From the event website:
Shane Mauss is a stand-up comedian, science communicator and a psychedelic advocate. Head Talks is his new tour where he is joined by a psychedelic researcher in each city for a show combining all three of his worlds into one two-hour show.
Format (each show is different, but this is an example of what to expect):
- History – Shane will host the show and open with comedy about the history of psychedelic research before introducing special guest, anthropologist Sophia Rokhlin.
- Ayahuasca – Sophia will give a talk about her book When Plants Dream: Ayahuasca, Amazonian Shamanism and the Global Psychedelic Renaissance (Watkins, 2019) about the global spread of ayahuasca and plant communication.
- DMT – Shane will take you for an exciting and harrowing journey into the complex worlds of DMT. (Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of these substances)
- Q&A – The show ends with a fun, informative and funny Q&A with the audience.
