Can Psychedelics Change Your Mind?

Wed 05 June 2019,

Michael Pollan discusses the medical and scientific revolution taking place around psychedelic drugs – and tells the story of his own life-changing psychedelic experiences.

Diving deep into both the latest brain science and the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists, Pollan talks about the scientists, professionals, seekers and patients exploring the effects of LSD on our minds, creativity and health. He sifts through the historical record to separate the truth about these mysterious drugs from the myths that have surrounded them since the 1960s, and asks how, in a world that offers us both suffering and joy, we can do our best to be fully present and find meaning in our lives.

In conversation with Sarah Ditum.
