  1. I’m glad he explained the reason he said No to the question about his first LSD experience

    I haven’t forgotten the incredible profound epiphany I had in Hawaii 1980 at Puʻuhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park formally
    The City of Refuge , as I was already committing a federal crime on a very regular basis. The humanity of such a place , a place of refuge , instead of the barbaric nature of prison which would hang over me for the decades I was full time ganja growing.
    Thanks for letting me share

  2. One good thing though about the interviewers she didn’t talk too much, which interviewers often do with very interesting guess, talking over them shortening their thoughts. I think she did a good job in this regard by giving him space to speak. I would like to see the video of this if anyone knows where I can find it that would be great!

    [COMMENT by Lorenzo] I also think that Anja conducted a good interview. IMO, it was better than I could have done. Perhaps the video of the interview will be of interest:


  3. I think Anja did a wonderful job, as does everyone else. She is the co-director of the London Psychedelic Society, which, speaks for itself. She has hosted many notables, and is well loved.

  4. William Leonard Pickard is a living legend. What a shame to have him interviewed by someone with such poor technique, the woman hadn’t even read his book which is just embarrassing. Thankfully he is a fucking legend and carried the podcast despite this unfortunate interviewer
