The FDA Has Lost the Trust of the American People
"So it comes my turn to talk about it and I know that FDA and jewel are on the agenda cut number 24 Jacob, please. I don't hear anything from the administration about fentanyl. And those numbers are through the roof. It's a tomb and the fentanyl that all of us agree is the number one part of the border crisis is what we have to be focused on to kill the 107,000 American last year. It is a wide open border. I know you wanted to talk about the FDA and Joel. And I have to say, why are we focusing part of the federal government? The FDA on regulating jewel when we can't regulate the border. Why do we assume the federal government can do anything when it can't do the first thing, which is to control the border. As Molly said, the cartels control the border, not that. And administration, so why would we trust the FDA, which had a very bad year anyway in the course of COVID? They blew the Johnson & Johnson pause. They blew in fact, they blew a lot of the Abbott laboratory process. They do not have a great reputation right now and they're shutting down jewel. I'm not a fan of Joel. Why in the world would we trust them when the government can't do anything on its number one job?

"When you go back in history, there was many black people who own slaves. The first legal slave owner and the history of slavery in America was a black man. First legal slave owner, black man Anthony Johnson. If you don't believe me, go look it up. Anthony Johnson was the first legal slave owner in the United States of America, and that we know now is the United States of America. And he had two indentured servants.

Joe Biden Falls off His Bike
"Well, remember Artie Johnson, one of the stars of laughing, he used to play a character where he had a little yellow slicker on with a little rain hat and he'd ride around on a little tricycle. And he would suddenly just tip over on the tricycle. And that's what all I could think of when Joe Biden toppled over, it was such a well scary scene. When you're knocking on 80, you don't want somebody falling over on a bike. And he just, the scary part was it looked like he collapsed. Donald Trump Jr. tweeted, I'm not sure there's ever been a more perfect metaphor for the current state of our country than Biden falling off his bike while standing still for literally no reason. I mean, the argument is it would have been better if he like hit something or trip fell over something or, you know, but he just stood there and then sort of fell.

NBC to Provide Fair Telecast of US Open
"You know what, I'm glad I'm glad it's not faldo and I'm glad it's not Nance calling this thing. We got the NBC crew calling this call in the U.S. open this week and I think that's great because obviously CBS and the PGA Tour are so in bed with each other that they wouldn't be able to get over showing Dustin Johnson contending at the end in a U.S. open. So I'm glad NBC's got it. I think we'll get a very fair telecast this week. With them having it said CBS.
Doug Reacts to Tuesday's Primary Results
"The recent elections in on Tuesday's primaries, we had it all over this last week and 7 states, Mississippi included California, South Dakota, others. The big results out of that that I want to share with you are not that surprising. Incumbents across the country are winning. And they're winning in fairly record numbers. And we saw that in Georgia. We've seen it in other places. And even some of those that had thought going in that might have a problem with dusty Johnson up in South Dakota who voted for the January 6th commission incurred the wrath of former president Trump and others who voted for that. One with 59%. Kristi Noem, the great governor of South Dakota. She just blew it out. She won her primary. Looking probably to also win the general election up there easily as well. We did see some interesting results though in Mississippi. We had two sitting congressmen, both get put into runoff. One Michael gass down there was one who also voted for that January 6th commission. He actually is in position to lose that seat. Possibly. And the runoff here in about three weeks. He was out polled by an upstart conservative who is running that race. We'll see what happens as far as endorsements coming through in the Nazi. But also the one that was most interesting to me was state Plaza's race down in south Mississippi, Plaza has been in 6 terms now, representing the southern coast of Mississippi. And he only got 31% of the vote in his race against three or four other folks in sheriff isael down there. Is it 25%? He was in second place. There's a runoff going to be happening now. My understanding is just coming out of this that the. Grouping down there has gotten around he's the other candidates who are in the race, some other elected officials over the grouped around isil and then that is going to be an interesting race. And if that happens, then you could conceivably see two incumbents go down in Mississippi.
The Truth Behind the Cancellation of 'AJ After Hours'
"Turns out Mindy Herman was scared should have talked shows more than we knew because of that because of the tragedy of the Magic Johnson show. Magic was just bad on TV. It took him years to learn how to talk on TV. He wasn't ready then as a result, it all fell back on many of the blowback hit her hard. So she was petrified of talk shows, but she would never say that to our face. And I knew that things were bad because right before the talk show aired the advertising budget was cut in half. One minute on being in every magazine and newspaper in America, I'm on buses in Los Angeles by face, mildly faced with AJ after hours. I'm everywhere. The last two weeks before the show, I'm nowhere to be found. And the show was gonna run at midnight, then I went to one 30, then 2 o'clock in the morning. Who the fuck's up? The shelves from milkmen and vampires. Who's gonna watch your show with that hour, right? As my father would say, whores and milk men are up at that hour. So I was, I was doomed. It was doomed, right? And that cancellation when I finally got the word, I'm at the hotel. I've told you this story before and gave me for a minute. At the time, my assistant was my girlfriend and she was with me the whole way. And as we're getting ready for the 5th taping, Chris Rock was on that night, some good guess. She gets a phone call. Oh, it's John. John riber. Hold on. John says don't come downtown. It wouldn't mean don't come down. I'm going to tape the show. No, John says there's no shelter tonight. I go, happy to not be a shell tonight. Chris Rock's here. We're doing a show. No. So I got on the phone, John tells me, and he was crushed. It wasn't his call, but he said, we're not going to pull the show. Mindy wants to pull

What to Expect from Jan 6 Hearings
"NBC and I parted ways after four years in December. And if I ever go back on, it will be to say, I told you so I told you so I told you so because yamiche saying it's a blockbuster set of hearings. Honest to goodness Jake, I was a junior in high school between junior and senior now between sophomore and junior year. I had to take American government in the summer of 1973 and I watched the Watergate hearing. You had no idea what was going to happen. I mean, you were edge of your seat. We watched that four hours a day for summer school, and it was the best summer school class I ever had. Because, you know, yeah, it really no idea what anyone's got Alexander Butterfield comes up and says, oh, there's a tape machine in The White House. You know, nobody, John dean got up there and lied. It just was wild, it was great. I don't think what do you think the rating? Do you think they'll get a one share for this thing? I have no idea what the ratings will be. I can just tell you from my reporting you my reporting is that they have a lot of stuff that we've never seen heard or knew before.
Jan 6 Hearings Could Be Damaging to Republicans
"House Republican leadership. This is going to be a particularly difficult week for House GOP leaders, especially minority leader Kevin McCarthy. Jake, this is a great week for Kevin McCarthy because the one 6 committee is a joke. It brings Republicans together recognizing it's a joke. It overly politicizes an already desperate Democratic Party and they're not paying attention to what Americans care about. So I'm all for and when the ratings come in and I get more people on my forlorn MSNBC show than they get on Thursday night, game over, game set match Democrats blew it. Oh, I think they're going to get a lot of people. I'm just not, I'm not sure. Yeah, so I mean, that's a fine opinion to have. That's one way to look at it. I happen to disagree. I think I actually think and we're allowed to disagree on this. Of course. I actually think that this is going to be a quite damaged the argument that it's a sham is a fine argument to hold if you wanted, it's a fine argument to hold. But I actually think there's going to be a good deal of new information that comes out of this. Let me put it that way.
Can John Fetterman Overcome Health Issues to Win Pa Senate Race
"Selena good morning, how are you? Good morning, sunshine. How are you? I'm great. I need an update on John fetterman. The democratic nominee for senator will be facing Doctor Oz. I have tried to decipher what the story is on his health. What do you know? What I know is that he was, he in 2017, his doctor had told him that not only did he need to lose weight, he was a 400 pounds, but he also had a heart condition, and he needed to be taking blood thinner. You know, I mean, it really compartmentalizing it, but that's basically what they told him. What he did do is lose the weight. It was sort of dramatic, very quickly, he lost it. But he didn't ever go back to the doctor. Never took the blood center. And that is why he fell ill, it was not why he had the stroke, but that is why he fell ill and had to have the pacemaker. And so he never sort of revealed this and now that's all caught up with him. And his doctor put out a statement the other day, say, you know, saying in effect, you know, this is what happened. He almost died and we now have him in a pacemaker and taking the blood thinner and he's on the road to recovery.
Fetterman’s Heart Issues Add Wild Card to Key Pennsylvania Senate Race
"Big story in the post as well on John fetterman, the democratic nominee who will be facing Doctor Oz, John thought him is really sick, say a prayer for him, but he hasn't appeared since the election day when he had a stroke and he had a pacemaker put in and they have not been forthcoming. He's not been forthcoming his campaign staff sort of apologized yesterday over the weekend about his heart condition and his the damage done by the stroke, wish him a rapid recovery, but he really ought to step aside. It sounds like him like Connor lamb run, but he's not going to. He's going to count on, I don't know. He wasn't going to win anyway. He's off the left left.
PM Boris Johnson Faces Vote of No-Confidence
"That's right, 54 members of the Tory party. Now the way it works in Great Britain, they're not going to an election just a bunch of the members of the Conservative Party have had it with Boris, and they send letters to something called the 1922 committee or the committee on 1922 or 1922 something or other. And the senior member of the party is the chair of that. And when he counts 15% of letters demanding a vote of no confidence, they have a vote of no confidence. And so Boris got hit with that this morning. The magic number of 54 was greeted. I think some Tory members of parliament were watching Boris get booed on his way into St Paul's Cathedral for the platinum celebrations yesterday and they said, you know, we're going to lose a couple of by elections this month and we're going to get crushed if Boris is the leader. So we better dump him now. We still have two plus years left and the majority we can get ourselves a new prime minister,

So just so you know, countries like Guatemala, Honduras, now this is serious. There's malnutrition, starvation, almost impossible for us to believe, but I want to play the clip of a mother named agustina, who lost one of her kids, this is in Guatemala. This is real. Let's play this clip. Her daughter's pneumonia worsened in the storms and the floodwaters meant they couldn't get to a health center to save her. Now she and her husband are struggling to feed the four children they have left. When my husband earns some money working in the fields, we buy half a kilo of chicken for the children at least. But when we don't have money, it's just tortillas and salt because we.

What are you saying there while there's no way that we are the only intelligent and living life in the entire cosmos in the entire milky way galaxy number one and then there's something like one hundred million probably infinite number of galaxies and then every galaxy has like five hundred billion stars. I mean there's just no way where the only living i mean at one point. Dinosaurs ruled the planet. Earth reptiles that didn't speak english. That looked pretty freaking scary so there could be. You know the drako's they say is a species. They look like lizards. Or what have you and they might just come down on earth. now it'd be kind of scary They might eat people.

I think that we're we shot down spacecraft. They need to be careful about how they make the approach it today after.

A story about otis redding and the night otis redding died and it was a really romantic store that otis redding and his wife used to work on songs together but she didn't get a lot of the credit but they really valued each other and he was going on tour and he gets on a plane he gets off the plane and he says to her no matter what. Promise me you'll be good. You'll be pure and she's like you're crazy. What are you talking. She goes just promised me she goes like i promise you get on the plane. The plane crash he does. I'd heard that high school in something about it was like man. There's something like fear as good as otis redding. You're connected whatever's bigger in the world. You have the answers man..

We really wanted someone like that. Onset is what happens at tv if a director comes in and like george clooney was saying. I wanted to say georgia. Pretend we're friends. Yeah met my mom guy. G is when that director would come in. It would be aaron o'malley or trent o'donnell's job to intercept that note so the director would say like i would say let's go way faster and then transferred. Say like yeah but like zo inject go slower and then they direct goes like okay if that's what you guys want to do. And what was great. Ride the eagle. And why you know why. I like working with the same people over and over is there's a shorthand with trent. This movie specifically this was a true pandemic movie but we did not want to feel like a pandemic movie.

"Johnson, actually to just announced overnight And then that's actually a really chilling moment. Um Literally in the middle of the night, calls up the director of the Secret Service and says, I want details on every single candidate Canada right now, Right? Um so Candidates got protection. Um there's your family members. As you say. I mean, all the protection of the service has been expanded to so many people. You know, Carol, I didn't know until I read this book that Arthur Bremer, who shot George Wallace. Actually, he wanted to kill Richard Nixon first and said, and was thwarted. I mean, you know, and that's actually a good story for the secret service like you know, he, Bremmer wrote in his wallet in his, UM in his journal. That he was trying to get Nixon. But it was too tricky. Tricky. Dick is too tricky to get. He was struggling because those secret service man, he said they just made it too hard for him to get a close enough shot. So good for them. You know, Kennedy Kennedy's assassination really made them rebuild that agency from the ground up rigorous training Amazing security net, but it's been slipping for the last couple decades. I was not aware of something that you refer to in this book called the Exceptional Case Study Project. This is where an analysis was done of it. 83 people who attacked or came close to attacking prominent American public figures between 1949 and 1996. They're not all presidents, but that's an awful lot of instances of attempts. Many more than I knew, or that I think we probably remember. And the point made among others in this study is that many of them were about wanting fame. This was not about political ideologies, right? So so something we learn about the secret Service in this book, for sure is that they've really got a much tougher job than even we know, because there are so many more attempts. There's so many probably read about right so many. I mean, even before Obama President Obama was running for office, Barack Obama, who kind of set the record for the number of threats, there are thousands per month that are registered in one way or another. Maybe in a bar. Somebody on a stool little bit had too many to drink, says he's going to kill the president. To just an email or in a or more frighteningly in a white supremacist, you know, Chatter group Somebody writes what they're planning to do. Or, uh, more often, as was true in the exceptional case, study a person with some mental struggles or maybe in a crisis mental health state, uh, decides that the way for them to solve their problems is to kill a president. Carol Lin is a three time Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. Her book Zero Fail. Evan Smith is one of the co founders of the Texas Tribune's and Everybody has to be taken seriously. That's the point is, you don't know whether somebody who just sends an email is a serious threat or not. You've got to investigate everything. A number of times in this book, Carol, we hear more agents, more agents. More Asians. We need more agents. And there are a number of anecdotes that you recount in which the service itself for others go to Congress. And they got they said We need more agents. The problem is, we're understaffed. Is that necessarily? After all your reporting? Have you concluded the answer to a better secret service? Is it volume? More agents would make for a better service. In some ways, yes, but in other ways, it's too simplistic as we as you've pointed out, the mission is enormous. It's gotten larger and larger. We keep adding to the pile of what the Secret Service is responsible for. On the other hand, right? You can't not protect Kamala Harris. You cannot protect the vice president and the president's family, right. You have to protect those people. So those duties are understandable. But the mission creep is enormous. The other thing is technology. They are so like. Late 19 hundreds in terms of what they have. For tools at their disposal. Some things have been upgraded. But you know, even in 2017. When Donald Trump was just a few months into his presidency, you know they had another jumper incident where the person got over five different fences and was on the grounds for 15 minutes without being interrupted, jiggle the door on the East Wing to get in and wandered around again. No one catching him. Why? Because the cameras the fence line that Alarms the sensors so many parts of it were failing. So you know, this can't be the most protected 18 acre compound. If all those things were on the fritz well, so there's that problem. I mean, it's not simply about the number of Asians. But you also have this kind of more. I think of this kind of more workaday problem, Which is that sometimes the people who are being protected by the secret Service don't want them around. You know, I kept thinking to myself while I was reading this book, the number of people who protect these who refused to be protected or don't want to be protected. I mean, you used the case of John Kennedy, which is the most extreme case of somebody who was trying to to to up to Cut and run or to leave his details so he'd go off and have his adventures. But there are other people in this book seemed to object. I mean, President Johnson, right, who just don't really like the imposition of even though they know that the purpose of having them around is to protect them. They would just as soon not be protected. That's another point of tension. Absolutely. I'm so glad you brought it up. President Johnson. It makes me chuckle a little bit because he actually threatened and one time did, uh, shoot out the tire of a secret service agents car follow up car behind him on his farm in Texas, and, uh, He kept threatening to shoot it because he said, You know, you guys need to get back away from me. I'm hunting out here and you're messing it up. You're getting in the way. Exactly. But there was another thing about Johnson and Kennedy to in terms of them wanting these agents away separate from John F. Kennedy's, You know, Romantic days. That's right. Yeah, separate from that The other reason was It didn't think the American public wanted a lot of secret service guards around their president. They wanted to feel like they were every man who who waded into a crowd Normal Joe say hello to their voters. And if you had a bunch of security around you gave the impression you needed to be protected from your own public. And they didn't like that. And they thought taxpayers would be ticked off about it. So Linda B. Johnson, for example, constantly trying to cut the Secret Service budget. Or at least his detail because he thought voters didn't like it. But But isn't there something fundamentally ridiculous about that? We'd rather have a live president with too many people around him than a dead president. I mean, the fact is that the job of the Secret Service is to protect the president. And I mean, I I find it remarkable that the taxpayers won't like this argument holds any water. I'm a little bit more sympathetic. To the argument that well, we want to have private lives. And so whether it's John Kennedy or Michelle Obama. We want the secret service to leave us to have our private lives and not to impose in the way that they might. I mean, it has the words secret in it. But of course they do work for us so that tension that idea that the culture of the place maybe steeped in deference and discretion, But at the same time, they may also reveal the secrets of a president or of the first family is that's going to be a concern, no matter what, right and you know, there have been some presidents that have had better relationships with the Secret Service than others, Right So You know, the Bushes had an incredible relationship with their secret service details treated them like family..

"I didn't like the idea of that. I didn't like the idea of only catering to a certain dynamic because it was their preference to listen instead of to watch so Yeah i think. That's the other reason why i kind of switch things up just a bit way. Deserve video link. Yeah there is now So on youtube. If you put in the search i am brienna johnson. I think it's all one word. My stuff should come up. And then i also do behind the teas tea series on there for my tea company that i owned bahati company so if you typed in bahati he company and the search. You'd also find the videos for that that sub. Ah api interested. You brought up your own journey a lot. I wonder if you want to be more specific about that. And how this whole podcasts fits into your whole personal journey. Sure it's kind of in the public eye. Now right not to take things at surface value because i feel like in the past for generations and decades. That's kind of what we did. That's where stereotypes come from that's where our biases come from Outside of you of course being taught those things but for me People on the surface. Think that i came from something. That was more well to do than i did. They think i came from education. They think that My life to a certain point was probably just great. And i've had all kinds of support. The truth is is that i came from lower middle class that i was abused as a child almost beaten to death at the age of seven and then from there i married very very young just to try to escape the abuse and ended up in a really toxic relationship that lasted almost two decades. So the best part of my life and the best part of my years kind of i guess taken or squandered or used in a way. That wasn't quite so productive. I ended up losing my self identity and the path that i was meant to be beyond to cater to someone else's wishes and dreams and then after i realized that and got out of that relationship ended up into a worse relationship That was physically abusive. And so i kind of just went into the cycle but it's me and my family. We've seen all kinds of obstacles including being homeless. I've been homeless twice once with my my first husband and our four sons and then we lived in a makeshift cabin in the middle of nowhere and missouri for three years without running water and we just we were basically survival mode. And so there's there's all kinds of stories in there right. You've got the parenting issues. You've got the survival issues you've got. The lack of income was all during the housing crash of two thousand eight. We pretty much lost. Everything has been lost his job. We had to start all over. And then you've got the other aspects of you know extended family and community and their role in. Why didn't they step in help more. So there's all kinds of things along my path along my journey. That i've had to i guess unload the baggage a little bit at a time and separated and sorted. Burn a few articles of clothing. But that's the journey has been deep. It's been vast. And i tell people all the time you can live for five six different lifetimes and one lifetime and i feel like at this time the stage in my life. I'm forty two years old. I feel like i've already lived four of those lifetimes. And at some point. I might be courageous enough to write it all down into get into book format but for now it's suffices that it's on the podcasts..

Listening to your podcast. Really you can talk about your podcast so on your truth is about systemic issues not just the griping about what's going on today but how we have kind of influenced that and in exchange how our environments and have programmed us so we we rigor part a lot of the issues there Systemically and you know stuff from being raised in certain environments to how we perceive things as an adult so we break through a lot of those different things on the podcast And then it's kind of like anything. That's that's taboo tune other people don't want to talk about uncertain podcast. We kind of break. Those open Everything from her actually identity to self esteem. Parenting issues relationship is shoes anything. That's going on with the civil rights were all we are in it. We are in the thick of it. How do you find guests well at first What i was interested in is other people stories. you've listened to the first part of the podcasts. Most of them were about me. My journey into self discovery and reprogramming myself. But what i have come to find out is that not only. Does everyone have a story. Everyone has something that they're passionate about and all you have to do is really ask someone. What is it that you care about and right there. There's an episode for a podcast and that's really how it began but now since the words kind of gotten out i now have people that are coming to me and asking if they can be on the podcast. Which as a podcast. You can is very very thrilling. So that's that's something. I didn't think that i would experience especially not in my first year of being a podcast her.

"They would take poison to almost die because the high of coming back from almost having died was similar was a psychedelic trance. Basically or a level of ecstasy. So i was like yeah. The nausea and vape pen doesn't seem that ban so you know it but in the real world like and you don't even get the nausea for you know for the for the dm for per diem. T. but it takes people you know it's not so starting to creep up a little bit more but it's still nothing compared to sell seven lsd. It's not like someone. Just you know the guy that someone buys their we'd from he also happens to have some of this. Would you like some all sure. Shirl try it and then you just swallow it like right. That's you know this is something people need to seek out. They usually need to find a friend. Who's done it to show them how to do it. And again it sounds like it might be getting easier get not recommending anything but like with these vape pens but again you may not get the breakthrough dose like people you know if they're gonna do it. Have a breakthrough dose. They probably need to have the glass. You know the glass one of these kind of glass pipe methods. you know. they need to go somewhere like i. I know one guy that that He was like it was such a trip going to the you know. He bought one of the pezo's the meth pipes. You know to to smoke with and he just felt like so weird going to wear as little shops in new york city and he wanted to tell the guy. Like i believe me. I'm not smoking math but it's like visiting elves. I'm not doing anything weird. It's way more respectable something like that. So it's like it takes that nerd element of someone to either. No a nerd mortis out or if it if it were a pill maybe you would have if it were pill. You'd you'd be seeing more news stories about right. And i think that's lsd took off in in the late sixties. Like that because it was something you just put in your was even easier than a pill you could put into a like whatever sugar cube blotter paper. You could have you know a dropper just dropping it off on your tongue you know. It's like any of these methods and such as like really easy for people just in the real world. That's that's a real effect you know. I think it's the simply and then the three in there are. They are people a bunch of people. I've talked to that. Said they took one inhalation and it was either too hot or they didn't like the taste and they weren't able to almost like like William james you're the founder of american psychology was at at at the core of our modern societies interest psychedelics and in altered states and miskel experience. He's he tried peyote and he couldn't get enough of it to like. He vomited the first time. She didn't have an effect and he said he's he didn't do it again. He says he's going to take it on he's really into nitrous oxide. He found that fascinating but he was like it was just hard to get the peyote in for him. You know. there's some people even if they're fascinated they're kind of held back by the technology. What about people. i know. Ramdas mentioned injecting it. Which is you can inject. Emt right and in fact one time ramdas got injected in the but by by his colleagues at mill when they were holed up at millbrook and he was just he was sick. He had the flu or something and they snuck up to the bed. Jabbed him the but with an. Im intramuscular injection of mt. Right this is in at its in being around us. No no no. It's in i think Not a book by him but either in storming heaven or in The book by By lee and martin lee and lien shlaim Acid dreams One of those two books houses trail over similar content. I i can't. I can't call it before you answer. I'm like if i was just laying there. And he liked that sorta stuff so like was the. It's like when the beatles took lsd. They were dosed And they and. They explained that they didn't want them to get paranoid. So of ramdas just was sort of laying there pretty calm and just fluey. He wouldn't have had any time to get scared about it and maybe it could have been a good experience. Well so here. I don't recall. Like i might be getting this better. Recall that he wasn't happy about. Yeah i wouldn't get a little weird at millbrook. And and i think it was in storming heaven as it continued till the story but don't be verified but but it's also an. Im injection which means the m. t. effects are going to start creeping over up after a few minutes still very quick compared to like swallowing mushrooms. Lsd but nothing compared to like. Hey like the three big hits people are already tripping under the first and second hit on. Dm t. when they're inhaling and inhaling. Something's going to be very similar to an ivy injection intravenous injection so an intramuscular injection seeps into the system a little slower so he probably had a few minutes because he's going to feel the but jab. Oh yeah you know. he's fair you like what the hell dudes What did you just inject me. Where i would be and from what i know about mostly reading about him. I think that would really pissed them off. I mean anybody. I can't think of anybody. Even someone like shane. Who loves that would want someone else to shoot it into you. That sounds horrible right. Just sort of a violation of it is via she. It is which people have talked about this and the term has been used psychological rate the whole idea of like sarah typically dosing people. It's really not know in their stories of people doing it to folks at burning man and wanted to. It's not cool at. Yeah yeah all to put it mildly. The weird ramdas. Mt story that i heard. I can't remember where he sat at But he said that he would inject it. Inner muscular -ly bef- in the green room of talk shows where he was about to do an appearance so he would just. That's how cavalier and fearless. He was because he's like look. If i'm going to go and talk about spirit. I want to give these people. The best ramdas there is. Which is the guy who was just there That would be over by the time he did. It would be over like he. He was like an hour or so before the show. It wasn't like close. that means me wonder mat. I don't want you have final. Cut over this episode. You can edit out anything you want. But i'm not asking if you've done things. I did this morning right before the interview. Oh my god you took a shot of d. That would be a larry and you're just pretending to be impressed that us it. So here's terence mckenna. he's what he calls himself a rationalist and a doubter. He had that great talk where he's like it was thomas who got to touch the side of christ. It was his doubt that got him higher and closer to the mind body of god than anybody so he puts a high premium on doubt. And he doesn't believe in belief he doesn't bring beliefs into these spaces and then he says he did d. m. t. and he was like any hyper materialist belief system that this is all that's going on. He uses the word. I think. The beautiful word eviscerated he goes. It's irrevocably serrated doing this. And he said that which is one of the reasons why. I guess i'm being selfish. I'm like i. It'll be good for my my operating system it'll it'll in reinforce things that i already enjoy. So i'll concede that selfishness right there but he he he said as much as he resisted it. He came to the conclusion that he was talking to disembodied..

"Like every you know like a one point every year like about new plants that contained. Emt like there's i think right someone. Oh gosh was this. Might have been in jonathan. I were or perhaps sasha wiggins one of them wrote in a book it would be easier this point to list the plants that don't contain being t contained. Emt who knows so. His question is why why. How do you if i tell you. Open this trap door and you will go into hyperspace and alien intelligences will download information to you. They will reveal. Shane said forty thousand past. Lives sent through you simultaneously. You can If you'd like to know the meaning of life will happily tell it to you whether or not you can retain it and bring shane a trip where he said reality is these two impossible mathematical equations brought together and every time there's a remainder a universes born to work out the remainder and like that's kind of as close as we get that fund lava lamp. Feeling going wow. That feels right. It feels like it's resolving itself like towards some sort of omega point like it's it's answering itself so that feels kinda right Why okay. So what i'm saying if there was a in my floor and i took you and you opened it and you had that experience and then we gave it to five hundred other people and when they opened the door in the floor they don't have the same experience but they have a similar experience. It's going to be really intense. It's going to be really intense. I had a friend get more people open that door. Or why are they not at least curious about opening that door. Why is red bull a phenomenon and not a again. I'm not recommending. Anyone do it but it is mckenna. Says that like our brains know what to do. With the mta it's similar to serotonin it's not like he says you'll probably know this because if you smoke something in three days later you wake up in a hot bath and you have an answer. The phone call in three days. Don't take that drug because your body didn't know what to do with it. Took you out of the game. Dmc goes through you and eight to twelve minutes and he says this is evidence that we know how to metabolize it it goes. Oh here's this let's do it and then we'll be done with it and then afterwards you're so sober. I mean ten minutes after you're sober. He's as you could schedule meetings. You couldn't you again. My friend who are twenty minutes afterwards. It's like completely done. my friend did it. And he had never done anything hard like that. He said he witnessed the birth of his children again. Because it asked him what would you like to do. And he said i'd like to see the birth of my child again and he went and watched it again and he was like i was there i watched it again and then he said ten minutes later i could have driven home. It was insane so if if it were a door in the floor like the biggest ball of yarn in idaho. I would have a line round the block. Meaning it's not going to damage is not going to hurt you. You're not gonna get cancer. It's not gonna kill you. It might be overwhelming. And it's kind of scary telling you that i'm sort of scared of doing it. In the way that i'm scared of jumping into the ocean if it's choppy i mean i have a reverence for it but if it were a physical door but it happens to be three. Inhales of of a clamp basically of a reduction of a plant right where the four inch headlines where their religions. Where i know. There's a great read it. And there's this podcast and there's joe rogan and there's alex gray and there's brian yeah. There's a pretty nice psychedelic renaissance going on but what is blocking the headline. It's gosh. I have a few ideas and some from from. You know just like terence mckenna. You know the the astonishing. I describe this and they're just going to be tear like if they really take you seriously. They're going be terrified for good reason. Why can it's it may be the most intense experience of your life and even for someone who's taken a big syke like in lsd trip. You can tell that person this might be the most intense experience of your life by far even above those things. Like that's enough to scare a lot of people including people take you seriously for a whole other group of people Everything you just described. Pete they might just like. You're just insane like you've been locked into luge in like what the fuck like you're like you're talking about holes in the floor and other reality like why would i wanna get your basically describing going crazy. Would you like to go crazy and believe in this weird stuff that i believe in. Would you like to believe in elves and other dimensions or would you like to be a normal person. There's a lot of people would say. Lb normal person. I'll take the no l you know operating system for my brain. Thank you very much. Yeah so and and for other people who are neither too terrified to do it nor are they afraid of the operating system with with the With the l. upgrades there's gonna be a whole other group of people that It's it's hard to inhale it like it's this whole thing of like s- the three big hits and like i said there's people that are obsessed on like how to get the standards now d- emt vape pens. So that's another. Although from what. I'm told it's hard to get a breakthrough dose from the vape pins wrong although people can get more teaser doses from it but for the full breakthrough. It's simply a hard thing. So there's a technological. I mean terence mckenna. I call this the price of entry. I remember he said that. In referenced at morning glory seeds which have a very mushroom like effect and in the light but but they give you more nausea much. Like peyote or something. But he is like. It's the price of admission folk. What are you afraid of a little tummy ache if you consider that. What shamanistic cultures. What does he call it endurance shamanism or or like pain shamanism. So the people that used to put hooks in their chests and hang for three days they were doing that to go into trance states and i was like comparatively of vape pen. Sounds pretty good. You know what i mean. Right they would take poison to almost die because the high of coming back from almost having died was similar was a psychedelic trance. Basically.

"I can feel myself being forgotten basically and i was like i said i don't normally talk to people i was like. You don't know this too shall pass 'cause mechanic calls that the great message of psychedelics. He's like this too shall pass. That's what it screaming. It's all a bunch of not in the. He actually has a very hopeful. And i would save hyper spiritual understanding of the cosmos working itself out to the omega point which christians have alpha omega. We have the big bang. We have the big crunch meaning. There's some unknown a tractor. That's pulling all of reality towards itself To higher and higher states of he would say novelty or complexity or perfection or understanding or consciousness. That's the same thing totally would say. You know what i mean and taryn saying look. I didn't want to believe this. But that's that's what i've been. That's what i've seen like. I didn't believe it. Until i saw it and i kind of lost my train of thought but that i'm glad i got to say that the whole idea like oh that this too shall pass no was in control but not in a bad way like we might all just be a bunch of skeletons having a cocktail party but don't lose hope you're the fact that being is. Is this great comfort. That means that existence is yearning for itself. There's an appetite to be and to explore into evolve and progress and we see it in nature and we see it in ourselves and we see higher and higher degrees of connectivity with human being so it keeps moving moving moving moving to further and further still and more and more horrible ways it's going it's complex defying in the other direction. But like you don't have to just a skeleton so who fucking cares you. This is just my little part of the great mystery. And i don't have to to attach to it but also can value it. It's a paradox. it's passing and it's the most precious thing in the world culinary thing going on yeah and human beings are in this solar system. We're the only ones like this. We are the height of novelty. We are the height of complexity. We are inventing the next a the next technology all of this new stuff. The psychedelic research. We are the cutting edge of evolution so like people don't recognize you from your tv show from thirty years ago. Wake up. i said to him. I said you gotta take some ellis t and i don't normally say that to people but i think it will tell you in my language and spiritual language that your as saint print. Saint bonaventure maybe said saint augustine. I am who. I am in god. Nothing more nothing less two d religious. It i am who i am in consciousness in the mystery in infinity. Nothing more nothing less. I am who. I am even less religious in the big picture. Nothing more nothing less. I'm not a separate thing. I am acog. I'm a cell in the great body. That is the cosmos you have a ticket to the big show and me going like. Geez that comedy set. They didn't laugh that hard you. You're already it right. Am i preaching up your alley or is this just like that. I mean you had a really great way of expressing this idea like like just its existence itself is this bursting forth of nothing for no reason. The it's the greatest miracle the only miracle that's ever happened. Reality itself is year a keeps bursting forth who would've predicted even from the big bang and from the initial stars. Like you know oh and brains and you know like octopus. It's not gonna stop like and you're part of that you are that this this completely unknown like it is the bursting and actually actually. It was that same philosopher that years ago was participants. And there's i think he said there's a french word for this this bursting forth into the macro. I don't know what the word is unafraid of a bursting forth and he said it had something to do with the the with sacks like the ejaculation. I said that. I've said or gods come shot or were the mysteries come up. Meaning i know that's grotesque. It's one of the reasons. I don't say it on stage anymore. Because it gets lost in the vulgarity. But it's true. It's this proposing infinite expansion at desires itself. Who knows what's gonna come at like like a person might come out of this person might create within a few generations thousands of other people person might invent millions of people. Right person might be the most important even if they don't save millions of people that person might be the most important person for another person on the planet met in their life. All of that is coming from someone shooting their their wad long. Don't even love stand that just things that's right that's right and that just like reality like the the miracle in the mystery like continuing.

"They're just really have a history of being reinforced for like playing the skeptic. No matter what to the it's even credible like and i've seen some of that with our psychedelic work in. Its come along and again. There's always great. You know great exceptions. But it's almost like the the the the psychiatrists are within the within the field of madison. So those are physicians. Md's and day get shit on for being like not real doctors within the physicians soft audience. So they yeah. Soft within madison air quotes. Get as a psychologist. Which is not a physician not medicine. But it's it's an actual science of the mind or behavior and but but psychiatrists will on psychologists for being too soft because it. That's the it's rolling downhill. Of course you need to pass the buck summer. Yeah right so they put like no. We're not weirdoes psychology. You see this with every I'm from boston. So you have the irish and they're being oppressed and then another minority comes in and then you'd think the irish would be sympathetic to them as an no. They can't wait for another group to fill in the void and go great. Now we'll put you down and we'll lift ourselves up which is so fucked if you're you just being oppressed you'd think you'd be the least likely to oppress but the way dude. I was the heaviest kid my eighth grade class and then in in seventh grade and eighth grade a slightly not even heavier. He was just slightly soft boy came in. I couldn't wait to make fun of him. Because that's all everyone had done to me. So i am also like this. I am also an idiot. It's it's an idiot eric. Pain transfer that. You're just like now. I can be the alpha. The kid was skinnier than i was. It made no sense. It also just made no sense in the sense of compassion or any of the higher human virtues but i was in seventh grade. It's okay yeah we and many of us are still doing. And i think we've probably all do it to a degree you know. But we're all apes like we're all just apes social apes that are social apps that are looking for the pecking order. And you're like oh thank god. There's again this isn't me speaking but someone might be like. I think there's a woman. Here i can be superior to this woman like a woman or there's a short short man short ball demand. Thank god now. I know where i am a fucking apes were apes and we need to. I mean we're back to mckenna stoned ape the leap belief that we've made because of psychedelics has been i mean i i can't say because of psychedelics but it seems like something has helped us along. Let's put it. This way. When i take psychedelics that helps me become aware to these unconscious programs. That seem to be running like the one. We're talking about like this. Need to scapegoat. This need to produce a false hierarchy to like bolster. My self awareness of ego came from study first and foremost but it was certainly reinforced from silla. Simon is that. Yeah talk about a lot of people say this and i think there is some truth. So here's the interesting thing to me. really figuring out this area like wh one or trying to figure out. This area like to psychedelics inherently have a positive effect and that might just be so such a gross way of asking the question that it's you know that's the problem maybe it's meaningless but you know we know that psychedelics do calls they can calls delusions. They can push some people over the edge and not just people. We kind of know a little strongly. That like yeah. People dealing with schizophrenia. They could be made worse than unstable. Made these stabilized and things like but even people with like more. The science hasn't caught up with this. I've known plenty of people that like you. Just impressions like the taken too many psychedelics. And it's not just that they're into weird shit because that's that's kind of fine at one level but you get some narcissists that are really into psychedelics and taking a lot of psychedelics and your senses. It's not coincidence that it's probably made things worse so many people that claim that it's been that it's it's paid them. It's made them less self-focused and i think there's a danger and and there was an too much in the sixties with enlighten manton. Focus on this because like who's ever been enlightened as state that you get to and you're like it's just all about to me moment to moment the better you can be at this moment. The better th the more generous more kind of more kind of aware would enlighten. Where else would enlightenment be. It's it's just a concept outside of the moment so you're you're there is no future you know it's like this. Is this whole idea like we attaining sort of a like a position. Heaven that we stick onto. And like. I don't know i think that's a danger there. But you know that's a digression. A lot of people have claimed that have really helped them be better human beings. And i've done research. I've done survey work. Done a lot of work in the lab where we see under like really careful conditions where we shape things in the right way and provide the support and we screen people out that things might go haywire It it tends to really really positive for people and we not surveys plenty of people. Most people taking seconds just for fun or for exploration. But there's lots of people out there that said. Yeah they took lsd for fun and they realize like why the hell am i. Smoking cigarettes and the quit smoking for the rest of their lives like twenty years ago because they were just on acid for fun like therapeutic breakthrough. While i told you i stopped drinking for three months without trying. I know it's only three months. But i never made a decision i just was like. Oh what am i doing. I stopped in that. That's completely consistent with the type of reports that we get and we we've gotten for it's like this for all sorts of drugs and there's other stories of just everything A from you know. Better family relationships to You know people being better. You know parents to Oh gosh and then i. I've helped with some research that suggests that that people that have used psychedelics in their lifetime. If they're on parole they're less likely to engage in recidivism in other words to engage in subsequent crime and getting go back to jail Something yeah i remember and recipient i get it. I know that's a tough one simple but if you can say it you should say it. That's a good word is recidivism. Recidivism recidivism recidivism recidivism Yes but i want to circle back to what you just said because again do you know shame us know he's incredible. He's he's a real he's done. The mta one hundred times like Not that that alone is like worthy of metal. But like he's very he's great reporter on it like he's giving and he's i think he might be like you and that he says he goes and he has huge arguments with it. Meaning he doesn't go in passive he goes in and something says i'm god and he goes. No you're not you're just something in my mind and the things get upset like they and they try to. Tantalize him with impossible. Like here's here's fifty thousand lives like human lives like i'm showing them to you simultaneously. And then he goes. You always do this. I ask you a direct question and you just try to amaze me. But i'm telling you that you're not god like he's like indiana jones. I don't know who what he's like..

"It went by so fast. I hope you enjoy it as much as i did. Enjoy dr matthew. Johnson gets into it. Lick it you look you. I've only ever seen you in a little icon. And i'm loving this looking you. What's your first. And i'll ask you first. What your first impression is. Because i i've been getting a common one recently when people see me in person is that right after they've seen my profile. Pick the one. Well you're skinnier. You look younger and skinnier but like lasts I hope this doesn't bother you. Look less academic like your photo is very like author photo and this guy. I'm like let's get some pineapple on the beach. There's feeling to you that. I'm really relieved to see because i was like. Oh i hope he's okay. Not just being in the academic vein this chat or whatever you wanna do. But why am a psychedelic academic. Yeah there you go academic well. That's right people have been telling me is like the the photo i've been using basically as my professional photo for probably too long now is my beard is like that long was growing for like three years and chopped it up sometime into the pandemic when things were look like they were really serious like and i was taking the facemask guidelines member of the cdc put out this thing like on the these facial styles for men are okay and these ones aren't though. Yeah they did this. Maybe kind of like you know. I'm in the hospital university setting so it might be bigger kind of in my world but it was later didn't want really long z. Top beards basically basically. Yeah that was one of the ones that they didn't want anything that wouldn't allow like seat mitchell longer. Now basically this would allow mass to go around and z. z. Top one goes out. Would not but they did allow. I looked over and it's pretty comprehensive in like they have like zappa on it unlike. Franks me that guy must have been like testosterone because he grew hair because there's pluses and minuses grew hair out of his ears but one of the things like every inch of his face. The zappa is the handlebar moustache. Like like the whole the hulk stor. Yeah lemme kill mr for motorhead mustache but with a not a soul patch like a like a a soul garden card in the whole thing is like i just couldn't do it but i know i know what you mean. It's ultimate testosterone and. It's funny that's where i went Right to our beard more testosterone posturing. Because i know they're showing that you grow a facial hair you know like i always think of like a jason state. Them high testosterone leads to male pattern baldness and. He's kind of better ball like he's more manly with chest. Hair and blah. Bruce willis same sort of thing and then it was like it's facial hair and i know you're going to be able to talk about this. I used to have a joke about how drinking alcohol is proof as a mammal. You can just poison and stay upright like that's why men don't drink pinochle ladas on dates. Traditionally they drink whisky sissy. I don't need exactly donald. And he is in dad just guerrilla behavior. That's like that's like bonobo behaviour. You're you're you're like real and testosterone. Shame told me that. Shane months is poison. So the more so is a beard then look germs and shit can land on my cova catcher. And i'm fine like is it is it to levels of posturing having beard well. I'm somewhat masculine. I'm probably not maxed out because that comes with a lot of bad stuff so that probably off the monster beard during the pandemic was probably evidence of of not being at the the absolute extreme people have like what made me bring up is like people have gotten almost like They want like a rebate or something. Because they wanted me. they've liked. They broke me into something. And because of the psychedelic work. And i go send me your profile pic and everything and then like we wanted the beard. We wanted that kind of william james old style scholar. You know almost smoking a tobacco pipe. You know like a dude lacombe to in his not funny there so i. I'm assuming you are at least aware of terence mckenna. I don't know you like terrance. Oh yeah i'm a huge terence mckenna fan. I'm a huey. Listen to read. Every book and probably listen to more than than i should have. Yeah probably everything. I could get my hands on terms of his audience which is where he really as you know. Books are interesting and good but like listening to those seminars. Yeah i mean the order the irish bard speaker. That's where he yeah dined and somebody who'd showbiz like he doesn't project any doesn't even seem that interested in getting laughs or anything he's just sort of. He's just sort of talking the way a river. Babbel's i i'm not saying he's babbling. I'm saying like the way a creek is just sort of naturally producing the sort of effortless sound. He does that where he just keeps going. And going and going. And it's just more fascinating more fascinating so we have that in common. I'm listening to him and this goes back to your beard. He's like we are clothed in the aku trauma of our drugs right so mile where he says where where you see that the mushroom so like we we look like he sort of makes us interesting point where he goes you go to ireland and you can see that alcohol is the is the drug traditionally speaking of like you see it in the clothing you see it in the faces and the hair and then he you know that that's debatable. I suppose but like it's easier when he's making fun of us he goes you come to america and you can see in our clothing in our hair in our faces that we are a sugar meat. An alcohol society like the sugar the meat and the alcohol dresses us like it makes it makes us choose our clothes and our haircuts and all of this stuff. So when you have a guy like you who spelunky into the multi-diverse into hyperspace and studying it. don't we expect them that dimension to have an impact on you shane. Moss grew a huge wizard beer during the pandemic. And i was talking to him. Recently and i was like Maybe people on instagram. Tell you to shave the beard. And he's like no people. Tell me don't shave the beard. That'd be really mad. And i think it's because picture stone her picture of mushroom header a dead head. They look different and i. I'm talking a lot but isn't there something to be said about..
