Today in Episode 12 of The Baby Boomers’ Gude to Life in the 21st Century we discuss Social Connections & Ageing with Professor Catherine Haslam from the University of Queensland and then two local older people who will discuss how this affects them in their lives on ‘The Punters’ Panel’.
Later in the episode, we talk to Marrickville’s own Grahame Bond – known to all of us as ‘Aunty Jack – about his formative cultural experiences in a segment called ‘Nostalgia Town’. ‘Nostalgia Town’ is a weekly segment where we hear a well-known older Australian talk about their formative cultural experiences.
And finally we speak with the Inner West Council’s Joint Senior Citizen of the Year for 2019, Jude Stoddart. Jude was honoured by Inner West Council for her volunteer work with the Assylum Seekers Centre in Newtown.
