In Episode 1 of The ELSA Podcast we talk to Professor Sir Michael Marmot who helped launch the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing in 2002 about how it came about and how it can help tackle social inequality. We also hear from the study's current Principal Investigator Professor Andrew Steptoe about how the study works, how researchers can use it to better understand what happens as we age, how Government Departments use it to develop policies on pensions, loneliness and dementia and his hopes for the study's future.
