with host TIM CARPENTER
MATT PERRY – Journalist, filmmaker, actor and storyteller Matt Perry has had a 6-year tenure at the California Health Report and created the “Aging With Dignity” news blog. He has interviewed some of the leading thinkers about some of the most critical issues of aging. Matt also created “The World Explained,” a live show he performs at conferences and seminars to break down the barriers between “us” and “them” as people age. Tim Carpenter talks to Matt Perry about trends in aging, empathy, and nothing less than explaining our world.
DR. STEVE PANTILAT – Steve’s new book is LIFE AFTER THE DIAGNOSIS: Expert Advice for Living Well with Serious Illness for Patients and Caregivers.

Dr. Pantilat is a Professor of Clinical Medicine in the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco; the Alan M. Kates and John M. Burnard Endowed Chair in Palliative Care; and the founding Director of the UCSF Palliative Care Program.
