Part 2 - Good Drug Bad Drug with Dr. Rob Colbert
This is Part 2 of our conversation with Dr. Rob Colbert, a practicing therapist and participant in the MAPS MDMA-assisted therapy study. In this episode we go even further down the rabbit hole addressing the roots of drug prohibition and its failure to reduce the social harms of substance abuse... and maybe it was never meant to...
If you enjoyed part 1, or were maybe even challenged by it, be sure to listen in as we dive into some of the questions and critiques listeners raised after our first conversation. Do we really want to be more open about drug use as a culture? Does creating access to taboo substances only propel more people to experiment with substances like heroin? And what percentage of drug users actually fit the stereotype of burned out junkies stealing money for their next fix?
...The answers may surprise you. Enjoy!
Good Drug Bad Drug with Dr. Rob Colbert - Part 1
What if we could talk openly about our use of drugs and mind altering substances? Could we create safe cultures of use around drugs like LSD, Psilocybin, MDMA and others, so that kids... and adults... wouldn't need to sneak off and experiment behind closed doors, without the information that could keep them safe?
My guest this week is Dr. Rob Colbert, a practicing psychotherapist and a co-investigator in the MAPS MDMA-assisted therapy study through the FDA. He is also a member of The Nowak Society, a Colorado community building empowered relationships through the use of psychedelics.
In Rob's view, there aren't "Good Drugs and Bad Drugs"... there are just drugs... and we should have the right to safely integrate these substances into our communities through open conversation and education. Not just for the treatment of illness, but for the betterment of well people everywhere.
Enjoy the show.
The View from Shēiπ Mountain
Welcome to season 2! Today we journey up Sheep Mountain with Tomas Herera, a natural born storyteller, filmmaker and big thinker. Together we go down the rabbit hole of broken-by-design economics designed to ensnare people where they are, regardless of their class. We then pit capitalism vs. communism, workers vs. automation and hedge funders vs. reddit before a left turn into the "most beautiful equation in mathematics" takes us on a wild ride through the nature of reality, fractal dimensions, self identity and a lively debate on whether or not "everything is OK." Enjoy!
Getting Fired is a Blank Canvas
We tend to identify with our jobs and build a big part of our self image around "what we do". I know my image of self was totally twisted up in the company I founded 10 years ago... Well, I just got fired from my company by its new owners. Now I'm on a road trip quest to shed my old self and embrace the opportunity and anxiety of the blank canvas of life.
