About Tuesday People
Inspired by the worldwide No. 1 bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie, join Mitch Albom as he explores the themes he and his old professor spoke about as Morrie was leaving the world, and how they relate to leading a better life. An interactive show with listener and occasional guest participation, “Tuesday People” is a community interested in knowing what matters in life, keeping that in perspective, and applying it to make our days happier and more fulfilling.
Morrie said, “If you don’t like the culture, don’t buy it.” It’s as pertinent today as it was when Morrie uttered these words over 20 years ago. From the culture of celebrity we face today, to the obsession with divisive politics, all of these are part of a cultural environment that sometimes we don’t feel we’re a part of.
Perhaps the most important lesson Mitch Albom learned from his beloved professor, Morrie Schwartz, was the importance of giving to others.
Morrie said there was no substitute for the experience of having children. The hosts discuss the importance of family, the decision to have – or to not have – children and how today’s decisions will affect you later in life.

tuesdays with Morrie
an old man, a young man, and life’s greatest lesson
Beloved international bestseller that has changed millions of lives
Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher, or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, helped you see the world as a more profound place, gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it.
For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor.
Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn’t you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, receive wisdom for your busy life today the way you once did when you were younger?
Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man’s life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited with Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final “class”: lessons in how to live.
Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie’s lasting gift with the world. Tuesdays with Morrie began as a modest labor of love to help pay some of Schwartz’s medical bills. Now, it’s the best-selling memoir of all time, the basis of an Emmy-winning made-for-television film, and a hit off-broadway play that has been produced on stages across the globe.
