Steven Johnson: How We Doubled Life Expectancy in the 20th Century

The Reason Interview With Nick Gillespie

"It took us four years just to identify the virus that caused AIDS in the '80s," says Steven Johnson. "Imagine COVID where it's four years before we even know what is causing the outbreak. That's what would have happened if we just shifted 20 years, 30 years earlier in terms of when this outbreak happened."Johnson is the author of the new book Extra Life: A Short History of Living Longer, which is also running as a series on PBS (watch online here). The rapid advance in vaccine technology, which is bringing an end to the COVID-19 pandemic, is best understood in the context of a series of innovations that more than doubled the life expectancy of the human race over the last 100 years. Extra Life explores how innovations in epidemiological statistics, artificial fertilizer, toilets, and sanitation systems, along with vaccines and other measures, have allowed billions of people to flourish until old age. By 2016, global life expectancy at birth had reached 72 years, according to the World Health Organization. Johnson was a founder of the pioneering website Feed in the 1990s and has authored a shelf full of books about human progress, including such bestsellers as The Ghost Map, which recounted how doctors and researchers ended the threat of cholera in 19th-century London, and Future Perfect, which argued that the modern networked world is far more resilient than previous iterations.He talks with Nick Gillespie about how we managed to massively increase our lifespans in the 20th century, and whether we can do even better in the 21st. They also talk about performance of the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Food and Drug Administration when it comes to COVID-19 and how those agencies might rebuild trust and confidence in the post-pandemic world.The post Steven Johnson: How We Doubled Life Expectancy in the 20th Century appeared first on Reason.com.

Alone in the basement

Hey everybody! In this episode we talk to Steven Johnson, one of the minds behind Total Psychopathic Wrestling. In this episode we cover every TPW event since the last time we talked. Which means we cover last summer all the way up until now. We even go over this Saturday’s card. If you’re a big TPW fan this episode is perfect for you because it gives you a real peek behind the scenes into how certain things came together and some stories you might not hear otherwise. Steven is someone I always find it incredibly easy to talk too and it really shows in this episode.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/aloneinthebasement/message

Hell & High Water with John Heilemann

In which John Heilemann talks with Steven Johnson, New York Times best-selling writer on science, technology, and their intersection with human behavior. Heilemann and Johnson discuss his latest book, Extra Life: A Short History of Living Longer, and the new four-part PBS documentary series of the same title based on the book, which explore what Johnson calls "one of our greatest achievements: the doubling of global life expectancy over the past century;" the historical roots of the anti-vax movement; the importance of networks of collaboration in discovery and what he regards as the myth of the "lone genius;" the cholera epidemic in London in the mid-1800s and what we can learn from it today; and the rarely examined environmental consequences of our great strides in public health. Johnson also shares his qualms about the possibility that medical advances might—just might—allow us to live forever. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Steven Johnson on 'New Tru Blu' and TCM on the Mountain, Will Davison and a Bathurst preview!

On The Grid

TCM Cars at Bathurst are cool. Very Cool. Which is why we've got three-time TCM champ and all round good bloke Steven Johnson on the show to talk about it. He's racing an XD Falcon now, running as a tribute to his old man's famous Ford that made the Johnson name so famous at Bathurst in the early 80s. Stevie J talks developing the car, his thoughts on close family friend JB and his battles and much, much more. Then Will Davison is back to preview his first weekend back as a DJR driver as the Supercars head to the Mountain. Plus, we predict what will be 'Hot' or 'Not' this year. Probably badly, but it was fun trying!

First I talk to Steve and he tells us how he got into the wrestling business and then we cover the card for KAPOW Wrestling’s Unfinished Business 2 which is happening this Saturday! After that Matt joins us and he tells us about how he got into the business. They tell us how they met and how they decided to partner together with Total Psychopathic Wrestling.
