James W. Russell got a shock in 2008 like hundreds of thousands of other Americans who thought their 401(k)s were going to give them a comfortable retirement.

We spend the hour talking with him about 401(k)s, pension plans, and social security — and what can be done to make sure we don’t end up poor in our old age.
