Experience Talks Radio on KPFK-FM

Experience Talks Radio on KPFK-FM

is the weekly public radio program that shares the experience of dynamic baby boomers and beyond in a way that communicates across generations.

In a time when there is so much emphasis on the ephemeral – on passing trends, youth and novelty – we give a voice to those who’ve seen a few things, to discuss the subjects that make a difference in how we view ourselves and our world, and perhaps to discover the things that endure. We’ve come to learn that it’s not so much the age of our guests that unites them, but their ability to learn from and pass on experience. Experience in the hands of people like Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, actor Ed Asner, and playwright John Patrick Shanley leads to reflection, perspective, and – dare we say – wisdom. We know that age isn’t necessarily an indicator of wisdom, but it’s the Boomers and beyond who – like it or not – are now our village elders. In seeking out what the best of them have to say, we hope to give you, the listener, something to reflect on, to smile about, and to share with the people in your lives.
