Aging Gratefully
Dr. Peter Brill

In your 50's? 60's? What are you going to do with the rest of your life to make it TWICE as fun? Are you looking for a dream? Have a dream but not the motivation to pursue it? Crave more meaning and fulfillment in your life? Or are you having a great time moving into the third age of your life and want to connect with others like yourself? If the answer to some of these questions is yes, you need to tune in to the experts on "Aging Gratefully," co-hosts Dr. Peter Brill and David Debin, the heartfelt duo that wants to be with you every step of the way in creating and informing the life you want today and going forward.

Hear famous and important people in all the fields related to human development and aging. Authors, educators, business leaders, visionaries, and spiritual leaders are among the guests who share their knowledge, wisdom and sense of humor with the Doctor and The Man From Hollywood.

From these different perspectives, our hosts take on the problems and advantages of the Third Age; your first age is childhood, your second age is building your career and raising your family, and your Third Age is the rest of your life - the time dedicated to finding deeper meaning and fulfillment, to renewed passion, purpose and joy.

Co-host Peter Brill is an MD, a psychiatrist and an entrepreneur who ran two companies and taught simultaneously at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School and the Wharton School of Business. He retired at the age of 54 and is here to share his advice on continuing to make new trysts with life after retirement.

The doctor's partner is David Debin, a former Hollywood producer and writer as well as a multi-published novelist who achieved big-time success in Hollywood where he lived the glamorous life for three decades before retiring in favor of spiritual pursuits. David's soulful perspective and fabulous attitude will warm your heart on every show.
