Description

Ever wonder what it's like to run a 50k race on LSD? We sat down with Sarah Siskind, a professional comedian and psychedelic advocate, who shares her extraordinary experiences of doing just that. Not once, but twice! Combining a hearty dose of humor and genuine human insight, Sarah walks us through the unique challenges of these experiences, all while shedding light on the stigma surrounding psychedelics.

Our conversation takes us beyond just running under the influence of LSD. Together, we explore the broader sphere of psychedelics and their potential benefits for mental health. From treating conditions such as PTSD, anxiety, and depression, to enhancing perception and connection during physical activities, we examine the fascinating impact of psychedelics. However, we also stress the importance of context, safety, and responsible use. It's about understanding and respecting these substances, not advocating reckless behavior.

In our chat, we touch on the complex issue of drug use in the US, discussing organizations like Dance Safe and the Zendo Project that offer drug testing and peer support. We even entertain the idea of an "acid division" in races! While we add a dash of humor throughout our conversation, we never lose sight of the very human aspect of our discussion. Sarah opens up about her personal battles with depression and the role psychedelics played in her journey to find joy. Join us for a fascinating, informative, and thought-provoking discussion that might just change the way you view psychedelics.
