DMT EP07 - John Sinclair - Still Kickin' Out the Jams...Motherf***ers
As a kid growing up in Detroit in the 60's and 70's interested in drugs, politics, and music, the 6'4" bearded, hairy, revolutionary poet, scholar, activist, musicologist, and self-described, “race traitor,” the figure of John Sinclair loomed large. John is the man behind the MC5, Iggy and the Stooges, and the Founder of the White Panthers, later the Rainbow People’s Party. Their platform: A total assault on the culture by any means necessary, including Rock n’ Roll, dope…and fucking in the streets. John was a hero of mine, and still is. At 77, he still writes columns, does poetry, and lives life according to his ethos, “a vow of beatnik poverty.”

DMT EP06 - Richie Ogulnick - The Johnny Appleseed of Ibogaine
This week's episode features a conversation with Richie Ogulnick. Richie is a pioneer of underground treatment with ibogaine in the United States. We talk about his mystical journey from being influenced by Howard Lotsof's serendipitous discovery of ibogaine's addiction interrupting effects, to traveling to Africa and finding a source for ibogaine HCL, and adapting Chilean psychiatrist and early psychedelic research Claudio Naranjo's protocol for using ibogaine during psychospiritual sessions to instead treat addicts. Other topics include harm reduction, discovering Heantos (an herbal combination from Vietnam) as a tool for addicts to mitigate their tolerance to opiates without detoxing, getting shutdown by the FDA, and his vision for treatment of opiate use disorder.
