MAPS Podcast: Episode 27 - Dieter Hagenbach, Albert Hofmann, and His LSD
Originally appearing here.
April 2018 marks the 75th anniversary of the first experiences with LSD that Dr. Hofmann embarked on in Basel, Switzerland. It's the perfect occasion to revisit this talk by Dieter which relies heavily on this fantastic book, "Mystic Chemist: The life of Albert Hofmann and His LSD".
Taken from the 2013 Psychedelic Science conference, Dieter Hagenbach gives an oral account of the life of Albert Hofmann and his discovery of LSD.
The impact that LSD movement had on Western culture is so vast and wide that it marks its place in history as one of the most influential movements that mankind has ever experienced.
If you don't know much about the history of Dr. Hofmann and the early days of LSD this podcast will present a wonderful tapestry of that. Additionally, head on over to maps.org to take part in the "Discovering LSD: 75 Years of LSD Experiences" web portal. You'll be glad you did!
