Show Notes

In this episode I talk with longevity expert Marcus Pearce about the formula to a great long life. Marcus has interviewed dozens of healthy, happy older people including many centurions and holocaust survivors to delineate what the key aspects are in living a great long life. Marcus has also spent time living in one of the ‘Blue Zones’ Ikaria (a little greek island) known as the island where people forget to die.

This is a fun and very informative chat where we talk about what Marcus learned from living amongst one of the healthiest cultures on the planet and also what surprised him! We draw on this experience and the dozens of interviews he has conducted to tease out what the 8 step formula is for a great long life – not to be mistaken for a long life (there is a difference and we talk about this too!). Learn how through life his perception of healthy has changed dramatically and why he re-wrote the script for his life.

If you want to live and great long life this is a must listen!
