Tom is the author of multiple books regarding the usage and history of psychedelic drugs, which have been used by human beings since the dawn of civilization for spiritual and medicinal purposes. His most recent book, “LSD The Wonder Child: The Golden Age of Psychedelic Research in the 1950s”, details the bizarre yet incredible history of LSD–going from the usage of ergot in spiritual practices, to the CIA in various sadistic experiments, to hippies, scientists, psychologists, and intellectuals throughout the mid to late 20th century. We discussed religion, Carl Jung, Alaska cruises vs tropical cruises, the history of LSD, and much more. Enjoy!
