Show Notes Chapter Markers

Albert Garcia-Romeu does research on psychedelics at Johns Hopkins University. In this first part of our discussion I asked Al why older adults should be interested in psychedelic research. How could psychedelics help us to enjoy a more successful longevity?  We also delve into the subjective experience of a psychedelic trip. What do people taking psychedelics in a clinical setting report feeling, and how what kind of benefits does the trip provide?
