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.

Connectivity & Cognitive Liberty W/ LSD Wizard Casey William Hardison
1 day ago
Casey William Hardison is an entheogenic activist and psychedelic chemist who most famously known for getting busted making LSD In the U.K. and defending himself in court, by acting as his own lawyer during his trial. Instead of arguing he did not commit the acts, he argued that--as long as he harmed no one--he had the human right to engage in his chosen entheogenic praxis. Casey stood for cognitive liberty and freedom of thought and continues to do so to this day. During his trial, Casey challenged the drug laws as a discriminatory affront to free thought, therapeutic choice and free religion. The trial judge rejected these arguments and an eight-week trial ensued after which Casey was convicted on March 18, 2005 on 6 of 8 counts and sentenced to 20 years imprisonment on April 22, 2005. Aside from being known for being kidnapped by men with guns for partaking in a peaceful loving activity, Casey has attended entheogen-related conferences, wrote articles for the MAPS Bulletin, The Entheogen Review, and contributed to Erowid. Casey is a freedom fighter of the highest order of love and light. Extensive show notes and links are below. if you enjoy this show please leave a 5-star rating and review on iTunes.
