Listen

Guests: Helen Fisher and Pepper Schwartz

Americans are living longer and increasingly, after the loss of a loved one either by death or through divorce, older folks are looking for love again.

This morning on Radio Times, it’s “love the second time around” with anthropologist HELEN FISHER and sociologist PEPPER SCHWARTZ.
