The Over Fifty Starting Over podcast

Inspiration and Information for people championing their third act

Barry Edwards and Merle Garrison – moderate vs conservative. Metaphysical concept guy vs Christian political historian. Self-improvement and finding your career of passion are our main themes. We typically end discussing current events in a fairly politically incorrect format. Fast-paced, one-hour intellectual discussions in an entertaining format.

I have watched since the beginning and I now have my wife Christina asking if the next episode is ready. I don’t agree with everything they talk about but what they do is promote a conversation that allows you to see different sides. There knowledge base is vast and what they might not know they can easily get on the fly, I love to hear about there life’s ups and downs. I feel like I am in the room listening to them banter back and forth.

If you haven’t been following start, well worth the time.

Thank you for helping me become a smarter and better human being
