I listen to a LOT of content and thought it was time to share some of the gems from my personal collection with you.

Here is a short list of highly curated podcast episodes that delve into the ethical, the mystical, and the downright revolutionary aspects of psychedelics.

These podcasts are your gateway to a world often whispered about but seldom explored in such depth.

Why Did I Choose These Episodes?

The specific podcasts selected here are intended to provide a very comprehensive understanding of the scientific, social, and personal impact of psychedelic compounds.

Intertwined with the experience of alternate states of consciousness are substance abuse and a centered mind, which is why the last two podcasts on this list are about addiction and about the Shaolin Buddhist state of mind.

Should you invest the time to listen to all these episodes not only will you have a very robust and complete understanding of the psychedelic renaissance but also the human condition.

You might want to make some notes, plan a long walk, and definitely make sure your Bluetooth earphones are charged.
