Informative, Good Quality, Intelligent Hosts

honestly thank goodness for this podcast. it's not gonna be for everyone, but this is the exact content i crave, content and perspectives not offered anywhere else, and in fact these are the perspectives that are actively being silenced not just in psychedelic communities but most other communities in the world!

listen to this podcast not to hear about "trippin balls bro whoaaaa" but rather to learn about corruption among psychedelic leaders, therapists, and entrepreneurs. to learn about leftist (aka sensible) politics. to learn about rampant sexual assault and cover ups in these psychedelic spaces. to learn why goop lab is BS. to hear about how the inevitable legalization and corporatization of psychedelics is extremely fraught and dangerous as of now. to learn about racism and how it relates to drugs. to learn about history.

to the reviewer who says this is just another political podcast and that's why you won't listen... there are a million people online who talk about doing psychedelics and trips and spiritual journeys and blasting open your third eye or whatever you were hoping for. this is literally the only podcast and online group that i know of thus far who connects these exact politics with psychedelic culture and really analyzes and points out problems, and goes over opportunities and proposes solutions. these voices and perspectives are so important. good work y'all.

Fearless & Refreshing (+5)

I’m really enjoying what I’ve heard so far! Psymposia has been increasingly offering fearless counter narratives in psychedelic discourse that I find necessary and refreshing. Conversations like these are long overdue and I’m excited to see where this goes.

Was good, now just more politics.

I was refreshed to have another podcast to listen to psychedelic discussions, but as of recently it has just become another political podcast. In a time where politics are inescapable, the last thing I’m interested in is more politics, regardless of how much I may agree with the opinions. Hoping they change course back to psychedelics, but until then I’ll be turning it off.
