NPR looks at the ways retirement is changing, focusing on the ways work in some form is increasingly part of retirement. Many employees are choosing "gradual retirement," where employees stay working part-time for their old employer. Some people are being rehired out of retirement because their old companies need their expertise. Others are setting up new businesses in retirement and becoming entrepreneurs -- often for the first time. The series airs for three weeks starting March 18 on All Things Considered on witf.
Also take a listen to a recent episode of To the Best of Our Knowledge. It's the "silver tsunami" - the massive numbers of people now entering their senior years. And for all those now retiring? They’re trying to figure out what to do with the rest of their lives. This episode originally aired in January, you can hear it on-demand at their website.
