Announcing the ‘Your Next Avenue’ Podcast

Richard Eisenberg hosts a new podcast about work and careers

Beginning today, Next Avenue readers can also be Next Avenue listeners. That’s because we are launching our first-ever podcast, which will be about a topic that we’ve learned is important to a large cross-section of our audience: Work and careers for people over 50. We call the free podcast Your Next Avenue and it’s being hosted by Richard Eisenberg, our Work & Purpose channel editor and the site’s managing editor.

You can stream or download the podcast episodes on this page of our website, or you can go to iTunes (or whatever other service you use for podcasts) and search for Your Next Avenue. We are beginning with two episodes — interviews with two of Next Avenue’s top experts on careers after 50, Kerry Hannon and  Nancy Collamer —and then will release episodes with new topics and guests every other week through June 2018. We hope this new means of storytelling will help our audience navigate the many peaks and valleys of work and careers, and we believe that it’s a quick, approachable way to learn something new. Episodes will always be around 20 minutes long, timed for you to listen on your morning commute or evening walk. Or you could just binge the entire season when you’re looking for something to listen to on a long drive or while cleaning out your closet.

Never listened to a podcast before? It’s easier than you think:

  • On Next Avenue, you can just visit this page, click on the episode you want to hear and then press play to listen immediately or click the download button (that square icon with the arrow pointing down).
  • If you want to listen on your iPhone or iPad, Apple offers a simple list of instructions. And if you like what you hear, please leave a positive review and rating on iTunes.
  • If you want to download to your Android or Samsung phone through Google Play, here’s how.
