2016/6/9 Agism

Our guest today is Ashton Applewhite, author of This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Agism. We have an hour-long discussion of agism; the scourge of it, its omnipresence, how old people are effected, how internalized it is, its subtleties and its grossness. This an important conversation about a challenging aspect of elder life. The whole show addresses it, and Ashton provides an important service, by bringing this topic to a greater audience, and helping us focus in on it more.
