Marc Gunther (a journalist who writes about EA sometimes: 1, 2, 3) has a new piece in the Chronicle of Philanthropy (a) about the recent wave of psychedelic research (supported mainly by private philanthropists).

Excerpt mentioning Good Ventures:

Others supporting the research include the foundation of Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and his wife, Cari Tuna; the foundation of Nick Pritzker, a venture capitalist and the former president of the Hyatt hotel chain, and his wife, Susan; George Sarlo, a Holocaust survivor and founder of an investment firm; the entrepreneur Elon Musk; Groupon co-founder Andrew Mason; and an anonymous Bitcoin millionaire known only as Pine, who says his philanthropy was inspired by a drug trip.
