When asked what sparked the idea for creating the podcast, Paul told Breakaway Daily:
As a 50+ age person, I found very little information with any sense of objectivity, balance or awareness about how being north of 50 can mean many different things, and isn’t about healthcare and social security. Additionally, when first thinking about how to do this, i.e., the podcast idea, many people north of 50 said straight out: no one will listen, watch or pay attention to a show dedicated to this age group. So, I began with a chip on my shoulder to prove it could be done.
In describing The Not Old Better apps and their focus, Vogelzang points to the various comments made by Beta Testers and Breakaway Daily testing agents. One comment read: “This app from The Not Old Better Show is especially designed for older eyes, giving us all the simple option to toggle between different, easy and easier sizing of reading the screen!”
The app needed to make sense to our audience,”
Vogelzang says. “It’s gratifying to hear comments pointing out specific uses, following directly from our intended development. And, to be the recipient of the Breakaway Daily Technology Award is just double confirmation we’re on the right track.” Vogelzang goes on to say, “We’ll continue to make scheduled improvements, and for now, we’re testing at every stage to make it the very best, after gratefully accepting this recent award.
