Hør afsnittet

In this episode you will meet, professor of psychiatry and psychotherapy at Hannover Medical school, Torsten Passie. Passie is a longstanding contributor to the psychedelic field. He has published numerous articles and books on psychedelics, such as “The Science of Microdosing Psychedelics”, “Healing with Entactogens”, and “The Pharmacology of LSD”. As mentioned in the podcast, Passie is sometimes referred to as an ‘encyclopedia’ within the psychedelic milieu. He has done remarkable work in recording and re-actualizing all the research that was conducted in what is called the first wave of psychedelic research between late 1940s and early 1970s. In the podcast we talk with Passie about the key findings from this period and about what lessons the current second wave of psychedelic research ought to acquire from previous research efforts.

We hope you will enjoy the conversation!
