Episode 5 Biological Age Reversal and Digital Immortality
Play • 56 min

Can the mind survive when the body no longer does? Will we find a way to stop the aging process? What are transhumanism, epigenetics, digital immortality, and adrenochrome? Join hosts Shanti and Danny as they look into what these terms mean even if Danny does pronounce adrenochrome without the R..., where the science behind this is, and what the future may look like in a little more futuristic version of Breaking Bad Science.
