On today's podcast, I talk with JR Rahn, the CEO and Founder of MindMed. Their work involves creating transformative medicines to address big problems in society like anxiety, ADHD and addiction. They are achieving this through the use of psychedelic inspired medicines. Right now, MindMed is collaborating with the psychedelic research lab at the University of Basel and the University of Maastricht. JR and I discuss his journey from working at Uber to founding a leading psychedelic company which aims to create the “antibiotic for addiction”, as he says. We talk about JR’s investor Kevin O’Leary (Mr. Wonderful) from the TV Show Sharktank, and we discuss why prominent public figures like him could have a powerful impact on the de-stigmatisation of mental health and psychedelics.
