It’s so refreshing when you meet someone who understands what fulfills them and is actually doing it! It’s their calling. They’re mission driven. That is especially true for today’s guest: Mara Gordon, Co-Founder of Aunt Zelda’s. The drive to care for a loved one is a very powerful force. Mara, confronted with the challenge of helping her husband, when traditional methods had failed, turned to Cannabis. The impact was immediate, but unfocused. The obstacle in turning to Cannabis was that there was no data on effective dosing. She wanted a prescription, but ended up with a picnic! To a Process Engineer that is unacceptable. The ensuing journey in treating her husband, herself, loved ones, and eventually others embarked Mara down the road to solve the dosing issue for Cannabis. In the documentary “Weed the People”, and her TED Talk “Cannabis: Separating the Science from the Hype”, shares part of Mara’s journey of applying a collaborative, qualitative approach, in uncovering effective dosing for Cannabis. Her Aunt Zelda’s oil heavy Carrot Cake recipe was the perfect delivery method for some of those initial doses. That mission has now expanded to 4 companies, to deliver data-driven, Cannabis-based plant medicines, research, and knowledge for practitioners. Please enjoy the Amazing Founder’s Journey of Mara Gordon, Co-Founder of Aunt Zelda’s.

Dr. Death

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
