This video contains my review of the book “Smart Drugs & Nutrients: How to Improve Your Memory and Increase Your Intelligence Using the Latest Discoveries in Neuroscience” by John Morgenthaler and Ward Dean. It was published all the way back in 1991 but still has a lot of information for the biohacking community! It covers nootropics like aniracetam, piracetam, and many more!
At one point in time I was prescribed Adderall, an incredibly powerful stimulant. Something that is useful for many people but can have some nasty side effects including a feeling of physically feeling too jittery and restless (something that may be unwanted while desiring the mental focus it might provide.) In this video, I talk about my experience with the amino acid L-Theanine and if it assists with these side effects.
I sit down with Adrianne Jeffries & Emanuel Maiberg to talk nootropics at the Radio Motherboard studio in Brooklyn (actually, we were standing up!) They also try some nootropics! Emanuel comes in already on Alpha Brain by Onnit & Adrianne decides to hit some Optimind during the show.
We also consider:
– Why are noots so hot right now?
– There are disadvantages to self-experimentation? (Exhibit A: Noopept.)
– Research on nootropics is scarce. Why don’t nootropics companies pay for more studies into this stuff?
– What’s the deal with the butter in the coffee?

Today, I interview Biohackers Jonathan Roseland of Limitless Mindset and Ryan Ballow of Cortex Labs! Both of them had their YouTube channels terminated during the recent wave of nootropics related deletions. Join us as we talk about the aftermath of their experience, what they think is behind their mandatory exodus, where you can find them now, and their plans for the future. One thing is for sure, you can’t keep a Biohacker down.

This is my YouTube Crisis update: YouTube censorship is out of control.
Yesterday, I wrote about YouTube’s recent censorship of people talking about legal supplements being used for cognitive enhancement, including nootropics. Several LARGE YouTube channels have DELETED by YouTube for making this content (I also learned that someone had a channel about learning Archery that was deleted because it promoted “harmful or dangerous” content according to YouTube.)
After receiving strikes for reviewing products you can buy at Whole Foods, I have now deleted 263 videos off my channel. Years of content now gone. Even after this effort of deleting any video even showing a supplement on camera, YouTube has now disabled my ability to upload new videos entirely.
I will continue to post my work here and videos on DTube, however I cannot express enough how disheartening it is to lose a YouTube audience of 22,000 subscribers that took years to build. These are sad times for all content creators on YouTube. I have two final thoughts:
- Censorship HARMS communities
- Casually destroying years of someone’s work without rational review is NOT ethical.
That’s all for now.
