    Guest speaker: Nikkita Oliver

    PROGRAM NOTES:



    If you only listen to one podcast from the Psychedelic Salon, I hope that it is this one. While these podcasts have been focused primarily about preserving talks by our elders and promoting the ideas of our “new elders”, today’s podcast is different. Between the covid-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter demonstrations we have a lot to consider, and we have some serious decisions to make. Of all the people that I know, the young woman whose ideas you will hear in this podcast, Nikkita Oliver, is the one person who I would follow unhesitatingly into our shared future. She is highly intelligent, a great poet, and a leader that I believe we can trust. After you listen to this podcast and hear her Convergence speech from 2019, her TEDx talk in 2016, and her poems, I hope that you will feel the same way.

    Guest speaker: QueerNinja

    PROGRAM NOTES:



    Today’s podcast, which is being released on 4, 20, 2020, is dedicated to and in tribute to our dear friend Queerninja, who departed this little planet earlier in the year. The Ninja was one of the early pioneers of podcasting, and he hosted one of the first music podcasts on the Internet. It was called “The Sounds of World Wide Weed”, and today’s podcast features a replay of the final program in that podcast series. To lighten the mood a bit, today’s podcast ends with Ron Shock’s “Best Damn Dope Story Ever.”

Episode 643

Listened occasionally over the years but ever since episode 643 dropped I can’t stop replaying it. Leonard is one of the most influential characters that helped shape many lives in the 90s and his reading of chapter 1 of his book puts me in a relaxed, meditative state. This book is medicine! Thanks for the awesome series and can’t wait to hear more. Also really hoping some of Sasha’s crew comes back on.
