Karim Bukhadurov from Great.com interviewed DOROT as part of their 'Great.com Talks With...' podcast. This series is an antidote to negative news stories that aims to shed light on organizations and experts whose work is making a positive impact on the world.

A deep conversation with a stranger is proven to confer a whole host of mental and physical benefits. But not everyone has a chance to meet new people. On this podcast, DOROT's Senior Program Officer of Volunteer Services and Intergenerational Programs, Judith Turner, discussed the importance of talking with some of society’s most isolated older adults.
