The Second Act Last week we spent an hour talking about how the world's population is aging.. Wednesday, we look at how we don't necessarily have to lose a step as we get older. Many seniors continue working -- some because of economic necessity and some for fulfillment. There are also opportunities to volunteer or go back to school. Getting old isn't the same old thing anymore. Join host Mike McIntyre Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.
