Dennis McKenna is perhaps the world’s best-known psychedelic ethnobotanist and a pioneer in the field of psychedelic research. He’s the author of several books, including ‘The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss’ which chronicles his life with his brother Terence McKenna.

More recently, he set up the McKenna Academy, a not for profit modern day mystery school. In this wide ranging conversation, we discuss psychedelic capitalism, Dennis’ thoughts on the future of psychedelic mainstreaming, indigenous reciprocity, the origins of ayahuasca and much more.
