Ross McCray: VideoAmp

The coronavirus pandemic is threatening every facet of normal life. This episode of the LLAMA podcast was recorded before the global health crisis hit home for so many of us. It focusses on the work-life initiatives of a rapidly growing US company that could be a blueprint for how we live in the future.  But not until life returns to normal. VideoAmp founder and CEO, Ross McCray, is currently dealing with the huge challenge of running a software and data company, employing more than 230 people, from home. He is particularly focussed on providing employees with support for their general wellbeing, to match the facilities that they usually enjoy at the office. Ross is on a long-term mission to change the work-life paradigm. He wants to build a workplace model that nurtures the physical and mental fitness of employees, in an environment that prioritizes happiness and health span. This episode includes Ross’s original interview, with LLAMA’s Peter Bowes, and an update on the impact of coronavirus.

Felice Gersh: Physician


March 13, 2020: Coronavirus is the only topic on our minds at the moment. People are panic shopping, a national emergency has been declared in the United States and widespread travel bans have been implemented around the world. There is also much confusion over testing for Covid-19 and how we should be looking after ourselves as the pandemic unfolds. Living long and well may be our goal in normal times, but getting through the next few months is a greater concern right now. In this episode of the Live Long and Master Aging podcast, with Peter Bowes, Dr. Felice Gersh, a physician and integrative medicine specialist, discusses the practical implications of a disease that has gripped the world with fear and uncertainty.
