Podcast 304 – “Timothy Leary and Jerry Brown in 1995”


Guest speaker: Timothy Leary

Jerry Brown & Timothy LearyPROGRAM NOTES:

[NOTE: All quotations are by Timothy Leary.]

“I don’t even use the word ‘United States’. If there is such a thing I’m not a part of it. I’m not an American, I’m a Californian, and maybe I’m a Southern Californian.”

“I think any sensible person would do this, but since my 70s I have been planning, thinking about, my dying, because that’s going to be the climax, the final going away party. And you can’t believe the taboo when you start talking about how you’re going to die and the ways of dying. You’ll easily clear the cocktail party. No one wants to talk to you.”

  1. omg! “everybody gets the Timothy Leary they deserve”!!! Dr. Leary said that during the first caller… it flies by rather quickly, but it sums up the MYTHOLOGY very well!

    isn’t it funny how in aboriginal cultures, the shaman is just the shaman… but in the west here, thanks to our rather bizarre celebrity culture, the shaman is the hero, and the hero is celebrity. one simply can’t just exist here, one ends up being labeled.

    the trick is to NOT get noticed by that aspect of our culture… if only, right? lol
