No matter your family history or your genes – or COVID19 - our next guest believes that it’s not all downhill from here and that your best years are in front of you, not behind you.

Marcus Pearce is a journalist by profession who cut his teeth in radio and TV alongside Australia’s biggest names in sport and showbusiness. Today he is the director and CEO of The Wellness Couch – Australia’s #1 health and lifestyle podcast network with annual downloads in excess of 2 million and lifetime downloads exceeding 8 million.

His most popular podcast, 100 Not Out, comprises hundreds of interviews with some of the world’s happiest and longest lived people.

Each year Marcus travels to the small Greek Island of Ikaria – known as the island where people forget to die.

In 2005 Ikaria was identified by National Geographic as one of five Blue Zones– a part of the world experiencing greater longevity than anywhere else on the planet.

On this tiny island they experience 25% less cancer, 50% less heart disease, 75% less dementia and next to no gut health problems. And, they’re some of the happiest people you’ll ever meet.

Marcus lives in Byron Bay with his wife Sarah and four children, Maya, Darby, Tommy and Spencer.
