A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

70 Over 70

Available on Apple Podcasts / Podcasts

That wisdom comes with age might be the kind of aphoristic idea that skeptics scoff at, but this podcast takes it in good faith. Hosted by Max Linsky, who is known for, among other things, the Longform Podcast, and produced by Pineapple Street Media, which Linsky co-founded, each episode is an interview with a person over 70—Norman Lear and Sister Helen Prejean have taken the mike, and Dionne Warwick, Madeleine Albright, and Dan Rather are slated for future weeks. Linsky’s questions are shamelessly earnest, tending toward the abstract and existential rather than the careers and accomplishments of his guests. But this inevitably steers the discussions into unexpected territory, and somehow away from the sentimental, making for a sideways, and unsurprisingly unsappy, look at the lives of these legends and the lessons they’ve learned along the way.—C.J.F.
