Nick Hornby with Ayelet Waldman: Just Like You

Play
Read more

Nick Hornby’s latest novel Just Like You updates the meet-cute genre for a modern love story: Lucy, a 41 year old almost-divorcée, stands in line at a butcher shop watching her neighbor flirt with a much younger man behind the counter. It’s not exactly the stuff of dreams, but Lucy isn’t looking for romance (at least not yet). Join Hornby (High Fidelity) and Ayelet Waldman (The Mommy-Track Mysteries) for a chat about what it means for authors and characters to throw out the old scripts in order to try something new.

Learn about how microdosing made a mega difference in Waldman’s mood, marriage, and life.

Struggling to heal the mind has become commonplace in today’s society. As people live fast-paced lives surrounded by technology and social media, the rise of mental illness has become an increasingly prevalent problem. With depression, anxiety, and mood swings, people often seek medical help to ease their symptoms and balance their brains. Unfortunately, medical attention doesn’t always work and patients like Ayelet Waldman turn to drastic measures to help feel like themselves again. A Really Good Day is the true story of Waldman’s struggle with mood storms which led her to a drastic, yet forbidden remedy: microdoses of LSD. While Waldman suffered, her husband and children suffered with her, she became desperate for help. So when a small vial arrives in her mailbox, she places two drops on her tongue in hopes that she and her family will one day be okay again. Over the course of a month, Waldman charted her experience of daily microdosing. She also pored over the history and mythology of LSD, the cutting-edge research surrounding the drug, and the byzantine policies that control it. Ultimately, Waldman documented her experience in her search for a really good day. As you read, you’ll learn what microdosing is, how LSD has helped popular billionaires like Steve Jobs, and how the greatest risk of microdosing LSD is simply getting arrested.

This time I talk to Ayelet Waldman who talks refreshingly open about her microdosing experience with LSD and becoming a modern empath through the experience: she just founded FeedER to support health workers with food during the Covid19-Crisis. Ayelet is a very successful Israeli-American novelist and essayist, has written many novels, TV Shows like “Unbelievable” on Netflix. Her book “A Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life” is a fascinating diary about that little blue bottle in Ayelets fridge: LSD in a microdose.

Ayelet Waldman: Microdose, Maybe?

Play

The turning point came for Ayelet Waldman when she found herself frozen before her medicine cabinet, wondering "what's going to kill me fastest?" She knew it was time to try a new tactic to improve her mental health.

In this episode, hear this bestselling nonfiction author (who also happens to be a mother, a wife, and a novelist) describe her experience with microdosing LSD and how it improved her writing and her marriage, and maybe even saved her life. Waldman will bring you deep into the research around psychedelics and offer insight into why they're so controversial—particularly odd when we don't know a whole lot more about the doctor-prescribed medications commonly used to treat depression.

Ayelet Waldman: Exploring Microdosing

Play
Read more
Ayelet Waldman is a former federal public defender, current adjunct professor at UC Berkeley Law School, and a bestselling author. Her books include Love and Treasure, Daughter's Keeper, and A Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life. In this episode of Insights at the Edge, Tami Simon speaks with Ayelet about the practice of microdosing with small quantities of psychedelic drugs in order to treat mental health conditions. Ayelet shares her own story of microdosing with LSD and how it helped her climb out of a pit of suicidal depression. Tami and Ayelet discuss the legal limitations on microdosing, the difficulty of researching the effects of psychedelics, and the possible future of the war on drugs. Finally, they talk about the many clinical applications of MDMA, including a surprising application for couples therapy. (59 minutes)

Tami's Takeaway: Research! Research! Research! If we are to understand how to effectively microdose with LSD and other psychoactive substances, we need open minds and quality research to guide our way. Let's move beyond any preformed biases we might have (pro or con) and pursue research that will give us the data, proper protocols, and safeguards we need.
