Season 5 Trailer: We’re Back at It, Unraveling What It Means to Be [B]OLDER

Oct 14, 2022


[B]older is back for season 5 and we’re back at it, unraveling what it means to make the most of growing older.



Each episode is a frank 30-minute conversation with a best-selling author, expert, or exceptional individual on a topic related to aging. 

For host Debbie Weil, 70, it’s a real-time exploration of growing old. But don’t worry; she’s not embracing old age just yet. She’s still (boldly) figuring things out. She asks the hard questions about how to use this later stage of life to create, to find meaning, and to make a difference. 

In the podcast Debbie delves into all the current  topics related to aging: the unretired life, reinventing work, slowing down, aging better, ageism, living your purpose, grownup gap years, grandparenting, intergenerational collaboration, effects of the pandemic, grief and widowhood, surviving cancer, and more. As well as other stuff that piques her interest; for example, the craft of writing. 

Her husband, physician author Sam Harrington, is a popular recurring guest. The Debbie & Sam shows feature his dry humor and medical expertise. 

Join us for another great season diving into what it means to be growing [b]older!
