Welcome to Live Longer: The Podcast

Have you ever wondered how to live a longer, healthier life? I am Millie, a Professor, author and co-founder of iOWNA (a mobile health app). My purpose in life is to help people answer this question and enable them to live longer, healthier lives. This is at the centre of everything that I do.

Aside from the provision of excellent medicine and adopting a healthy lifestyle, I put art, nature and healing into the mix for the holy grail of achieving health and wellness. Join me as I delve into the different ways to achieve this, by speaking to a range of people from all walks of life, to explore their perspectives, and share their tips on how to live a longer, healthier life. From artists to gardeners, they all have something interesting to add to the conversation!

In my first series, The Art of Healthy Longevity, I share the wisdom of artists and people who love art.
In my second series I will explore the Art of Living and try to unravel how individuals with a creative background live life to the full and help others with their creative endeavours -from surgeons to patients what is it that is the secret to the art of living a longer healthier lif

Sarah Stenning: I found Sarah such a self effacing inspirational, kind and brave woman. She is a rock despite her health problems and an example to us. May she be healed and live a long healthy life.

Marilyn Stafford - Such an amazing (and modest) woman - who inspires through her passion telling stories with her camera. Many incredible opportunities- which she took (loved the coincidence with the Indian writer)& which led her to so many places & memorable images. It is one of the most fascinating talks I have ever heard (and she continues to take photographs & exhibit).

Masoud Teimory: Inspirational! A life affirming insight into how an inquisitive nature and passion for artistic pursuits can overcome adversity and difficult circumstances throughout life. A lesson for us all about having a generous response to those around us.

Sarah Muirhead-Allwood:I was fascinated by Sarah's descriptions of photography in India. She gets to the grips in her depiction of life in India with both the atmosphere and the characters. Equally her work in orthopaedics specialising in hip surgery has the same precision as her photographic work.

I’ve been listening to Live Longer The Podcast and really enjoy the format. Lisa Butcher’s was extremely moving, I loved Emma’s too and found Masoud completely fascinating – what an eclectic career journey he’s had. Remarkable. I love the tone and pace of them and the familiarity you have with each person: that connection really works nicely.

What a wonderful interview! Paul Monaghan was very impressive and your questions encouraged him to talk about really interesting aspects of his design and architectural approach to such important social projects. I thought it was very inspiring. well done!

Thank you Prof. Spector and Dr. Stone for another very interesting podcast. It really emphasised the need for a highly personalised approach to health and longevity. One size does not fit all and the number of variables to be considered for good health are so enormous that generalised advice is not going to be the answer. Perhaps this approach should be covered in our national schools curriculum. I think that personal knowledge and awareness is the key and your podcast helps to spread the word.

Masoud Teimory - Interesting to learn from the podcast that photographers live longer than poets, fascinating considering the weight of all the equipment they drag around....good heart attack material. Loved your podcast! Interesting to see how in many ways we had parallel views about the times we were living in.

I’ve been enjoying the podcast, especially Tim Spector, whose book I’ve been reading. Graham was a hoot; sorry he can’t drink any longer, because I’d like to have a pint with him sometime.

Adrian Furnham Interview: A super interview with a very interesting and knowledgeable individual. I loved that Adrian suggested focussing on one's strength rather than fix weaknesses. I also liked his thoughts on personality and intelligence. It was so well explained.
