Worth The Fight Podcast

Apr 14, 2020

In the episode, I mostly free-stream the pros and cons of microdosing psychedelic medicines. A phenomenon that has gone mainstream with supposedly up to a third of C-level Silicon Valley executives microdosing psychedelics to enhance creativity to get a leg up on their competition. I share most of my personal experiences and a boatload of relevant resources. None of this is medical advice, just a compilation of a lot of possibly pertinent educational material/information and supercharged show notes.
