Changa's Alchemy (DMT) w/ Giorgia Gaia ~ Ep 53

Simply put, Changa is a powerful psychedelic smoking blend. It is a combination of herbs infused with dimethyltryptamine (DMT) and containing some form of monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOi). However, describing the "simply put" physical parameters of a psychedelic compound is as gross an understatement as saying sex is, simply put, a penis penetrating a vagina.... there is SO MUCH MORE to it than "simply put", which is why we have Giorgia Gaia on the show. Giorgia Gaia---author of...

The Metaphysics Of Consciousness w/ Bernardo Kastrupt ~ Ep 50

What is Consciousness? Is it unique to human cognition or is it universal and permeating all things? Is it an epiphenomenon of brain activity or a universal constant? Do all things 'have' consciousness or are they 'of', 'in', or 'by' consciousness? Who and what are we, humankind, in the grander process of Consciousness itself?

Bop Apocalypse: Jazz, Race, The Beats & Drugs w/ Martin Torgoff ~ Ep.47

If you had to point to any singular example of institutionalized racial prejudice in America, the so-called drug war is a shining example. The prohibition of drugs in the United States, and subsequently much of the Western world, has its origins in racism, classism, and xenophobia (as well as the socio-economic control of industry, but that's a different story for a different time). The war on drugs was a classist and racist war on people of color (the origin of the Marijuana Tax Act in...
