Welcome to the THINKING Podcast, produced by HVMN. 

Episode 34 features Geoffrey Woo returning to the mic with Brianna Stubbs, who is now formally a member of the growing HVMN team. Dr. Stubbs, coming from an impressive academic and athletic background, is leading our Research and Development team in our efforts to contribute to the space of human enhancement. 

Geoff and Dr. Stubbs discuss the differences between industry-funded research and government-funded research, not shying away from the uncomfortable truths and nature of any funded study. Dr. Stubbs dives into the difficulties scientists have including women into a study, in which standardizing is a challenging process due to constantly changing variables (i.e hormones) that are present in women. Geoff also ponders about the role of science and research development in the world of top-tier athletics, in which Brianna reveals that it is tough to convince elite athletes to partake in any experiment, likening them to a well-oiled machine in which any outside variable can throw them off their track.

Needless to say, the research world is a complicated beast. Luckily, we have one of the best researchers to make certain that HVMN has integrity around searching for the truth, while also having a sustainable business model that will continue to serve you all with the products you've come to know and love (plus more in the future)!
