Dispensing Wisdom

“Advice is a dangerous gift, even from the wise to the wise” - so definitely don’t listen to us, as we discuss what to do with others’ wisdom.

In this podcast, we explore the value of intergenerational advice, whether age equates to wisdom and what makes someone receptive to advice, regardless of its quality. We also address the areas in which people seek advice and how this has altered over time.

A few things we mentioned in this podcast:

- Biggest life mistakes
- Citizens Advice trends
- Citizens’ Advice Bureauxinformation film from 1940
- Do old people understand what young people worry about?
