When I'm 65 - Change Agents (Episode #2007)

KQED World: Tue, Oct 18, 2011 -- 6:00 AM

Boomers are proud that their support for civil rights propelled America into a more color-blind society. Their demand for Women's Rights in the seventies led to a radically changed workplace in one generation. Gay rights and immigrant rights movements are inspired and energized by Boomer's support of equal rights. There is a lot to be proud of, but what about the dream vs. the reality? How will the Generation's devotion to personal freedom play out in their old-age? Will they only fight on age issues, or will they be a change-agent for their children and grandchildren at the expense of their own comforts. Will they wake up to their natures and change the world as they cross the symbolic birthday of 65?

Pensions In Peril (Episode #2008)

KQED World: Tue, Oct 25, 2011 -- 6:00 AM

States and cities around the nation are facing huge budget pressures to keep services running while maintaining promises to pay their employees' retirement benefits. In some places, the crisis is so acute that serious cuts both in programs and pensions are necessary just to stay solvent.

Medicare Chief (Episode #2006)

KQED World: Tue, Oct 11, 2011 -- 6:00 AM

His critics paint him as an advocate of health care rationing. But Dr. Donald Berwick, who heads up the Federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), begs to differ. In a wide-ranging conversation with Inside E Street's Lark McCarthy, Berwick discusses the health care reform law and why he's been able to ignore the noise emanating from his critics. President Obama re-nominated him in January after Berwick became a lightning rod following his recess appointment last summer.

Gray Matters (Episode #2005)

KQED World: Tue, Oct 4, 2011 -- 6:00 AM

Now that you're over 50, do you misplace your car keys more often; walk into a room and wonder why you're there; search for your eyeglasses only to find them on top of your head? When these mental slips happen with increasing frequency, many aging baby boomers wonder if they're starting to "lose it". Inside E Street looks at what happens to the brain as it ages, the promise of memory pills, and what you can do to boost your brainpower.
