Did you know there are over 660,000 podcasts floating around in the world? Yep, you read that correctly: over half a million podcasts, eager for your ears.
So how do you find that needle in the haystack? Well, here’s a podcast I recommend, hands down, for anyone interested in the field of aging: it’s called Don’t Act Your Age (DAYA).
- DAYA is incredibly well-produced, entertaining and informative.
- And I’m a very picky listener.
- And… I don’t get paid anything for promoting this show.
Here’s how the folks at DAYA describe their content: “Don’t Act Your Age brings you stories and perspectives from people who’ve been there, done that and are still going strong. Folks who refuse to hit the snooze button on life. But it’s not just for older folks. Even if you haven’t made it to the half century mark yet, stick with us. Because DAYA is also about your journey — all that stuff just down the road in coming years. Think of it as an introduction to aging with a healthy dose of attitude.”
Not convinced? Try out this high-energy episode featuring an interview with Ashton Applewhite. Ashton is an activist and crusader against ageism. Her book, “This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Aging” has been called “Smart, sassy and oh so wise” by AARP and “full of all sorts of facts that erase many of the myths and beliefs about late life” by the artist Laurie Anderson.
