In critical ways, your golden years will be the mirror image of your working years.

Instead of earning money, you’ll be living off the money you’ve already earned. Blow through those savings? Too bad; no do-overs.

Instead of identifying yourself by your job, you no longer have a job. What will you say when the first question you’re asked when meeting someone is, “What do you do?” More importantly, what exactly will you do?

Retirement is a transition most of us will make, but one that many don’t think enough about.

We’ve written hundreds of articles about retirement, as well as offering a complete course on the subject, but there’s more to learn.

In this week’s “Money!” podcast, we’re going to talk retirement with the man behind The Retirement Answer Man podcast. Roger Whitney is an investment and retirement expert who can answer some of the more vexing questions for those approaching their retirement years, like “How will I know I have enough?” and “How can I make the mental transition from working life to retirement?”

As usual, I share the broadcast booth with longtime financial journalist and fellow podcaster Miranda Marquit.

Sit back, relax and listen to this week’s “Money!” podcast:

Not familiar with podcasts?

A podcast is basically a radio show you can listen to anytime, either by downloading it to your smartphone or other device, or by listening online.

They’re totally free. They can be any length (ours are typically just under a half-hour), feature any number of people and cover any topic you can possibly think of. You can listen at home, in the car, while jogging or, if you’re like me, when riding your bike.

You can listen to our latest podcasts here or download them to your phone from any number of places, including Apple, Spotify, RadioPublic, Stitcher and RSS.

If you haven’t listened to a podcast yet, give it a try, then subscribe to ours. You’ll be glad you did!
