    Jason Tan is the founder and CEO of Sift, a digital trust and safety startup that has raised over $100m to make the internet a safer place.

    In the episode, Jason opened up about battling depression while building a startup. We talk about his origin story, founding Sift, T groups and learning to talk about emotions, and the transformational power ayahuasca had for both of us.
