Interviews With Sonia Arrison

I'd mentioned the book "100 Plus" a couple of weeks ago, authored by Sonia Arrison:

To my eyes, the book is essentially a fast overview of the last ten years of science, debate, important subjects, and noteworthy people in the aging research and longevity advocacy communities. ... 100 Plus is, I think, a good book to give to the average fellow in the street who would be flattened and slain by the attempt to read Aubrey de Grey and Michael Rae's Ending Aging. That book is where the meat is - but 100 Plus is a Cliff's Notes for the current state and direction of longevity science and the advocacy community supporting it. That is a useful thing: a person reading 100 Plus will wind up in roughly the same place as a casual reader of the high points of Fight Aging!

I notice that Arrison is doing the book promotion rounds with vigor. The resulting materials include a number of audio and video interviews, such as these from Changesurfer Radio:

100 Plus: The Coming Age of Longevity pt1

100 Plus: The Coming Age of Longevity pt2

Dr. J. chats with Sonia Arrison, a futurist and policy analyst who has studied the impact of new technologies for the Pacific Research Institute (PRI). They discuss her new book 100+: How the Coming Age of Longevity Will Change Everything, from Careers and Relationships to Family and Faith.

There is also official video of her presentation at the recent SENS5 conference, which you will find is posted to the conference YouTube channel, with thanks to the SENS Foundation volunteers for the time they take to make that happen:
