LLAMA, an acronym for Live Long and Master Aging, is a podcast that explores the science and stories behind human longevity.
In a series of one-to-one interviews, the LLAMA podcast hacks the aging process. Our guests include world-renowned scientists, future thinkers and biohackers, all of whom have a common goal of figuring out how we can live longer and healthier. We also talk to inspiring individuals who have already mastered the aging process.
The LLAMA philosophy is that there is much can do to extend our natural healthspan or the length of time when we enjoy optimal health. We talk a lot about food, fasting, fitness, the brain and good fortune.
We also put safety first. The information provided in the podcast is not intended as medical advice. The opinions expressed by the host and guests are for discussion and entertainment purposes only. Do not attempt to replicate the ideas or research protocols that we discuss. The advice of a qualified health practitioner should be sought before engaging in any dietary or exercise regime.

He lives on a ranch in California with his partner, dog, goats and a llama called Arthur.
