Season 4, Episode 11: Harvard Psilocybin Experiments

6/30/2022
Alright gang, this week we’re finally getting round to tackling Timothy Leary. A Psychologist. An advocate for Psychedelics and free thinking. A provocateur and a counterculture icon. Cited as both “the most dangerous man in America” and a “hero of American consciousness” Leary has been, for decades, an interesting figure to say the least. But rather than dive into a biographical exploration of Leary, in this episode we’re going to be looking at two of the most infamous experiments...

Enduring personal loss. Trauma and emotional depletion, he gave himself one last chance. After using his academic background to rebuild himself and taking to the skies in order to live his life well, he’s...

Potentially gippy inducing stage tricks aside, we also dive into the educational side of his...

Season 4, Episode 5 - Rage Room

5/12/2022
Alright gang, this week we’re letting it all out of our system. In the first (of hopefully more) experience episodes in Season 4, I smashed the bejesus out of some Christmas crockery. Rage Rooms or Smash Rooms as they’re also known, seem to have grown in popularity since and during the pandemic. Admittedly they do seem to be quite the cathartic release. To see if this is the case or if they’re simply just a gimmicky day out, I visited a local Rage Room and let rip upon a crate of glass...

Season 4, Episode 2 - Deep into the Internet (Video Edition)

4/21/2022
Alright gang, in an effort to create a silly, nonsensical palette cleanser of sorts, I decided to take a look at what is considered to be the weirdest websites of 2022. Within this random mix I found (to name but a few things) an AI that guesses what your doodles are. The hypothetical meat market of Amazon dating. A yodelling pickle. And a comprehensive guide that helps you talk to your cat about gun safety, satanism and so much more. If you've enjoyed this episode and you want to help...

Alright gang, this week we're taking a look at the world of furries. With the help of some willing furries, I learn about 'fursonas' and how they can be either be a mirror for somebodies personality or a sense of escapism. What role a pursuit plays in all of this and whether being a furry is an identity, a lifestyle, a hobby or all of the above. We also touch upon the possibilities of sinking too deep into an invented character and whether or not furry culture itself warrants the...

Alright gang, this week we're taking a look at the early work of Marina Abramovic.
