Lorenzo Hagerty is an author, podcaster, entrepreneur and liver of many lives (check out his incredibly eclectic bio).
His show, The Psychedelic Salon, offers an extremely comprehensive collection of verbal serenades from disrupters and visionaries like Timothy Leary, the Alex Grey, Sasha Shulgin and many others. It’s definitely one of my go-to sources for brain-melting content. Peruse their library if you haven’t!
We've also got the wonderful whimsical genius of Bruce Damer back on the show. Bruce is a researcher at UC Santa Cruz focused on origin of life related work and he’s most definitely got the gift of poetic yarn-spinning and man, does he have plenty of yarns to pull from!

Technology is the sharpest double-edge sword mankind has ever forged. Depending on which reality tunnel you view the metaphorical cyber-sword through, it will either free us of death, and give us cybernetic superpowers, or birth ruthless AI overlords who will farm us for energy matrix-style, while sedating us in a hypnotic VR twilight.
Or, maybe a little bit of both.
It’s all worth exploring and considering, which is why we’ve got futurist, writer and founder of the Transhumanist political party, Zoltan Istvan on the show.
As our guide on this week's ride, we welcome another ridiculously intelligent, well-spoken open-minded multidisciplinary mind freak, Alexandre Tannous.
Alexandre has everything you want, the academic and research credentials, the musical background (he could easily show up somewhere with Zeppelin and you’d be like, oh yeah this guy’s in the band, no doubt). But more importantly, he’s done the subjective inner-work by traveling the world, participating in indigenous shamanistic ceremonies, steeping himself in history and mysticism and so much more.
