I recorded many episodes in December with more planned for early January including interview of the owner of the website housesitmexico.com, Brenda Bernstein author of the best selling LinkedIn book How to Write a Killer LinkedIn Profile, another can Phil repurpose his career series, I am sure I will call him Phil, Danielle Kunkle Roberts from Boomer Benefits to explain Medicare at 50, not Medicare for All but Medicare at 50 and much more. My plan was to publish only 2 episodes in January but if all goes well I will be back to a weekly publication schedule this month. Therefore, next week will be an encore episode with the most popular episode in the last 2 years, which was episode 78 when I interviewed Jonathan Rauch, author of ​The Happiness Curve: Why Life Gets Better After 50. This episode has been downloaded close to 2500 times since it’s release in May of 2018 and continues to get 15-30 downloads per month. It is a fascinating interview.
