Specifically for Seniors

Specifically for Seniors

Specifically for Seniors is for those of us who have reached an age where we have time to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea together at a coffee klatch in cyberspace. We are a group of mature adults who are interesting and interested. We are connected and active. And at Specifically for Seniors we talk about anything and everything that is of interest to us. So sit back, relax - grab a cup of whatever you like and spend a half-hour or so listening to the guests on our podcast talking about subjects that concern, delight, inform or just make us laugh.

“And meanwhile time goes about its immemorial work of making everyone look and feel like shit.” -Martin Amis

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU 24/7 - we are always on and always available when you feel the need for a little company or just. little talk. Specifically for Seniors is talk just for those of us older than 65. And you can always get in touch at larry@specificallyforseniors.com or www.specificallyforseniors.com/contact with comments or suggestions for guests you would like to hear.
