TDR has introduced The Diamond Hands Podcast, a weekly broadcast featuring TDR Founder/President Shadd Dales, prominent industry investor Anthony Varrell, and TDR Lead Financial Writer Benjamin A. Smith to provide value-add investor insights into the verticals we cover. This includes analysis, the narratives moving our sectors of coverage, the stocks that we like best, and more. The weekly podcast is a natural extension to the TDR platform, which has always strived to become a multi-faceted platform for prescient industry content.
With Ben taking a few days off for some summer sun, we invited Numinus Wellness CEO Payton Nyquvest to the program to impart insights on where the current psychedelics landscape resides today.
