SKRAPS is your podcast where we, on your behalf explore the stories of sparks of scientific brilliance in science and innovation. SKRAPS is the word sparks spelt backwards and also a play on the idea that ideas are written on back of a napkin or scraps of paper. We explore stories of people in science, while elaborating on the scientific details so that experts and non-experts can relate to science better in today's whimsical world that acts to spread mis-information.
 
PsychedeRx is a scripted narrative podcast with an innovative sound design that explores an enthralling story of an improbable drug class, as old as humankind itself, banished into exile, yet comes back soaring like a Phoenix from the ashes to save mankind's affiliction with mental health disorders. While many will refer to the psychedelic renaissance, this one of a kind audio documentary series of 10 episodes explores the stories with a neutral view to provide the listener with a clear unde ...

The NIH's Neuromodulation Prize was announced on Jan 17, 2002. The $9.8 million dollar prize pot will be awarded over three phases.

If anyone has not listened to La…

If you’ve listened to the PsychedRx series, or ever contemplated experiencing psychedelics, you’ve probably asked yourself what a trip is really like. Well, I’d very much like to tell you what it’s like, but it’s much like trying to describe an exact shade of purple velvet. It’s deep, rich, bright, dark, it changes as the light shifts. When you tou…
 
We talked before about the different ways to make a career in science. We've had people from finance, and entrepreneurs driving the start-up world. We've even had a scientific illustrator. There's one area of science and technology that we're covering for the first time today - this one is near and dear to our hearts because it's something that we …
 
Hello all, This is JoJo, your friend and co-host of SKRAPS. I grew up around construction. Tradesmen and experts at the crafts of building and repairing homes were omnipresent in my childhood. From a very young age, I knew more about framing than I did about Barbie dolls. I was comfortable in the world of power tools and knew the importance of “mea…
 
Over the ten episodes in this series, it’s clear that we are enthusiastic about the future of psychedelic medicines. There are so many potential applications for responsible, physician-assisted therapies that it almost seems as though psychedelics are a silver bullet, or a little black dress - perfect for any occasion and applicable to myriad disea…
 
Recently, one of our loyal listeners sent a very kind message. It was extremely appreciate of our PsychedeRx series and asked a key question about how we went about doing the music as they referred to. That's when I realized that what I had taken as a necessary and mandatory part of our podcast was appreciated by the listener. It was a very pleasan…
 
New molecules, new IP, new opportunities. How can investors be induced to support the massive, but necessary funds required to support the important and carefully regulated research necessary to bring psychedelic therapies to market. Not to be crass, but if something isn’t going to bring a profit, it’s unlikely to receive much funding, regardless o…
 
Mushrooms changed the world in the 20th century, some say. Others say, psychedelics are older than humankind. But instead of synthesising molecules and providing it people in a clandestine manner, what if, proper systematic drug discovery and development was done to make psychedelics better? In this penultimate episode of PsychedeRx, we explore a f…
 
This re-run was triggered by a news article of a horrible event in Ecuador where a prison riot killed 68 people. Such type of events are becoming increasingly commonplace due to organised crime. The rioters and instigators must be dealt with appropriately to control the violence, but beyomnd that where does that leave us? We can take one stance, wh…
 
Zeus gave Sisyphus the eternal punishment of forever rolling a boulder up a hill in the depths of Hades for his crimes of being a trickster and twice cheating death. “Then I witnessed the torture of Sisyphus, as he wrestled with a huge rock with both hands. Bracing himself and thrusting with hands and feet he pushed the boulder uphill to the top. B…
 
A cast will help a broken bone to heal, a tourniquet will help to stop the bleeding in a limb, an aspirin will alleviate a headache, time (and ice cream) will help to heal a broken heart.

We discuss previously underappreciated personal stories of how the Psychedelic Renaissance was sparked since 1971. Description: 1971 was the year when drug prohibition came into force.

It's the start of Season 4 of SKRAPS. So first, credit where it is due, thanks so much for the support! Have you ever wondered where the food you eat comes from? No, we do not talk about your carbon footprint or the location of the farm Food and flavour evokes a strong sense of nostalgia, likes and dislikes in our mind so much so that a particular …
 
We’ve spent some time already on the definition of psychedelic - and we’ll spend more time before this series is over. But, Skraps is a podcast whose roots are run deep in the sciences, we couldn’t ignore the topic of the basic pharmacology of psychedelics. This episode is a primer for citizen scientists and holds some intriguing information for th…
 
“Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of men? The Shadow knows!” But seriously - who knows? And are the men evil? Or is it their hearts? Or is it the means that they employ? Can their cause serve as cover? Can there be righteous justification for some of the horrendous things done in the name of self-preservation? In the short gap between World W…

Drug discovery doesn’t happen in a vacuum. So much of the world’s geopolitical activities affect what happens both inside and outside of the lab. Lysergic Acid Diethylamide was such a curious drug that there were seemingly no limits to how and when it would be tested. Episode three of PsychedeRx kicks off with an LSD-laden military training exercis…

In episode two of PsychedeRx, Peyote comes north to the good old US of A. And it’s not just for religious ceremonies anymore, either. Spanish conquistadors and European explorers, seeking to dominate t…

If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Help ‘Em You can’t fight fire with fire. Or can you? You can’t treat addiction with drugs. Or can you? You can’t bandage bruises to a brain. Or can you? You can never expect a cop to have compassion and fight the system. Or can you? There are so many dichotomies when it comes to life and how we think it should be lived. We’re…

After almost 40 episodes of a project that Arun apparently had little faith in, we're going to take a look back at some of our favorite episodes, some hints of what's coming up next, and what celebrity researcher intimidates JoJo the most. After this episode, we're going to take a week or two sabbatical in order to wrap up our big project. In the m…
