On the July 5, 2015 edition of Work With Marty Nemko I take a most rare vacation day. So, you'll hears the best recent show I could dig up. It's the one in which my wife, Barbara Nemko and I debate the pros and cons of retirement.

We use a format I've created to ensure fairness to both sides of the issue: The Switch-Sides Debate.  In the first half, I take the pro-retirement side and in the second half we switch sides. To help ensure the issue was explored in full-dimension, we then invited you to call in. Good show, we believe. We hope you'll listen.

On the June 21, 2015 Father's Day edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I offer an audio Father's Day Card: an ode to men at work, specifically on why the "pay gap" is far less and in a surprising number of fields non existent than the "Women earn 77 cents" meme implies. Also, listeners with a work problem call in for a Workover.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on 91.7 FM and is archived for a week on and iTunes, and in perpetuity here on

Should You Retire?

Jun 13, 2015

If you're near or at retirement age, should you retire?

On the June 14, 2015 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, Barbara and Marty Nemko will debate that issue using an unusual format. To ensure that both sides are fairly represented, they'll switch sides in the middle of the debate.

Plus, as usual, you can call in for a Workover. Whatever career conundrum is besetting you or someone you care about, Marty and Barbara can usually help.

In the aftermath of the Baltimore unrest, President Obama has allocated an additional $450 million for job training programs. Logically, such programs programs make sense but evaluations of results have not been as positive as we would like.

On the May 24, 2015 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I'll moderate a conversation/debate on how much hope we should place on job training programs. Stephen Baiter who oversees government-funded job training programs will discuss the issue with Jim Bovard, who, before Congress, expressed skepticism about job training programs.

On the May 17, 2015 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, my wife Barbara Nemko and I discuss the book Work Rules by Google's HR Director, Laszlo Bock. I'll also talk with a fascinating orthodontist, Ken Dillehay, about his surprisingly interesting profession.
