    Santa Is Psychedelic

    Santa Is Psychedelic

    Is it possible that the story of Santa Clause that we all know and love actually originated from ancient winter traditions that revolve around a hallucinatory mushroom? In this special bonus episode, Ronan takes a deep dive into a Christmas tradition of red and white and the theory that Santa's origin story is actually psychedelic. We explore the idea that Father Christmas – and other holiday symbols like flying reindeer, ornaments, and elves – could be traced back to shamans of long ago who brought healing and warmth to an otherwise cold and dark winter solstice. So get ready for a magical trip with Ronan to the North Pole to find out who Santa Clause is and what he's really all about.

    Coming Home | Bob Parsons

    Bob Parsons, entrepreneur and psychedelic philanthropist best known for founding the domain registrar GoDaddy, joins Ronan to discuss his harrowing combat experience in Vietnam and the ensuing PTSD, his path to psychedelic therapy and healing, how to address the failed war on drugs, and more! After returning home from the Vietnam War, Bob realized he was not the same person as before, and eventually became aware of his PTSD after years of struggle. After reading Michael Pollan’s book “How To Change Your Mind,” he immediately began exploring psychedelic therapy as an option to heal his trauma. Parsons is currently working with MAPS to help conduct clinical trials of MDMA-assisted therapy for FDA approval, and with Dr. Rachel Yehuda to help with PTSD research, and to train therapists to specialize in treating veterans and active-duty members with psychedelics.

    Natural Born Visionaries | Brian Muraresku

    Natural Born Visionaries | Brian Muraresku

    Brian Muraresku, author of “The Immortality Key,” joins Ronan to discuss how psychedelics may have been instrumental to the rise of Christianity, and why despite writing one of the most acclaimed books on psychedelics, Brian himself has never tried them. They dive into the mantra, “to die before you die means you don’t die when you die” and why it may be the secret to a lifetime of happiness. Brian’s debut book “The Immortality Key” explores pharmacological influence dating back to ancient times, impacting religion and even many of the scriptures we are all familiar with. His book argues that the use of psychedelics may have been instrumental to the development of many modern religions as we know them. Brian, a Georgetown Law graduate, also became the founding executive director of Doctors for Cannabis Regulation. Their work has been featured on CNN, ESPN, as well as The Washington Post and San Francisco Chronicle. Brian has also been practicing law internationally for fifteen years. So sit down, buckle up, and tune in to an episode you won’t want to miss!
