When I was growing up during the 1960s and 1970s the term "generation gap" was all over the place. The grownups I knew were a whole lot more interesting than the kids who were my age, so I never really identified with the lower part of the aforementioned "gap."
I still tend to have more in common with people who are in their 70s, 80s, and 90s. Perhaps that's one reason I found this Podcast about Irv Brecher so wonderful. Hank Rosenfeld spent more than half a decade hanging out with Brecher, and he recorded their conversations.
Here's Brecher's Obituary, and a link to Rosenfeld's book The Wicked Wit of the West
