Me and Skavlan

This week I was interviewed on Swedish television by Fredrik Skavlan. The program can be seen on SVT Play (search for Skavlan, it is the 090116 program; I occur about 19 minutes in). I talked about life extension and cryonics with Skavlan, Åsa Vilbäck ("Dr Åsa", doctor and media personality), Göran Persson (former prime minister, currently philosophical farmer) and Anitra Steen (manager of the state liquor monopoly and married to Göran - a very sharp lady). It was a rather relaxed discussion, and we seemed to agree that aiming for longer and healthier lives is a good thing, and that of course people should be allowed to pursue it freely.

My grandmother lost the debate within the family about whether I should unbutton my shirt or not. And I'm now "out" as a cryonics person in Sweden (to nobody's surprise, I guess).
