo aging
- Alternative housing options
Health and Aging (strokes, hearing, vision, cancer, etc)
If your company has a marketing budget, or you just want to get on board, please let us know. We are hoping to do 3-4 podcasts per month. We are using a studio in San Francisco, and using their equipment, but it’s the editing that runs up the tab.
We will post new episodes on our website and Facebook page, and we will send a special email every time one is released. We have an extensive list of show ideas, and we’re also super open to your suggestions.
Let us know what you think!
