Between 1870 and 1970 our lifesplans more than doubled globally. For the thousands of years of human history prior to this massive leap forward in longevity, most humans did well to make it into their 40's. We lived long enough to reproduce, protect our children until they could fend for themselves, and then we were gone.

Yet today in Australia we have a life expectancy of 82.5 years. In wealthy countries like Australia life is lengthening by more than five hours a day, every day.

In this week’s episode we’re going to look at how the traditional picture of what retirement looks like could evolve to better suit the realities of modern day life in Australia.
