Living Well Into The Future: Food, the first four episodes of the new podcast from Julie Koppenheffer, BerkshireOLLI, and WTBR-FM , presents guests and ideas you can relate to on topics you’ll want to discuss.

Each week through April one of the first four episodes repeats on WTBR-89.7, Saturday evening at 7 p.m. This week listen to “Where Does Your Food Come From?” The episode compelled early listeners to look for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) near them, others became interested in growing vegetables themselves, and still others were fascinated by Mark Bittman’s insights about our current food supply.

The four episodes composing LWITF: FOOD, “Where Does Your Food Come From?”; “Food Is Medicine”; Good Food: Food You Enjoy and Food That Is Good For You”; and "Food, Health, and Body Weight" are available now.  Set aside time to listen or listen when you’re walking, cooking, doing chores -that’s what other listeners do!  Find episodes on the website, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, or Stitcher.
