Worth The Fight Podcast

Aug 25, 2021

Pioneering DMT psychedelic researcher Dr. Rick Strassman shares his game-changing work and contrarian outlook and perspectives. We talk about the supreme value in set & setting and how the “expectancy effect” plays a much larger role in the outcomes we receive from peak psychedelic experiences. Dr. Strassman is an unsung hero in this movement who doesn’t get proper due for being a first mover in the early 1990s initiating brave and controversial research around the effects of intravenous DMT.
