MAPS Podcast: Episode 29 - Michael Pollan Interview
Originally appearing here.
Michael Pollan discusses his new book How to Change Your Mind - What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression and Transcendence.
Michael beams into the MAPS Podcast for an all-new episode of the show. His iconic books on the nature and ethics of food have become staples within the zeitgeist of the modern diet and sustainable agriculture. Now, as evidenced in his new book and this podcast, he's taken on the world of psychedelic science and research with as much insight and objectivity as you would expect from him.
Zach Leary's conversation with Michael dives into the importance of the research he studied while writing the book, the origins of his interest on the topic, and his own personal experiences with psychedelic medicines.
For more than thirty years, Michael Pollan has been writing books and articles about the places where nature and culture intersect: on our plates, in our farms and gardens, and in our minds. He is the author of the new book How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence and five New York Times bestsellers.
