This is from Radio National's Philosophers Zone:

"Are you an immortality curmudgeon or optimist? If you could live forever, would you?

Welcome to the Immortality Project."

 "Lucretius famously said that life is a banquet. After the final course, you have to leave the dining room, for good. For many, this is life in the right proportions. But for some death is never a good option.  Meet John Fisher Martin, a distinguished philosopher in charge of a five million dollar immortality project.  He’s an immortality optimist to boot."


Listen to the program with John Fisher and visit the Immortality Project's website.
