An Exciting New Season of theZoomer Premieres May 16

On Monday, May 16 at 10pm ET/7pm PT, the third season of VisionTV’s timely and gutsy current affairs series, theZoomer, kicks off with a thoroughly engaging episode revolving around this year’s American Presidential election.

With episodes hosted by Faith Goldy and Libby Znaimer, theZoomer offers groundbreaking, intelligent, and hard-hitting discussions on cultural, political, social, financial and world issues that are of interest to Canadians 45-plus.

A rotating cast of notable, diverse and well-spoken roundtable experts, including frequent special guest Conrad Black, analyzes each topic – no matter how serious or light – thoroughly and intelligently.

Here is a look at the season ahead:

U.S. Election
Monday, May 16 at 10pm ET/7pm PT & Friday, May 20 at 11pm ET/8pm PT

When it comes to spectacle, the U.S. election campaign has Trump-ed the comparatively quaint ascendance of Justin Trudeau. Considering the candidates running for the U.S. presidency, an extraordinary disruption of traditional U.S. politics is dramatically unfolding. We ask: what is happening to U.S. politics? What’s more, is it good for Canadians?

Mental Health
Monday, May 23 at 10pm ET/7pm PT & Friday, May 27 at 11pm ET/8pm PT

If you listen to the dire predictions about aging, many older Canadians will sooner or later go gaga due to one mental illness or another. Does this mean the good news of longer life expectancy is actually bad news waiting to happen? Why aren’t we confronting the ageist notion that mental health issues like depression and anxiety is just an inevitable consequence of being a Zoomer?

Divorce
Monday, May 30 at 10pm ET/7pm PT & Friday, June 3 at 11pm ET/8pm PT

Zoomer divorce rates are the only ones on the rise. With longer, much healthier lifespans and greater financial independence, Zoomer women are initiating the majority of grey divorces. And, they seem to be doing it amicably. We explore the secret to a good divorce and a rollicking future full of romance and renewal.

This is 100
Monday, June 6 at 10pm ET/7pm PT & Friday, June 10 at 11pm ET/8pm PT

When analyzing those who have lived to 100 or beyond, it’s just as likely that these centenarians have led a rollicking life as one filled with greater health consciousness. We visit with a collection of ultra-durable uber-Zoomers to find out how they’re living their lives.

Anti-Aging
Monday, June 13 at 10pm ET/7pm PT & Friday, June 17 at 11pm ET/8pm PT 

If better vision and hearing can be realized through modern medicine, why not improved looks and body parts? Cosmetic surgeons and healthy living advocates are invited to the roundtable to discuss new, less invasive ways to keep that youthful glow.

And there’s more!

Season three will be rounded by a collection of lively episodes that zone in on the Royal family, political cartoonists, travel, retirement security, as well as health issues within the Zoomer age range.
