Alexandra Hart and David “Lucky” Goff, Ph.D. are the co-hosts of the radio series Growing An Elder Culture. Since 2010, they have been conveners of Transition Sebastopol, Elders Salon in Sebastopol, California.

As a result of his stroke, and the onset of a rare brain syndrome, he nearly died and ended up permanently disabled.
