Karl Pillemer is a leading family sociologist and expert researcher when it comes to aging. He’s a Professor of Human Development at Cornell University, as well as a Professor of Gerontology in Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College.

Over the course of his career, he’s focused on how family relationships change over the course of people’s lives, working with both families and the professionals who work with them in his research.

In his book, Fault Lines: Fractured Families and How to Mend Them, he explores the issue of family estrangement. He shares what he learned over the course of hundreds of interviews with estranged and reconciled families to get at the heart of this silent epidemic, to better understand what breaks families apart, and how to heal.

Today, Karl joins the podcast to talk about his fascinating work in the nascent field of gerontology, why so many people struggle to find fulfillment or purpose in retirement, and what we all can learn from his conversations with people from all walks of life who have had long, satisfying relationships for decades.
