Back to College, But No Tests!

How do retirees keep learning? They go back to college of course! In this episode we visit with Howie Hollander and step into the college classroom! No dorms or cafeteria food now, thank goodness, and this college student gets to pick his topics and classes. Best of all, NO EXAMS! What a great way for a retired person to keep learning and updated! Many colleges and universities offer programs for the retired person to audit for free. What subject would you pick? Hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did!
