James W. Jesso interviewed by Swedish political satirist Aron Flam for the DEKONSTRUKTIV KRITIK podcast

It presents his theories on reality, God, quantum mechanics and 5-MeO-DMT that are present in Tryptamine Palace. In this interview, we scratch the surface of those theories but advance beyond the Tryptamine Palace and explore the topics of his most recent book, The New Psychedelic Revolution — the rich history of visionary art, modern festival culture, the rising popularity of 5-MeO-DMT, and his psychedelic philosophies on the nature of mind.

This one goes into a pretty dark place at some points, including one of my first public explorations of my drug-induced psychosis episode back in 2009 and both of our dark encounters with ayahuasca. Plus a bunch of fun stuff too 😉
I knew this was going to be an opportunity of a lifetime, not only for myself but for you as well! There was a unique dynamic between us that morning and I knew I wanted to catch it for you. Enjoy!
