LOS ANGELES – October 5, 2021 – Today, nonprofit Transamerica Institute® and WYPR, Baltimore’s NPR news station, launched ClearPath – Your Roadmap to Health and WealthSM, a weekly podcast dedicated to offering insights and practical tips for listeners on important matters that can influence their health, financial security, and retirement. After seven successful years on the radio, Transamerica Institute is collaborating with WYPR to enhance the show, making it available to a larger audience through a new podcast format.

“People have the potential to live longer than ever before, yet many are taking inadequate steps to plan and prepare for this gift of extra time.

Each week, host Al Waller discusses a specific topic with experts including Ms. Collinson, Mihaela Vincze, public health professional for Transamerica Institute, and special guests. Topics range from health and wellness to workforce trends, financial literacy, and retirement. Each episode explores and explains an issue, discusses opportunities, and offers strategies for listeners.
