“Cleaning” Up the Pharma Industry with Genexa Co-Founder David Johnson (S7EP09)

Brand on Purpose

Genexa co-founder David Johnson discusses how fatherhood inspired him and his co-founder, Max Spielberg, to find the clean medicine company. With David’s background in food chemistry and Max’s in FDA law, the two friends set out to clean up one of the few industries that had yet to be approached with the ‘clean’ mindset. Genexa is now only five years old, and David shines a light on how their passion helped to drive a two-year development and FDA approval process - with products today available everywhere, from Amazon to Target to Walgreens. David and Aaron discuss the lengthy and in-depth B Corp certification process, what it’s like to co-run a business built on friendship, and how David’s experience as a paratrooper in the Israeli Defense Force has impacted his approach to entrepreneurship.

Papering Over the Ugly Truth: The History of the Church and Racism (with David Johnson)

MindShift Podcast

It’s finally out! This is an absolutely incredible, informative and educational conversation I had a while back with David Johnson, host of the Skeptics and Seekers podcast. I met David when we were guests on the Still Unbelievable podcast, and he shared about a time when he’d been a guest on an atheist podcast and talked a lot about the church and racism–only to discover that when the episode finally aired, the host of that show had edited out that entire section. So right then I knew…we had to have that conversation. I hope you not only enjoy this conversation, but that you learn a lot also from this chat as well. Join the MindShift Podcast Patreon Community!
