32: Another Mormon on Mushrooms

When we recently stumbled upon a VICE article about an upcoming book titled “Mormon on Mushrooms”, we obviously had to talk to the author!Brandon Crockett is the author of the upcoming book "Mormon on Mushrooms" detailing his Mormon upbringing, relationship with a wayfaring Rosicrucian alchemist, discovery of psychedelic enthusiast Terence McKenna, departure from the faith and subsequent fascination and experimentation with psychedelics. Born in California, Brandon now lives in Australia (thanks to an experience he and his partner had on edibles). His story was recently published in VICE and you can email him at MormonOnMushrooms@gmail.com. He promises he'll respond, especially if you know a literary agent. Such a fun discussion! You’re going to love Brandon’s energy.Links:Brandon's VICE ArticleThe Entheogenic Origins of Mormonism: A working hypothesis - Authors: Robert Beckstead, Bryce Blankenagel, Cody Noconi, and Michael Winkelman Naked Mormonism Episode John Hopkins playlist for psilocybin research Article about playlistThe Secret Teachings of All Ages, Manly P Hall Terrance McKenna Video
