This week, we get biblical as Cody explores the evidence of entheogen use among the tribes of Israel and their psychopathic psychonaut of a leader, Moses. Amanda opens a new segment highlighting scientific psychedelic research, appropriately called Feed Your Head. We finish the show with a Psilly Story about porta potty shit demons and the importance of dose, set, and setting.

Later this month, Cody will be presenting at the 2017 Sunstone Symposium in Salt Lake City Utah on July the 29th with Bryce Blakenagel of the Naked Mormonism Podcast. Bryce and I have put together a research paper regarding evidence that the early Mormon church and it’s founder Joseph Smith were using psychedelic plant medicines as a sacrament. Over the next few weeks, we will be releasing more information as well as devoting a podcast episode on this theory, so stay tuned and please join us in Salt Lake City on July the 29th should you find yourself in the area.
