    Ketamine Music Therapy

    Ketamine Music Therapy

    Ketamine treatment centers are opening all over Seattle. The psychedelic drug is used to help with PTSD, depression, anxiety, and other ailments, but it does come with controversy. These treatments look and feel much different than most mental health treatments. It also sounds different because music is an important part of Ketamine infusions. KEXP’s Rachel Stevens reports on how the treatments work.

miceee ,

Pod for the music nerd!

I usually listen live but the podcast is great for shows I miss - absolutely loved the Behind the Console series!
Keep up the great work, always enjoy the in depth content and interviews - the Tori Amos interview was so incredible.

Focused, concise,

Artfully drawing back the curtain on the reality of music culture and production. The first time this show really caught my heart was the recent five part series on Filipino artists and their impact on Seattle’s hip hop scene. Today just started the highlight on women and nonbinary audio engineers!

These interviews, and the care in which they are gathered is such a consistent delight. Thank you to everyone who works on this wonderful show!
