Michael Pollan: This Is Your Mind on Plants

The Joe Rogan Experience

Overview

In Western cultures, psychoactive substances have often been derided as antisocial and dangerous. In their war on drugs, presidents Nixon and Reagan aggressively penalized drug users. In 2021, we are finally developing a more mature approach to consciousness-altering drugs, aided by science.

Joe Rogan is a comedian, UFC presenter, and host of the world's most popular podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience. Michael Pollan is a journalist, author, and academic who has written several books on the effects of food and drink on the human mind, including This Is Your Mind on Plants.

In this July 2021 episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, Pollan and Rogan discuss the fascinating study of psychoactive plants and their complex history and relationship with humanity. Topics covered include our changing attitudes to drugs, indigenous peoples' use of psychoactive plants, plants' role in human evolution and culture, and plant intelligence.

"Every culture on Earth, with one notable exception, has one plant or fungus that they use regularly, and often ceremonially, to change consciousness."
