In today's episode, Debbie interviews her husband and co-conspirator, Sam Harrington, about the origins of the Gap Year they took together at age 62. Sam was a successful physician in private practice in Washington DC. In this interview, he explains why and how he made the life-changing decision to leave his practice and to leave DC. Together, Debbie and Sam unpack what taking a gap year meant to them, and why this was not the same thing as taking a sabbatical or early retirement.
