Live Long and Master Aging podcast

Exploring the science and stories behind human longevity

with Peter Bowes

Latest episode



Telling the stories of long, healthy and productive lives is what we do here.  We share insights into how people conduct themselves – the habits, hacks, lessons and learning curves that evolve over time.  We hear about relationships, athletic adventures and career achievements – the highs and the lows of a life well-lived.

One day, hopefully in the distant future, it will be obituary-time. A few paragraphs politely mentioning some of our milestones along with funeral arrangements and options for flowers.  But before it comes to that, have you ever thought about telling your own story?

James R. Hagerty writes obituaries for The Wall Street Journal, but his new book focusses on the living. In Yours Truly: An Obituary Writer’s Guide to Telling Your Story, James shares his skills and insight into how to record the pivotal moments of our lives.  He also explains how the process could prove life-enhancing or enlightening and a valuable resource for our loved-ones.
