X55: Aging with Purpose with David Shapiro

By September 17, 2021February 2nd, 2023No Comments

Getting old is weird. Collectively we treat it like a disease. And I get why, most people live lifestyles that inevitably lead to disease, so we assume correlation is causation.

It’s easy to fall into complacency, consumption, cynicism.

The harder route is the one we take responsibility for, with choice, curiosity, and courage.

But what’s really more difficult? The choice that takes more work now but leads to a fulfilling life? Or the one that takes no effort now but creates a life you’d rather not be living?

And how do we make a choice to experience aging with purpose?

That’s what we’re talking about today.

Our guest is David Shapiro, philosopher, educator, and writer whose work consistently explores matters of meaning, purpose, and equity.
