This is an explosive and exciting conversation in which we probe the questions - What does addiction do to the brain? Is social media and modern life making us all addicts? Can treatment with psychedelics reverse the damage? How does modern technology take advantage of evolved weaknesses?You can expect to learn about addiction and the brain, treating addiction with psychedelics, metaphors, and your mind, how social media exploits evolved human weaknesses, why we need free will, why Whim Hof is superhuman, what anti-depressants are, and much, much more. This one is a real hitter! Enjoy!
