Podcast 655 – “Datura Tips from a Psychedelic Sailor”

Guest speaker: Rio Hahn 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 ...

Podcast 653 – “We Cannot Have a Pacified Movement”

Support Lorenzo on Patreon.com 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.

648 – “Terence McKenna and Social Distancing”

Support Lorenzo on Patreon.com Guest speaker: Terence McKenna PROGRAM NOTES: [NOTE: All quotations are by Terence McKenna.] “A person who does DMT once a year is a fanatically heavy user, I would say.” “One way of judging how toxic a drug, or a plant, is is to ask yourself the question ‘How long after I take it do I feel completely normal?’ “ “You want a surgical strike on the synapses, is what you’re going for, not splattering all kinds of junk all over the place.” “Growing the mushroom teaches you cleanliness, punctuality, attention to detail, steadiness, all of these virtues, which are the very virtues you need to travel smoothly in that dimension [on a magic mushroom trip].” “Here’s a career for somebody. No hallucinogenic insect has ever been found, and yet there are persistent rumors in different parts of the world of either a butterfly or a beetle that is hallucinogenic.” “As to why [psychoactive plants] have this peculiar effect that they do in us, I think tha...

Podcast 647 – “Why Burning Man”

Support Lorenzo on Patreon.com Guest speaker: Android Joines PROGRAM NOTES: This Palenque Norte Lecture was recorded at Burning Man in August 2019. “Burning Man is like a handicap Olympics for art. Everybody gets a medal. There’s no bar at all. The bar went away. Anything fits in. And we realize the handicap that all of us have in common is that we have the handicap of our trauma. Because it’s our trauma, I believe, that is one of the unifying factors that brings us out here. Healthy people don’t go out to the middle of the desert, to go do drugs, and get naked with other healthy people.” –Android Jones Android Jones Website Samskara An experience by Android Jones [ DMT Simulation ] Dr. Bruce Damer performing “Fire In The Sky” with DJ DISSOLV on music & Android Jones live painting on two LED screens on the Lucent Temple of Consciousness stage at Lightning in a Bottle, May 28, 2016 Shpongle – Android Jones Visuals Shpongledroid Tour in New Orleans on 11-23-19 at Joy Theater ...
