Released Saturday, 1st September 2018
Good episode? Give it some love!
For almost 20 years, three-time author John Leland has been writing about the many different sides of retirement for The New York Times. Right now, more people are living past the age of 85 than any other time in history - and John set out to write a year-long series about them. He wanted to tell stories of people who fell in love in nursing homes, those who never remarried after losing their spouse or partner, people who were still together in old age, living with disabilities, facing illness, and more. John expected this to be a series about loss. What ultimately came out of this series, however, is a book entitled Happiness is a Choice You Make: Lessons From a Year Among the Oldest Old. Today, he joins the podcast from the heart of the Times newsroom to share takeaways, stories, and lessons that I found invaluable as a husband, a financial advisor, and a human being.
