About this Episode

For this bonus interview, we’re joined by Canadian lawyer turned historian and journalist, Ross Crockford. Ross was the editor of Monday Magazine, an alternative weekly paper in Victoria, BC and has over two decades of experience researching Canada’s past, present, and future with psychedelics. It was during his work as an editor that he discovered the work done by Dr. Abram Hoffer; he actually went on to interview Hoffer himself as well as several of his patients, along with many other early psychedelic pioneers.

We’ll be back on July 19th, with an episode featuring Canadian Historian, Dr. Erika Dyck. Erika joins us to discuss her research on Canada’s history with psychedelics, the history of women and psychedelics, and some of the exciting projects she is collaborating on with individuals from around the world, alongside the Chacruna Institute for Psychedelic Plant Medicines.

This episode was produced and edited by Brendon Campbell. Original music and audio engineering by Andrew Illmann.
