What It Means To Get "OLD?!"

"I hope I die before I get old," The Who sang in their early years.  We're happy to report that both singer and songwriter are still with us, and in their seventies. 

But their former declaration is evidence of society's profoundly complicated feelings about aging. 

The feelings are explored further in the documentary film OLD?!, which brings together the musings on aging of dozens of people of widely varying ages.  Katherine Roselli of Ashland is the creator of OLD?! and our guest in the studio.
