Superb!

I HIGHLY recommend this podcast, even - perhaps especially - for those not in South Africa. She does a fantastic job sharing scientific information, balanced with real stories of real people whose lives are changed by these medicines, along with Insights on the political legal climate in her country. It's both personal and educational and I look forward to each new episode.

BTW I'm particularly interested in the case of Monica Cromhout, who I heard interviewed on a different podcast. While I know things are in a holding pattern and courts move slowly, I'd like to hear updates of any. Perhaps an interview here, if not proscribed by attorneys etc?

I normally listen using a different podcast App, but added this show to the iTunes App just so I could post this review.

Great Podcast on Psychedelic and Depression!!

Leonie Joubert does an excellent job of covering the subject of the use of psychedelics such as psilcyobin aka magic mushrooms and the treatment of depression. Very well researched and presented.

Captivating and cosmic

Listening to you speak is like a sweet reminder of how much is left to learn and know in the realm of all things out of it :)
