American Trip: Ido Hartogsohn

Plus Three | September 9, 2020

Dr. Ido Hartoghson joins the show to talk about the ideas in his new book, American Trip: Set, Setting, and the Psychedelic Experience in the Twentieth Century  Acknowledging psychedelics as non-specific amplifiers of consciousness, we discuss different historical (and present) paradigms of use in order to interrogate the role of psychedelics within our culture. As we find ourselves staring down a number of existential questions, we must ask ourselves, “What do we hope to achieve through our personal and cultural exposure to psychedelics?”

Co-hosts: David Nickles, Brian Normand, Brian Pace. Editor: Matt Payne.
