The Brian Lehrer Show is not live today, so we won't be taking any calls. As always, you can join the conversation online through our comments section (links below), on Facebook, or on Twitter through @BrianLehrer. We'll be back live tomorrow!

Do you have a retirement plan? Today's show may help. It's a two-hour "family meeting" about whether you crave or dread retirement, and some advice for how you can actually afford it. Plus, a cultural history of the idea of retirement, which has meant many different things in different times and cultures.
