Hello my fellow podcast listeners, associates, colleagues, individuals, audience members, and personnel. We here at The Armen Show Podcast (known for its consistency, variety, depth, and goal-oriented nature) are glad to walk right into the new year of 2020.
The show starts on a noticeably different footing as compared with its presence at the same time last year, and this is a springboard into the forward progression at hand.
where we are at in the great year of 2020
how TikTok is the place where a lot of energy is currently going
some of the plans or ideas for 2020
speaking or some form of speech-providing
ways I can improve my end of the show throughout the year
emotional awareness and better blending with guests
telling more stories, and including more of my own experiences, along with mentions of past guests
how I will be including more elements without thinking if X or Y or Z is the right thing to add in
how I will be looking at other podcasters/creators to see what I can add in or improve upon
what the podcast represents and is meant to express
Keep up with the show and you are keeping up with the movement. Let’s roll onward.
When it comes to anti-aging research, Dr. David A. Sinclair of Harvard Medical School is on the forefront of research and innovation. He joins on episode 231 to discuss his new book Lifespan: Why We Age – and Why We Don’t Have To.
Dr. Sinclair, Ph.D., A.O. is a Professor in the Department of Genetics and co-Director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School. He is best known for his work on understanding why we age and how to slow its effects. He obtained his Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics at the University of New South Wales, Sydney in 1995.
He worked as a postdoctoral researcher at M.I.T. with Dr. Leonard Guarente where he co discovered a cause of aging for yeast as well as the role of Sir2 in epigenetic changes driven by genome instability. In 1999 he was recruited to Harvard Medical School where he has been teaching aging biology and translational medicine for aging for the past 16 years. He was also on TIME magazine’s 2014 list of the “100 most influential people in the world”.
Dr. Sinclair’s background, and what led him into the field of anti-aging research
what it is about adversity that leads to a chemical response in the body, across sirtuins and more
how aging is not yet thought of as a disease, and how that can change through communication efforts
why society and people can seem stuck in a slowed form of evolution as compared with where we are headed
why studying organisms fighting adversity, similar to how Dr. Cockell studied extremophiles, is the way to find most answers
how stress at a cellular level is different from psychological stress that releases cortisol in the bloodstream
what it means to have senescent cells accumulate in the body as one ages over time
how an optic nerve was regrown in a mouse, and what that means for our potential nerve-based regrowth
what kinds of demands Dr. Sinclair has on his time with regards to the research he does
how the Horvath Clock represents true age of a person beyond external appearance and other metrics
This was an enjoyable episode, and book, that is right on the forefront of aging research and technology. Dr. Sinclair is very active in this space, and it shows. You can check out his website, the book on Amazon, or some of his research.
We bring it live on episode 229 of the show with a fellow podcaster – Mark Metry of the Humans 2.0 Podcast. He has had wonderful guests like Robert Greene, Mark Manson, Safi Bahcall(previously on my podcast as well), and more.
Mark brings a lot of momentum to the table, across his episodes, speaking engagements, social media postings, and more. He has a company called VU Dream, which is focused on application of virtual reality and augmented reality technologies.
how Mark started his speaking engagements, and where he sees it going
who some of Mark’s memorable guests are, and what he took from his discussions with them
how a podcaster can improve their reach
what one can do to avoid the life of quiet desperation
why one should keep exploration in their mind when making daily decisions, so as not to stick in an exploitative pattern
what some goals are that Mark has regarding his upcoming career
Glad to have Mark on the show. You can check out his podcast on podcast services under the name Humans 2.0. He is also on Twitter at @markymetry.
