Team Human


Ep. 15 Julie Holland MD “Finding the Others”

Playing for Team Human today is psychiatrist, psychopharmacologist, and psychedelics researcher Dr. Julie Holland. Dr. Holland explains the role of psychedelics in helping people gain the new forms of information and awareness they need to become more fully human. Is there the potential for greater understanding and human connection through the psychedelic experience? Together Holland and Rushkoff explore this question, charting out a path toward greater empathy and solidarity.

Today’s monologue features Rushkoff on Timothy Leary and “Finding the Others.” Visit XY Magazine for his complete essay, featured as part of the recent relaunch of the magazine.

Dr. Holland’s latest book is Moody Bitches: The Truth about the Drugs You’re Taking, the Sleep You’re Missing, the Sex You’re Not  Having, and What’s Really Making You Crazy
