Listen to Debbie’s podcast!

{Update from Sam} If you are wondering where Debbie has been over the past few months while I’ve been pontificating here on the blog (don’t worry; I will continue to do so in the future), she has not crawled under a rock. In fact, she has been working hard on her podcast, The Gap Year Podcast.

She launched the podcast almost two years ago, calling it Gap Year For Grown-Ups. But it has morphed over the course of two seasons into a broader concept: the collective gap year we are all living through right now because of COVID.

The episodes are short, generally less than 30 minutes, which works for me.  She interviews interesting individuals, experts, and authors (including yours truly), on topics ranging from aging and health in the time of COVID to the challenge of  reinventing yourself at midlife.

Here are some recent episodes
