Fifth Episode Of bOLDer People Podcast


bOLDer People, a podcast from the University of Southern Indiana Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program, just released its fifth episode on June 24.  

bOLDer People, hosted by USI Professor of Gerontology Dr. Katie Ehlman, showcases and explores the dynamic lives of older adults in southwestern Indiana. In a new episode titled “Mr. Charles Goldman and Planning for Longevity,” Ehlman converses with Charles Goldman, an established board member at Solarbron Senior Living. Goldman worked in banking for 45 years at Old National Bank and National City Bank, both located in Evansville. He still maintains his own investments at age 96. From coming of age during World War II to the art scholarship he maintains in memory of his wife, Goldman has a wealth of interesting experiences. The two explore many topics during their conversation, including: 

  • How unique stories from Goldman’s past shape his outlook on life  
  • How to make sound choices in the present
  • How the future will always be unpredictable 

“I think this episode includes some of the best stories we’ve ever had a guest tell,” says Anthony Jay Porter, USI communications student, and producer of bOLDer People. “I’ve listened to this conversation many times, and I’m still not bored of it. Mr. Goldman has so much experience in his industry and is able to tell stories from his childhood that not many people today can. Our show really has something special here.”  

bOLDer People is available to download or stream for free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. New episodes will be available monthly. The podcast is produced on the USI campus with help from USI faculty, students and staff. For more information about bOLDer People, visit the podcast page on the USI website.
