How old do you want to live to be? Seriously. Author and life science journalist, David Ewing Duncan, has asked over 30,000 this question. 60% have answered they wish only to live the average 80 years. 30% shoot for the 120 year mark. 10% think big at 150 years. And about 1% go for the biggie, immortality. Did the scientific audiences Duncan asked have different numbers than the lay audience? David explains the numbers in this interview which is not only about his new e-book, "When I'm 164: The New Science of Radical Life Extension, and What Happens if It Succeeds," but also about life as a journalist in today's world.
