PRESS RELEASE · New York NY, USA ·
Leslie Gold has been making people sit up and take notice for decades. As a radio talk show host in New York City, the nation’s #1 market, she created and headlined the highly rated, “The Radiochick Show” for 10 years. As ‘The Radiochick’, Leslie shared her thoughts about current events, captivated listeners with compelling stories, and from time to time, rankled her audience with her provocative positions.
Her podcast, A Life’s Story premieres May 4th on all major platforms. Still standing up and making people take notice, in Leslie’s signature style, she applies her expert interviewing techniques to a different generation of subject matter.
A 99-year-old WW2 veteran turned transgendered widow fights discrimination from the very government for which she fought. A 103-year-old goes to work as she has every day for decades. an 86- year-old woman waves her Senior Olympics medals at the medical community who wrote her off. A Holocaust survivor of 4 Nazi death camps endures unimaginable horrors yet rebuilds his life from being a walking skeleton to a life of happiness and love. These are just a few of the complex, moving and powerful stories profiled in A Life’s Story.
A Life’s Story shines a light on the lives of special octogenarian, nonagenarians and centenarians who have done, and are still doing astonishing things. Many have been participants in important chapters of history. Every episode is an intimate and remarkable profile, concluding with the insight that can only come from those who have seen it all.
“We are losing generation of folks who are markedly different than every generation that came after them. They grew up in a time when the world was facing momentous changes, and they lived that history. They did extraordinary courageous, and significant things. They are racking up achievements even at 80, 90 and 100 years old. These are remarkable life stories and there is a special wisdom that we can derive from their lives” reflects Leslie.“Part of this is personal. I so wish I did this for my own parents. I am a broadcaster, why didn’t I think of it? says Leslie, “It’s too late now, today, I would give anything to hear my parents tell their own stories in their own voices.”
