Show Notes and Links:
Casey William Hardison is an entheogenic activist and psychedelic chemist who most famously known for getting busted making LSD In the U.K. and defending himself in court, by acting as his own lawyer during his trial.
Instead of arguing he did not commit the acts, he argued that–as long as he harmed no one–he had the human right to engage in his chosen entheogenic praxis. Casey stood for cognitive liberty and freedom of thought and continues to do so to this day.
During his trial, Casey challenged the drug laws as a discriminatory affront to free thought, therapeutic choice and free religion. The trial judge rejected these arguments and an eight-week trial ensued after which Casey was convicted on March 18, 2005 on 6 of 8 counts and sentenced to 20 years imprisonment on April 22, 2005.
Aside from being known for being kidnapped by men with guns for partaking in a peaceful loving activity, Casey has attended entheogen-related conferences, wrote articles for the MAPS Bulletin, The Entheogen Review, and contributed to Erowid.
Casey is a freedom fighter of the highest order of love and light. Extensive show notes and links are below.

FYI – I kind of went off the rails and ranted in anger about Sessions, Trump and the war on drugs in the begining of this episode for a about 20 minutes. You can skip ahead if you want to get to the interview.
Thank you! #M I N D R I G H T S

Episode #36: Robbie Martin: A Very Heavy Agenda | Exposing The Ideologues, Fear Mongers & War Profiteers Behind The American Empire
This week’s guest drops some serious truth bombs. You’re going to love this episode.
Robbie Martin is exactly the kind of person I like. He’s filmmaker, musician, and co-host of Media Roots Radio with his sister, Abby Martin. Most importantly Robbie is able to see through bullshit. He’s able to stay consistent with his views and passionate about what is morally right and wrong with our world today.
We had a great conversation, mostly about subjects he explores in his astonishingly powerful 3 part documentary series ‘A Very Heavy Agenda’
The Mind blowing trilogy is titled as follows:
Part 1: A Catalyzing event Part 2: How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the New Neocons Part 3: Maintaining the World Order
We talk about The American Empire that we live in. 9/11 and How the war on terror got started, and how our foreign policy has transformed to fit the demands of fighting an idea across the globe. We look at some of the events and key players that have been operating behind the scenes, either in think tanks or writing op-ed pieces, but nonetheless influencing American foreign policy, no matter who sits in the white house. The president changes but the war party stays in power. It’s the Neo-cons.
Who are they? what do they want? how long have they been in power for? How have they managed to rebrand themselves and remain in power through multiple presidents? and what’s next on their agenda?
Its seems like there’s always Bi-partisan support for war. There’s always more money and support for foreign interventions and military entailments. It doesn’t matter which side of the aisle you’re on, the political and media class of the D.C. /beltway establishment can always agree on more money, more power, more control and domination for the Empire. We get into all this and more. It’s a great one. enjoy!
Robbie, Under the name Fluorescent Grey, also scores the music for his sisters Abby Martin’s Show The Empire Files.

Bart Pronk from the Wim Hof Method joined me for a conversation about meeting Wim Hof, discovering his inner fire and journeying with the IceMan.
We talk about how the Wim Hof Method (WHM) can help you stay calm, focused and powerful in your everyday life. Barts trips with Wim to Poland, climbing Mt Sniezka in his shorts, swimming in freezing cold water, and meeting elves in LA. Bart travels with Wim and does many challenges and courses with him, live talks, conferences, and more.
The simple act of breathing can be so profound and so powerful to focus our minds and gain control over our nervous system. We talk about how anyone can do the WHM and the amazing benefits it can have.
The Wim Hof Method is different than anything I’ve ever done and the benefits are fantastic. We also talk about how WHM can help with depression, anxiety, grief, and tough times in our lives.
Bart was a part of the first ever Wim Hof Video course. You can see him in the video when you purchase the 10-week course.

Daniel Pinchbeck met me for a talk about his new book How Soon Is Now? From personal initiation to global transformation.
Daniel Pinchbeck is native born New Yorker, and the author of Breaking Open the Head: A Psychedelic Journey into the Heart of Contemporary Shamanism, 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, and Notes from the Edge Times. and his latest How Soon Is Now?
We had a really great conversation about the current state of crisis we find ourselves in, and how we can evolve to move through it and come out the other side. Daniel defies all labels and is true revolutionary thinker, one that we need at this moment in humanity timeline. The ideas he lays forth in his book address the problems we face together as one species, and as a part of the planet earth. We would be better off if we had more people like Daniel willing to mine the depths of far out occult and esoteric topics with an open mind, with direct experience, and while intelligently connecting the dots and building upon the ideas of the great thinkers that have influenced his work.
Daniel is a man on a mission to try and offer solutions to a path forward where we can shake off the dirt of a dying world, heal ourselves and save the planet!
You guys are really going to enjoy this conversation.
