Last Wednesday, March 26, from 1:00 - 3:00 on national television's The
Family Channel's hit program "Home and Family" produced a segment on
"Fountain of Youth" with a focus on neurosuspensions.

Did anyone see it?

I was the featured guest, along with David Caradine, the 1992 women's
olympic champion (swimming), Marilyn Keegan (radio personality and

The show's host, Cristina Ferrara (well known Ford Agency model) was
remarkably sweet and interested in cryonics. She gave me the opportunity to
discuss a neurosuspension, why one would choose neuro over whole body, a bit
about the cryonics procedure, and why it is a viable measure in preserving
life. I hadn't met Cristina before, so I didn't have a clue that she is a
very religious person, and openly believes Jesus her savior. Even in light
of this, as I found out mid-way during the "live" show, she maintained a
sense of humor and sincere interest. She also did not embarrass me nor
attempt to ridicule cryonics nor neurosuspensions (she even gave me a
complementary quote for my Web site which I will put up at some point.)

The show ended with twenty people on "stage" asking all sorts of serious,
informed as well as fun-provoking questions. We laughed - kidded. One man
who was self-professed "out of shape" teased me about the possibility of my
having to use his body as a resort if bio-tech bodies are not available at
my reanimation. I told him I have an insurance policy against that option
-;) He said he wanted Cristina's body (its' made a ton of money), and she
said she wanted one that had less bulk on it and searched around the room
for one that she would reserve. Off the air, she asked me what Jesus would
do if he came to get her body and couldn't find her head! (In that if she
was a neurosuspendee, her head would be in a dewar). We had a good laugh.

Although the fun was during the last few minutes of the show, I did have a
fair amount of time to answer pertinent questions and to reach a lot of
America about extending life indefinitely and neurosuspension.
