What if Psychedelics Could Heal? Michael Pollan with Hamilton Morris

May 29, 2019

There’s a new medical and scientific revolution taking place around psychedelic drugs. What if the drugs associated with “turning on, tuning in and dropping out” hold the key to treating a series of health afflictions?

Michael Pollan—bestselling author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food—is the perfect “participatory journalist” to undertake a brilliant and brave investigation into this revolution. In his latest book, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence, Pollan explores the history, use, and potential of such drugs as LSD and psilocybin mushrooms to treat conditions from addiction to anxiety. Join us as he shares insights and answers questions about his research, and the discoveries he made on this remarkable journey, with journalist/pharmacologist Hamilton Morris of “Hamilton's Pharmacopeia.”
