In a competitive market, everyone is looking for an edge to keep them going throughout the workday. But sometimes, another cup of coffee just doesn’t do the trick. Now, there’s a subscription service called Nootrobox, which is filled with pills designed to enhance cognition. Alex Morris, a contributing editor at New York Magazine, profiled the company in a piece titled “The Pill Freaks of Silicon Valley,” and spoke with Marketplace’s Molly Wood.
