What is Ageism? Are you a hidden victim? How does ageism affect your travel life? In this episode, I interview Ashton Applewhite, the pioneering advocate against ageism, to discuss the multifaceted issues surrounding aging and societal perceptions of older adults.

Ashton is an internationally recognized authority on ageism. She is the author of the critically acclaimed book, “This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism.” Ashton co-founded Old School, an anti-ageism clearinghouse, and has been a pivotal figure in raising awareness about age-related issues for nearly two decades.

“Awareness is the first step: once you see it in yourself… you see it in the culture around you.” - Ashton Applewhite
