Five stars when my favorite speakers are on

I listen mostly for discussion with from Brian Feroldi.

Jon AM ,

Omg

There was a successful vaccine announced? Over a week ago? Let’s talk about it.

Summary of every episode:

Recovery. Economy. Bill Gates. Blah blah.

These stocks may go up, but they may go down. You might want to buy, but you might want to sell. Maybe invest, maybe don’t.

We watch CNBC and repeat what they say. Then we record a podcast.

Please Cover The Emerging Psychedelic Industry

Peter Theil’s Compass Pathways (CMPS) just went public Sept 18th and it was one of the best IPO’s of the year. Kevin O’Leary’s Mind Medicine (MMEDF) will list one NASDAQ on Nov 2nd.

The confluence of the climate and mental health crises in America right now make this moment the most promising and ripe environment for emerging mental health treatments. Will psychedelics save the world? Will we replace MAGA with the licensed medical use of LSD?

INVESTIGATE!!!
