Show Notes

Psychedelics aren’t only about getting high, and a new wave of startups is here that’s all about using natural and synthetic drugs to tackle the globe’s growing mental health crisis. In episode two, we’ll speak to Sifted Iberian correspondent Tim Smith about how psychedelics got from Ancient Greece to the VC boardroom. We'll also hear from a founder who took his employees off on a team-building psychedelic retreat that almost went very, very wrong. Finally, 5-year-old Eliza will grill a magic mushroom startup CEO in our second episode of Baby Shark Tank.
