On January 7th, I celebrated the first episode recorded in 2014 by having a great conversation with Lorenzo Hagerty on Overthinking with Brad Allen. Lorenzo is currently the host of the Psychedelic Salon podcast, along with also previously having careers as an attorney, a U.S. Naval officer, electrical engineer, motivational speaker and more during his 71 years on this planet.
We discussed his podcast, along with the controversial topic of psychedelic drugs. I understand that there are some strong opinions on both sides of this topic. I encourage everyone to listen to our viewpoints, and to consider the complex nature of this topic. The real issue our country has with drugs, is the black and white nature in which we have discussed them in the mainstream for the majority of the last three decades. If we all accept that this is a complex subject, we can potentially understand these substances and each other a little better.
