Barbara Ehrenreich Featured on WNYC

Americans are afraid of aging and death, but how much control do we have over these processes? Barbara Ehrenreich discusses this in her latest book Natural Causes: An Epidemic of Wellness, the Certainty of Dying, and Killing Ourselves to Live Longer. Ehrenreich looks at aging on a cellular level and exhibits how little control we actually have over the aging process, despite fervent attempts like purchasing anti-aging products, undergoing cosmetic surgery, or eating more kale.

Barbara Ehrenreich will be in conversation with Alissa Quart on April 10 at 7 pm at the Upper East Side Barnes & Noble (150 East 86th Street).

This segment is guest hosted by Kai Wright.

This high-quality journalism is then co-published with mainstream media outlets mobilizing readers to address systemic economic hardship.
