1. How can aging be a good thing? What happens to the relationships between adult children and their parents? How can we manage loss as we age? Can there be romance in the senior years? Wise Aging: Living with Joy, Resilience, & Spirit is the new book from Rabbi Rachel Cowan and Dr. Linda Thal. Cowan and Thal discuss “active aging” for this generation of people who are living longer, healthier lives. Listen to the podcast here.
2. Family, friendship, love, loss, big secrets, and lots of wine…all set in Sonoma County. It’s Eight Hundred Grapes, the new novel from Laura Dave, author of The First Husband, The Divorce Party, and London is the Best City in America. Listen to the podcast here.
3. Infinitely Polar Bear is the new film from writer-director Maya Forbes. She wrote the story based on her own childhood experience of living with her sister and bipolar father while her mother went back to graduate school to help provide a good life for the family. Listen to the podcast here.
