Welcome to the long awaited second episode of What is Real?! We’ve located the long lost tape! We found the recording of our latest patient. It wasn’t my fault I smashed the tape to pieces! Just be happy that I was able to recover the audio at all.

In this recording we speak with Mario Gibney. We learn from his experience with psychedelics and get his insight into best practices with their usage.

Psychedelics have been used for centuries across many different cultures for various reasons. They are extremely powerful pathways to radical self discovery and change. We explore the basics of psychedelic usage and the pitfalls involved.

We invite you to do your own research. There are mental health ramifications associated with psychedelic usage. These drugs are serious business and should not be taken carelessly.

Check your local laws before taking any psychedelics. We are not going to tell you to break the law. Make your own calculations and take your own risks. We aren’t your parents though.
