Morning Zoo Actuary

A relative thought I should combine my actuarial training and my people skills to start a morning talk show with me as Dr. Terry, the Feel Good Actuary.  Each show would start with me reminding people with each day they’re alive they’ve set a new personal record and I’d then take calls from people who aren’t dead.  I’d essentially get paid to sugar coat mortality statistics like “Only 8% of people with pancreatic cancer live more than 14 months.  You can be that 8%!”  I could also help people navigate life insurance questions and such.  Finally, the show could serve as a sleep aid because I can’t think of anything duller on the radio than fielding insurance questions.
