Can baby boomers approach aging with the same spirit we used to redefine youth in the 60s and 70s? We think so, and Life (Part 2) helps point the way. In each episode, host Robert Lipsyte-author and former New York Times columnist-challenges, prods, and even jokes with experts on the art of aging, and he sits down with a wide range of "boomer" guests who tell us how to grow older with style.
