9/13/21: “Koach” Dave, Master Fitness Trainer from Well Past Forty | KABOOMING INTO YOUR NINETIES | Aging Today with Mark Turnbull
This week on the Aging Today podcast, I interviewed “Koach” Dave, a master fitness trainer from Well Past Forty. He explains how everyone from Boomers to 90-somethings can boost their fitness. Why just age when you can Super-Age? It’s a question that led David Frost, a.k.a. “Koach Dave,” to develop his KABOOMER vitality program. His message to Boomers and beyond is “make the most of your encore years!” Dave explains that the party of your golden years is just getting started. Whatever your age, fitness level, or medical condition, it’s time to invest in your physical bank and super-age with KABOOMER STAMININETY! Dave’s philosophy is that it’s always better to take two steps at a time rather than two pills at a time.

8/9/21: Erin McCune, co-founder of Easeenet.com | WHAT IS DIGITAL ESTATE PLANNING? | Aging Today with Mark Turnbull from ComForCare Portland
This week on the Aging Today podcast, I interviewed Erin McCune, co-founder of Easeenet.com. Erin explains digital estate planning and how it can effortlessly organize your online life.
Honestly, I don’t know anyone who enjoys the task of finding and organizing all their important documents, official records, account numbers, and passwords, then keeping them constantly updated and in perfect order. And because some of us avoid all that paperwork, it can be challenging to find things when you need them, and often impossible for an appointed family member to sort things out when we’re gone. Well, that whole mess has gotten a lot easier thanks to a digital overhaul that eliminates most of the paperwork. Finally, thousands of us can retire those 30-year-old, not-very-secure filing cabinets and move up to something better. Don’t miss this show – you’ll kick yourself if you do! AgingToday.us
