Turn on and tune into Field Tripping, a podcast about psychedelics, the people that use them and what our renewed love affair with both says about who we are and where we’re going. Explore how psychedelics awaken new views on sex, science, business, fitness, life, and death in the lives of our influential and inspiring guests. Join us on a journey into psychedelic experiences and how they change the world and our lives – one trip at a time.
The podcast sometimes deals with some challenging or sensitive topics, so we ask that you please be thoughtful and use good judgment when considering some of the subjects discussed.
