Pat Murphy and Charlie Grob
Today’s podcast features an interview in the Live Salon with filmmaker Pat Murphy and psychedelic researcher Dr. Charles Grob. During the course of the conversation the conversation drifted into several interesting tributaries. However, the main focus of our conversation was to discuss Pat’s new film, Psychedelia.
PSYCHEDELIA is an hour-long documentary film about psychedelic drugs and their ability to induce mystical and religious experiences. The film chronicles their use in controlled research studies prior to the cultural upheaval of the 1960s, when LSD was regarded as a promising medical breakthrough, as well as their recent re-emergence in psychiatry.
Featuring leading experts in the field of psychedelic research, the film tells the story of medical professionals who have re-introduced these compounds into a legal and growing field of study. First-person accounts from a study on end-of-life anxiety explore the profound, life-altering insights psychedelics induce in participants and what these insights might mean for society at large.
