Episodes Categories

We’ve arranged our episodes by category on the home page and in the menu, up top.   So you know where you’re navigating to, here’s a short explanation of each…

  • Brain Health

    Head here for the basics on how to get your brain into tip-top shape.

  • Neuro-Tech

    The latest applications of technology to the brain and nervous system.  From eyeglasses to brain-computer interfaces and everything in between.

  • Smart Drugs

     Here, we dig into the main focus of our show:  Listen to nootropics self-experiments and check out insights from doctors, pharmacists, and other smart-drug virtuosos.

  • Nutrition

    Everything we consume affects how we think.  World-renowned nutrition authorities school us on what we should be eating to maximize our brain-power.

  • Fringe

    Sometimes, a step in the right cognitive direction is dependent on some out-of-the-box thinking.  Here, we explore some satellite topics that affect our overall well-being, and touch on some interesting “things to ponder.”

All our back-episodes are also viewable in order of publication on our Episodes page.

What about the legality of all this stuff?

“Drugs” is a scary word, right — not just physiologically, but also legally.  Check out this episode on the Internet purchase of prescription drugs (something frequently done without a prescription).
