Ep101 - Madison Margolin: Enlightened Lockdown! Cultivating Magic Mushrooms At Home
Brave New Weed
A conversation with Madison Margolin, editor of DoubleBlind, the magazine that's charting the psychedelic renaissance (and a special guest appearance by Timothy Leary's lawyer).It’s the second winter of our pandemic discontent. We’re bored, weary of isolation, itchy to travel, but confined at home. A growing number of restless adventurers are adapting by traveling inward. Their vehicle of choice? Psilocybe cubensis, AKA psilocybin, AKA magic mushrooms. Our guide on this episode's journey, Madison Margolin, is the editor and co-founder of DoubleBlind, the bi-annual print magazine that’s charting the psychedelic renaissance.Just like cannabis, psychedelics, squashed and maligned by 60 years of prohibition, are at the center of this resurgence. Psilocybin has been decriminalized in cities including Denver, CO, Oakland and Santa Cruz, CA, Washington DC, and Somerville, MA. The entire state of Oregon has decriminalized and legalized it for therapeutic use. Change is afoot and DoubleBlind is charting it.The magazine blends exuberant graphics and joyful mix of the informative, fun and at times, fantastic, journalism, which is how it should be. In it, you’ll find:profiles of some boldface names such as Hamilton Morris, the host of the great VICE TV series, Hamilton’s PharmacopeiaAn investigation into the underground psychedelic scene in New York’s ultra conservative Hassidic communitySome hilarious (and maybe true?) revisionist histories as viewed through a psychedelic lens. To wit: Moses and the Burning Bush. Some psychonauts believe that the bush, in fact, was acacia, the bark of which contains the psychedelic alkaloid 5-MeO-DMT and that it convinced Moses that he was speaking to God. And classes on the perfect pandemic pastime, growing your own mushies at home, .
