Inside E Street 1004: The Graceful Exit

Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Ellen Goodman wrote her last column this year after nearly 50 years in journalism.  In it she talks of making the "Graceful Exit" to a new stage of life and quotes NPR’s Susan Stamberg.  When she stepped down as anchor of “All Things Considered,” she was asked what she was going to do next.  “Less” was her one word reply. 

In the midst of a longevity revolution, we talk with two women, both pioneering journalists, who are embarking on a journey to find meaning in the next stage of life.
