Often, our curiosity pulls us into covering subjects that are interesting to brain aficionados, but don’t fit neatly into any one of our “normal” categories — things like futurism, bioethics and emotional intelligence.

Here are few of our favorites:
And check out the list below for the best of the rest...


Brian D. Earp joins Jesse to discuss the possibilities and ethics of making biochemical tweaks to the most celebrated of human emotions – love.


Jesse brings evolutionary psychologist Dr. Gordon Gallup on board this week for an in-depth look at semen chemistry and its mood altering effect on females.


I was the Cognitive-Enhancement Wild Man, the one whom the conservative members of the KCRW audience were giving dirty looks through their radios, while I waved my pom-poms for these so-called smart drugs.


Fridays will be my off-the-laptop day. All those never-quite-gotten-to to-do’s in the Physical World… Friday will be their day to come front-and-center.


Jesse takes a deep dive into the realm of psychedelic therapy and Holotropic Breathwork with Dr. James Eyerman. Take a deep breath and tune in.


There’s a new version of Axon out… and this time we didn’t take 9 months between updates — hooray! In our last Axon update, we gave a sneak peek at the pipeline for future features, and two of those features are now live.


Virtual Reality Therapy is a method for treating phobias and anxiety; Dr. Robert Reiner has been on the forefront for nearly three decades.


In this week’s episode Jesse takes a deep dive with Dr. Molly Crockett in to the world of enhancing morality through pharmacological interventions.


Some thoughts on physical health, the Mind-Body Problem, and mistaking myself for someone else after a haircut.


You, me, and everyone we know, falls under this impending, theoretical threat.  Even those of us who are using cognitive enhancers (those currently available) — we’re still a part of the “home team,” compared to those upgraded rascals from 2020, or 2030, or 2045, and whatever brain-enhancers they’re  using to eventually disenfranchise the biological “normals.”
