For today’s episode of Field Tripping, psychedelic explorer, award-winning journalist and author, Don Lattin, joins us to kickstart our first season. Don’s most recent work, Changing Our Minds, chronicles a quiet revolution underway in our understanding of how psychedelic drugs work – and how they can be used to treat depression, addiction and other mental health diseases. In this episode we discuss:
- The current psychedelic renaissance and what it means to the future of mental health;
- Don shares what it looks like to take a bad trip – and how to deal with it;
- How ‘The Great Pause’ caused by COVID-19 is an opportunity for psychedelic counterculture to reshape how we live, what we think, and who we value.
