About the Podcast and Our Hosts

Welcome to Squeeze the Day, a monthly podcast where we talk to extraordinary older adults living their best life now. Produced by FiftyForward, a Nashville nonprofit agency that supports, champions, and enhances life for those 50 and older, Squeeze the Day highlights inspiring stories and experiences from all walks of life with the hope of encouraging all of us to “squeeze every drop” of fun and purpose out of our second chapters.

The nation’s 65-and-older population has grown rapidly since the 2010 U.S. Census count, driven by Baby Boomers born between 1946 and 1964. Now as the earliest Gen Xers (1965-1980) find themselves in the 50+ range, we see a growing trend to live life to the fullest. FiftyForward programs and services help older adults live longer, more engaged and active lives.

Hosted by FiftyForward Communication Director Susan Sizemore, with occasional appearances by FiftyForward Chief Executive Officer Sallie Hussey, this podcast will highlight a wide-range of topics and experiences especially relevant to this demographic. You can listen to this inspiring podcast wherever you catch your favorite podcasts.
