The MAPS Podcast

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

I’m thrilled beyond measure to announce a new project that I’ll be involved with. Starting in late January I’ll be hosting the all-new MAPS (maps.org) podcast simply called “The MAPS Podcast”.

It will feature classic lectures and panels from many of the sensational past Psychedelic Science conferences, treasures from the Rick Doblin archives as well as all new interviews and content made just for this.

I’m honored to be a part of it and hope that I can help steer the podcast into the high-quality show that it deserves to be. Thank you to Brad Burge, Matt Neal and Rick Doblin for having me involved. God speed!

It's All Happening Podcast

IAH – Episode 37 – Rick Doblin

Rick and I explore the multi-verse, MAPS 30th Anniversary and the complicated, rewarding and revolutionary road that psychedelics has seen over the course of the last 50 years. Recorded off site at the University of Pennsylvania where Rick and I were both panelists at the BioEthics Film Conference. This is a podcast that I’ve been wanting to do since Day 1 and I’m thrilled that it came together.

Rick Doblin, Ph.D., is the founder and executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). He received his doctorate in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, where he wrote his dissertation on the regulation of the medical uses of psychedelics and marijuana and his Master’s thesis on a survey of oncologists about smoked marijuana vs. the oral THC pill in nausea control for cancer patients. His undergraduate thesis at New College of Florida was a 25-year follow-up to the classic Good Friday Experiment, which evaluated the potential of psychedelic drugs to catalyze religious experiences. He also conducted a thirty-four year follow-up study to Timothy Leary’s Concord Prison Experiment. Rick studied with Dr. Stanislav Grof and was among the first to be certified as a Holotropic Breathwork practitioner. His professional goal is to help develop legal contexts for the beneficial uses of psychedelics and marijuana, primarily as prescription medicines but also for personal growth for otherwise healthy people, and eventually to become a legally licensed psychedelic therapist. He founded MAPS in 1986, and currently resides in Boston with his wife and three children.
