No one knows what it’s like to be old until they get there. That’s the view of Ronni Bennett, a former radio producer in her 70s who also spent over two decades as a writer and producer in network television in New York City. These days Ronni is busy with her acclaimed blog “Time Goes By,” where she explores aging with humor, compassion and uncommon candor. Ronni tells us about the evolution of her blog and what’s good about getting older. She explains how media fuels America’s rampant ageism and she reflects on the Op-Ed piece, “Am I Going Blind?” by New York Times writer Frank Bruni. Ronni also tells us why she decided to write about her 2017 diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Note: this episode originally aired March 8, 2018. We have an update at the end of the show on Ronni’s condition and how cancer has changed her life.
