Thanks to the power of Google News Alerts and social media I just came across a fantastic interview with Dr. Bill Thomas from a few years ago that the Growing Bolder radio show has posted online as part of their growing pro-aging media community.
The interview focuses on the power of the Eden Alternative to transform elders’ lives and what needs to be done to spread the message. It’s a classic Bill Thomas clarion call to action — check it out:
I also highly recommend exploring the Growing Bolder online community. Growing Bolder was launched several years ago by a bunch of talented TV and media producers who got fed up with the mainstream media’s infatuation with crime and negative news. They launched Growing Bolder radio to “shine a spotlight on ordinary people doing extraordinary things after the age of 40.” Since then they’ve expanded into a nationally-syndicated radio and public television TV programs. Check out their story here and programming here.
