Longevity Road Trip

Five couples hit the road looking for ways to stay young and live longer

“I feel infused with hope. If I choose vitality it will extend my life…” Taimi Post

Five diverse Zoomer couples embark on unique road trips to global “longevity hotspots”. Each journey involves experiences designed to explore and extend the limits of human aging. We’ll join these couples as they reveal the secrets of billion-dollar research facilities in California, enjoy the serenity of a religious community, divine tantric arts on the beaches of Cap d’Agde and train like an Olympian in the Swiss Alps. While each journey combines the high-falutin with the folksy and sometimes plain flaky, the series is firmly grounded in hard science. Each episode features experts in the field of longevity and heath. Scientists from the University of Toronto’s ground-breaking Institute for Life Course and Aging will consult on the entire project ensuring that the series is held to the most rigorous scientific standards. Longevity Road Trip will challenge everything we know about aging.
