SORT BY Relevancy
Enjoy this May edition of Elder Chicks with Thelma Reese and Bobby Fleischer. We're thinking about how friends, colleagues, families handle sharp disagreements and maintain civility (or not). Is there a ripple effect in the larger community? Does it work the other way around, too? Tempers are fraying in this political year. Without being partisan, can we handle the disagreements among us, especially with social media and 24-hour news shows that must be filled.

Barbara M. Fleisher, EdD, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and the University of San Francisco, is a retired professor of education. She has worn many hats in her life: public school teacher, learning disabilities/reading specialist, child advocate, college professor in San Francisco, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia, and author.
Thelma Reese, Ed.D., retired professor of English and of Education, created the Advisory Council for Hooked on Phonics and was its spokesperson in the '90's. In that role, and as director of the Mayor's Commission on Literacy for the City of Philadelphia, she appeared frequently on television and hosted a cable show in Philadelphia. She was a founder of Philadelphia Young Playwrights, chaired the Board of Children’s Literacy Initiative, and organized the World Symposium on Family Literacy at UNESCO in Paris in 1994.
Together, they have created and maintain the blog, ElderChicks.com. They appear monthly on Rick Toquigny’s Life Lessons Radio- "America's Favorite Lessons Show" (Denver, CO) as he plumbs the ideas and opinions of the ElderChicks. They have conducted many workshops for and about women in their 60s and beyond, and have interviewed over two hundred women about their concerns as they face the new challenges of this stage in their lives –a stage different in so many ways from those faced by the generation that preceded them.
As the authors of The New Senior Woman: Reinventing the Years Beyond Mid-Life, published by Rowman & Littlefield in 2014, Drs. Fleisher and Reese provide a framework for spirited discussion of the concerns they found in conversations with over 200 women who range in age from 62 to 100, and come from all walks of life.
Elder Chicks celebrate the New Year. Join Thelma and Bobby for their first show of 2016. Call in and talk live with these two funny hosts that have an opinion on EVERYTHING.
We're thinking about how the internet has is propelling dramatic social changes. Even marriage announcements, we notice, sometimes mention the couple's having met through a (named) online dating service! What are the implications of all this? Are relationships more casual? Shallower? Deeper? Often anonymous? Lots of older people meeting this way when they are widowed or (increasingly) divorcing at advanced ages?
