Podcasts from the excellent Psychedelic Salon at

Podcast 128 - McKenna: "The State of the Stone"

In this 1995 talk, Terence McKenna gives one of his more hopeful talks about love and the state of humanity at the end of the millenium.

Podcast 127 - Leary: “How To Use Your Head”

"Now from the standpoint of the strategy of the genetic material, every living species is simply a creative solution to a packaging problem."

"This [early imprinting of young ducklings on orange basketballs instead of mother ducks] is both funny and tragic, because it raises the question, in the case of the human being, what accidental orange basketball have you and I been exposed to early in life?"

"At times it seems to us that one of the functions of the mind is to rationalize and protect an accidental early imprint."

"We suggest that psychedelic drugs may be seen as chemical agents which temporarily suspend your old imprints."

"The thing which excites us these days is the corollary concept of psychedelic RE-imprinting."

"I think that anyone who doesn’t experience, at some moment during their psychedelic sessions, and intense awe-full fear has been cheated by their psychiatrist or their bootlegger."

"LSD is the most powerful aphrodisiac ever known to man."
