    PROGRAM NOTES:



    Date this lecture was recorded: April 4, 2020



    Bruce Damer and Dennis McKenna engage in a spirited conversation for a tribute to Dennis’ brother, Terence. This conversation was recorded on April 4th, 2020 at an online event held during the early phases of the COVID-19 epidemic. This tribute to Terence marked the 20th anniversary of his death, on April 3, 2000, a day which we have come to call “Terence Day” or perhaps more fun for everyone: “International Boundary Dissolution Day”.

    Guest speaker: Rio Hahn

    PROGRAM NOTES:







    Date this lecture was recorded: August 13, 2020







    Today’s program features a recent conversation in the live salon with Rio Hahn. He is an explorer, photographer/filmmaker, and author. Popularly known by the sobriquet “Rio,” given to him during his Amazon River explorations. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society; a founding and life member of the Rainforest Club; a Fellow, two-term Director, and past Ombudsman of The Explorers Club, as well as serving three terms as Chairman of the San Diego Chapter. He is the recipient of five Explorers Club Flags, a licensed sea captain, an open water diver, and a founding member of the International Society for Ethnopharmacology. And I should add that he is a friend of mine.







    I invited Rio to the salon to tell his stories about the time in the Amazon when Terence and Dennis McKenna joined Wade Davis on the RV Heraclitus for their now-legendary meeting in the jungle. However, the high (no pun intended) point of our conversation was his in-depth discussion of datura. This is the first time that datura has been discussed in the salon.

    PROGRAM NOTES:



    Date this lecture was recorded: July 13, 2020.

    Today’s podcast features Brandon Quittem whose essay, “Bitcoin is the Mycelium of Money” provided us with a launching pad for a lively discussion about ways in which the world’s financial system may experience turbulence brought about by cryptocurrency. In addition to talking about the basics of digital money, we also discussed blockchain technology, psychedelics, and Bitcoin.

    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.
