Episode 4 – The Future of Microdosing

This month I take a look at microdosing, and what the future holds for the practice in regard to large scale production of psychedelics to meet upcoming need. I talk with a Real Live Scientist to get his opinion on safety concerns having to do with genetic modification of bacteria that will mass produce psilocybin, aimed at providing the chemical to future consumers. We also chat about just what is genetic modification as well as if itโ€™s even a good idea as an alternative to mushrooms.

Episode 3 – The Dark Side

In this episode, I tell the tale of how I found out first hand, that taking a psychedelic voyage…sometimes it’s not all rainbows and unicorns.

I found this information after I recorded the episode but I really think it’s worth sharing here. If you find yourself in the middle of a challenging trip, or someone you know is in that predicament, there is a harm reduction service online with immediate chat service to help you through. It’s called “TripSit” and it looks to be really amazing, good work!


Episode 2 – Synthesizing The Self

In this episode, I take a very interesting voyage to the Netherlands and to a psilocybin retreat center known as Synthesis.
