#045: Axon: an App for the Nootropics Community

August 31, 2014

Spoiler Alert June, 2016

Update:  We have made the sad decision to pull the iOS mobile app from the iTunes App Store and focus our software development efforts on web applications that won’t discriminate against our Android-using friends.  The strong majority of our users have always come to us over web platforms, and we’re redoubling our efforts in that direction.  Thank you to everyone who used the mobile app during the almost two years that it was active.

In a shocking break from convention, Jesse interviews himself, about the soon-to-be-released mobile app Axon, aimed at the nootropics-loving community in general, and Smart Drug Smarts fans in particular.  Within a few days of the publication of this episode, Axon should have made it past Apple’s gatekeepers and be freely available for public download.

This episode also features what is probably the longest-ever (and possibly most attention-worthy) Ruthless Listener-Retention Gimmick in the history of Smart Drug Smarts.
