Guest: Claudia Geist, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology/Division of Gender Studies, University of Utah TV loves the stereotype of a grumpy retired guy like Archie Bunker or Frank Barone from "Everybody Loves Raymond" spending his days relaxing on the couch while his wife cooks and cleans around him. University of Utah sociologist Claudia Geist wondered if there was any truth to that stereotype, so she looked into surveys of retired couples over 60.
