As the new year gets underway, we’re listening back to an interview with Eugene author Lauren Kessler about her latest book, Counterclockwise. It’s an in-depth and personal look at the world of anti-aging. We spoke to Kessler over the summer after the book was released, but its themes exploring the myths and research about aging are, if you’ll forgive the expression, timeless. You can listen to the original interview and see an Oregon Art Beat profile of Kessler here.

Editor’s Note: The nutrition website Lauren Kessler mentions toward the end of the interview is The Linus Pauling Institute for Micronutrient Information.

What’s your anti-aging secret?
