About This Show
Each week I explore big ideas from a psychedelic perspective and a focus on cognitive liberty. I interview authors, scientists, doctors, researchers, psychotherapists, meditation teachers, activists, and many more.
My mission is to create a space for informative, inspiring and unconventional conversations that provoke unique explorations of deep thoughts, boundless creativity and challenge the status quo.
It's an exciting time for pioneering psychedelic research, with groundbreaking studies published from universities like Johns Hopkins, NYU, The Beckley Foundation, Heffter Institute and MAPS to name a few.
The recent explosion of the spread of information that the internet has given us has created more of a raised awareness in the population. We must continue to help in any way we can to have more people awake and aware.
This show is all about changing the world and honoring the rights to direct experience, cognitive liberty and freedom for all human beings.

MAPS Policy Fellow Ismail Ali: A Cosmic Warrior For Good | Human Rights, Civil Liberties, Racial Justice, Trauma & Healing
3 days ago
Ismail Ali earned his J.D. at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law in 2016, after receiving his Bachelor’s in Philosophy from California State University, Fresno, in 2012. As a law student, among leading and participating in other extracurricular activities which focused primarily on human rights, civil liberties, and racial justice, he also worked for the ACLU of Northern California’s Criminal Justice and Drug Policy Project. In addition, Ismail served as co-lead of Berkeley Law’s chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, where he coordinated events that helped educate the law school community about entheogens, challenge the stigma associated with psychedelic drug use, and critique the racial dynamics of the emerging cannabis industry in California. To support his work at MAPS, Ismail received Berkeley Law’s Public Interest Fellowship, a fellowship which provides funding for qualified Berkeley Law graduates who pursue legal work in the public interest. Ismail believes that psychedelic consciousness is a crucial piece of challenging oppression in all of its forms, and that legal access to psychedelics is an essential part of a progressive drug policy paradigm. He hopes to help develop and advocate for just, equitable, and creative alternatives to the failed war on drugs.
