Note: In a shameless act of self promotion, I will occasionally share posts from my futurist blog/podcast Seeking Delphi on this site. Today’s post is a reblog of the first podcast episode, originally aired in last January, on one of the most controversial topics facing futurists–and humanity–today.
“I don’t want to achieve immortality through my work; I want to achieve immortality through not dying. I don’t want to live on in the hearts of my countrymen; I want to live on in my apartment.”–Woody Allen
In episode one of Seeking Delphi, the podcast, I talk with David Wood, chair of London Futurists, about his book The Abolition of Aging. Relevant links to this weeks’ show below the audio track. This is part 1 of a two part program. This week: can we do it? Next week: Should we do it, and if we do it, what are the implications? These podcasts are now available for subscription on YouTube and iTunes.
Episode #1: The Abolition of Aging, Part 1; running time 26:9
The Abolition of Aging by David Wood
