American women are living longer than ever. The average woman lives to be about 81 years old.

GPB Special Correspondent Celeste Headlee talked about the state of our elder care system with Kathy Floyd, executive director for the Georgia Council on Aging, and Glenn Ostir, director of the Institute of Gerontology at the University of Georgia.

Georgia educators are filing a class-action lawsuit against the state over retirement benefits.

In the Breakroom this week we talk about Georgia’s Confederate monuments, texting while walking, and our dream retirement plans. Plus, we discuss the benefits of taking a nice cold shower. Joining us this week: Kathy Lohr, Eric Segall, Roxanne Donovan, and Greg Williams.

Our country is growing ever grayer as baby boomers age in large numbers. A massive study at Emory University that takes an in-depth look at the aging process is underway. Emory hopes to bring together 100,000 people to study physical and mental health, sickness, and other factors that affect the elderly. We sit down with university researcher Michele Marcus to learn a little bit more about the study and what they hope to uncover.
