The heart and soul of Dance Past Sunset (DPS) is my flagship podcast, and I also offer an overview of that below. It’s got quite a history, but then…so do we all!

I started interviewing guests in 2014 and post a new show every few weeks, so there are quite a few to sort through. Let me help you!
The first 38 episodes focus on end-of-life issues. Back I called the show the “Dance to Death Afterlife Podcast.” The goal of those shows was to learn how to better accept death, plan for a beautiful one, take a peek into the afterlife, and most importantly, accept every moment on the green side as a wonderful gift to savor and cherish.
You can learn more about those early shows on my Planning page, not the least of which is how important it is to have a plan. You will also benefit from my free document Five Lessons I Learned About Death (plus the one I can’t live without), which is chock full of good information gleaned from nearly 40 interviews with outstanding guests, all of whom were experts in their fields.
But my goal is, and always will be, to help people, and my audience suggested I would be even more helpful if I expanded my scope to include our so-called sunset years…that beautiful stretch of life’s journey when we might have some snow on the roof but not in our souls. We still want to have peak experiences…to travel…to live…with vigor and independence. We want to dance into the night and keep dancing right on past sunset…opening ourselves up to whatever may come.
So, starting with episode #39, I focused on the tools, tips and technologies that help boomers and their aging parents live and travel independently. Those shows have the new look and a new name you see here…Dance Past Sunset. Here is where I also add short videos called “Senior Moments” that focus on helpful technologies.
However you choose to engage the resources you find here, remember to just keep on dancing!
