Episode details

Today’s episode is a special. Years ago, I hosted an open-mic storytelling tour that traveled around the country that we called ‘The Blue Dot Tour’. Anyone was welcome to share their stories involving psychoactive experiences – and things got real. One of the best stops was in Chicago, where I met last week’s guest, Aaron Paul Orsini.  

 I’ve never seen anything quite like these events where psychonauts shared their tales of transformation, self-discovery, healing, and spectacle. I think you’ll find this episode as fascinating as I did. Originally broadcast on the Psychedelic Salon, you can hear all the stops from the tour there. 

(And if you’re down for an Easter Egg Hunt, I told a story at one of the stops. Let me know if you find it...)
