Blood Money

A start-up called Ambrosia is charging $8,000 for blood transfusions from young people.  About 100 people have signed up to receive an infusion, founder Dr. Jesse Karmazin announced at the Code Conference. Anyone over age 35 can become an Ambrosia customer, said Karmazin, but most of the early adopters tend to be of retirement age.  Anthony and Jeff discuss the ethics of this startup and idea of techno-vampyrism.
