A Touch of Grey: The Talk Show for Grown Ups has been on the air either locally or in national syndication for more than two decades. It is one of the few radio talk shows openly and unabashedly targeted to addressing the needs and interests of America’s “seasoned” citizens (and their families). I had a great time speaking with Carole. We touched on several topics that I believe will be incredibly helpful to seniors and their families. In case you missed it, check out the podcast on Carole's website.
