Expectations Surpassed

I didn’t expect AttM to become a favorite psychedelic podcast but it has. I first landed here following guests in whom I had an interest, and thought, “Another young tripper with a microphone...I’ll listen to just this episode.” I kept coming back because he’s interviewed so many of the best in the fields of psychedelic science, therapy, sociology, etc, and eventually stayed because James is such a consistently thoughtful, careful, informed interviewer brining us the best there are to hear from.

Most well balanced psychedelic podcast I’ve heard

James W. Jesso has exposed me to many aspects of the psychedelic culture I never would have known about without listening to his show. His questions are always searching for depth and nuanced answers from his guests. I appreciate all I’ve learned from the show and all the care he takes making sure every show is the best it can be. Thank you James, and Keep up the good work!

Ayahuasca and Kevin Tucker

Bringing topics to light that may cause some folks to be uncomfortable, like colonialism, cultural appropriation the Ayahuasca Colonialism podcast with Kevin Tucker. Thank you for this podcast and for some folks it may make you uncomfortable to listen to. This is probably my favorite of podcast on this show which are many other great ones, I appreciate this one because not only do they talk about the Ayahuasca boom but the impact it has had on the native people and accessing their own plant medicine.
