    #023 BioBeats 🎶 — Dr David Plans CEO and Co-founder

    How could better understanding your internal state improve your mental health?

    Dr David Plans is a lecturer in Organisational Neuroscience and CEO of BioBeats; a company on a mission to free people from mental suffering. He’s completing his second PhD in Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford and has raised over $6M to turn his academic research into a bustling company.

    This is a really interesting conversation in which I’m completely out of my depth. We start by discussing David’s story and his view of hustle culture and how enhancing peoples’ interoception (which is loosely defined as understanding the internal state of your body) could improve their mental health.

    Thank you to Elise Plans for the music you hear.
