As the technology of virtual reality continues to progress, it is important that we look beyond the uses gaming companies, Facebook, and Samsung will develop it for.

We have her on the show to talk about Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert (now known as Baba Ram Dass), who they were on the surface of history but also who they were as people, friends, and members of a larger community.
We also talk about the process of making this film and why she felt telling the story of these two men was so important that she was willing to invest 19 years of her life into making it. (Also, how it was she got Robert Redford to narrate this film about counter-cultural heroes!)
Personally, watching this film was perspective altering for me, which I talk about in the episode. Having been exposed to an intimate revealing of people whom I had only known as the legends that had come before me, was deeply meaningful.
If you do, or don’t know who these men are it’s still a worthy listen, as, like Gay proclaims in the film, “whether you know them or not, chances are they changed your life”.
“The True Light Of Darkness is a literary exploration of the turbulent struggles involved in entheogenic shadow-work. focused on the Author’s more disturbing encounters with the magic psilocybin mushroom, this book confronts the demons laying wait in the dark recesses of the psyche. This is its soundtrack.
Featuring exclusive audio samples from the author, this album flows with dark and tripped out downtempo psybass and womp that bends the mind and moves the body. ”
The inaugural episode of what I imagine will be a podcast to reckon with. Dan Cleland, the man behind Pulse Tours, had me on his show to talk about psilocybin. However, it seems we talked more about the effect of global shadow emergence and the responsibility of politicians to face the unsheathed entheogenic reality.
We also get to talking about my traumatic experience in Peru back in 2014. An interesting topic to discuss with Dan as he runs the retreat where it happened and was present during the incident.
