As I already announced in my last post of October 6, 2019, the Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR) broadcasted yesterday, on October 9, 1919, at 10:10 pm a program on the topic of psychedelics, in which I made a few statements (from an original 45 minute interview).
Surprisingly, the broadcast (entitled “Die Rückkehr der Hippie-Droge LSD”) focussed heavily on the so-called “microdosing” (of LSD) and on “self-optimization”, which is being used mainly in Silicon Valley. The considerable therapeutic potential of psychedelics, in particular of psilocybin, was discussed only in the last 15 minutes of the broadcast. Although one would have liked to see a little more on these aspects and on the question of the mechanisms of action of psychedelics, the contribution is nevertheless worth seeing. It can be viewed in the WDR-Mediathek – here – until October 8, 2020.
