Century Lives Longevity and Aging – Ken Stern

The Not Old Better Show Interview Series

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show…today’s show is brought to you by Ritual.com.


The Not Old Better Show name literally comes from this notion of longevity, happiness in later life, health, and wellness.  Our guest today, Ken Stern epitomizes all that and more.  Ken Stern is the founder and chair of the Longevity Project which he founded in collaboration with the Stanford Center on Longevity. He is the host of multiple podcasts, including When I’m 64. Ken joins us to talk about his personal connection to longevity and how both When I’m 64 and the Longevity Project got started. We’ll listen to a brief clip from Ken’s new show, Century Lives, and talk about upcoming episodes, tech for seniors and innovation.

And we’ll answer questions about whether rules created when most people lived only to 50 or 60 still make sense when more and more people live to 100? Longer lives are, at once, among the most remarkable achievements in all of human history and the greatest challenge of the 21st century. How can we ensure that our lives are not just longer, but healthy and rewarding as well? From the Stanford Century on Longevity, Century Lives is here to start the conversation. In our first season, we ask how COVID-19 has changed the way we live…and how that impacts our longevity. Join us as we venture into the world of education, work, healthcare, and more to see how our future as a population of centenarians has already started.


That of course is a brief clip from our guest Ken Stern and his new show, Century Lives available wherever you get your podcasts.  But, we have Ken Stern today here on the Not Old Better Show…please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better show via internet phone, Ken Stern.
