For a human living in 5,000 B.C. living to the ripe age of 60 may have felt like immortality. Today most expect to live into their 80’s. What happens in 2150? 2750? Will life extension continue? Could we someday, supported by humanity’s greatest advancements in biology, computers, and medicine become immortal?
On today’s show we’re joined by renowned, biogenetic expert Ira Pastor, CEO of the Philadelphia-based life sciences company, Bioquark Inc. His company takes a unique approach to age reversal, merging knowledge from various disciplines in regenerative biology, evolutionary genomics, and bio-cybernetics to directly aid in regeneration and repair of the body.
We’re searching for the fountain of youth. Why don’t you join us and stay a while - like for 60 minutes? Heck, join us eternally… Amie also guests, Oisin reviews a Trappist beer, and even Russ, the neighbor stops by for a pint.

Organs with Memories, A Prophet Who Likes to Party & Dead-ringers. It's All Science. We Think.

Or it could mean they now know your yahoo password and are setting your fantasy football lineup to all kickers. Listen in.
