Do psychedelics bring us closer to god? Or do they prove religion is a neurological illusion? What kind of bush was Moses burning? What was in that apple on the tree of knowledge in the garden of Eden? If you come to my show, I promise all of these questions will be answered definitively. And there will be no need for any further dispute.
Since the dawn of mankind, humans have tried to get high in one way or another. Why? Altered states of consciousness can be profoundly dangerous or dangerously profound. Knowledge makes the difference. We welcome a panel of experts and comedians to discuss how these drugs work!
Trigger warning: this will be a frank discussion of drugs and drug use.
