Inside E Street

When I’m 65

5 views from five boomers

The first splash of the boomer wave hits the symbolic retirement age of 65 in 2011.  Inside E Street looks into what that means for boomers individually, as a generation, and for the broader society as well.  Selfish navel-gazers or generous optimistic activists?

On this episode of Inside E Street, a group of leading-edge boomers shares its take on the generation’s impact and future plans.  We talk with five members of the class of 1964 at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia.

Lark McCarthy also talks with  Ken Dychtwald, president and CEO of Age Wave and author of A New Purpose, Ellen Goodman, former syndicated columnist, and Neil Howe, president of LifeCourse Associates.

This is the first of an occasional series of Inside E Street broadcast, of When I'm 65.
