August 30 - The future of retirement, island fever, "Bewitched!", diabetes, crazy ants!

The Future of Retirement!

In 1999, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology opened the AgeLab which develops technologies that improve health and mobility as we age. One of their inventions is the Age Gain Now Empathy System. Also known as AGNES, this is a suit that replicates what it's like to be a person in their mid-70s and the physical challenges associated with aging. Director of MIT's Age Lab, Joe Coughlin, joins us in our studios to discuss this high tech wardrobe.

IslandSpreading Island Fever

There's nothing quite like the thought of escaping to an island - either for a vacation or even to live - that is completely transformational. Edward Chamberlin is a world renowned scholar and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. He is the author of Island: How Islands Transform the World and joins us to explore this phenomenon.


Fifty years ago, Bewitched launched onto our television screens. After eight seasons, 23 Emmy nominations, and 254 episodes, the show gracefully ended, but its popularity endures to this day. Erin Murphy, fondly known as Tabatha, talks about this iconic show and what magic she's up to these days!

Diabetes Break ThroughDiabetes

Dr. Osama Hamdy is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and the Medical Director of the Obesity Clinical Program at Joslin Diabetes Center. He is also the co-author of The Diabetes Breakthrough, and joins us to discuss preventing, improving, and even reversing Diabetes.

Crazy Ants!

The Crazy Rasberry Ant!? Tom Rasberry joins us to explain!
