Podcast Show 179: Herb Lab – Ayahuasca and other Psychedelic Plants
Psychedelic plants have been a part of our human heritage since we first rocked in the unsteady cradle of civilization. Last time we talked with Nick Polizzi, author of books like The Sacred Science, documentary filmmaker and explorer of ancient medicines about our culture’s fascination in hallucinogenic herbal traditions. This time we are exploring more psychoactive herbs, how they have been used and abused, and their effect on the modern world.
