Featured in this Show

  • Everything you need to know about ADHD

    October is ADHD Awareness Month. We learn what is happening in the brains of people with ADHD, myths about the disorder, resources, and why ADHD is underdiagnosed in women.

  • Why we need more retiree volunteers

    Volunteering after retirement has been proven to benefit your physical and mental health, in addition to benefiting your community. Still, only 21% of the country’s 70 million retirees volunteer. So why haven’t we been able to fully harness the power of such an experienced group? We talk to a philanthropy expert about the benefits of getting involved, and what we can do to make volunteering more accessible and appealing for seniors.
