Too Much to Dream: A Psychedelic American Boyhood | The Disinfocast with Matt Staggs: Episode 03

PBiTunes | Download (mp3) | RSS

In this episode of The Disinfocast I interview Peter Bebergal, who went looking for meaning and found ritual magick, punk rock and hallucinogenics instead. I talk with Bebergal about his new memoir Too Much to Dream: A Psychedelic American Boyhood, stopping along the way to parse out the difference between magick and mysticism, the mythic power of Marvel Comics and whether or not LSD is a valid tool for enlightenment.

Listen to Peter Bebergal’s journey on the latest episode of The Disinformation Company’s official podcast, The DisinfoCast.

    You know my problem with this podcast is that I listen to it when I’m away from home usually driving and by the time I get back I don’t have the the presence of mind to come back on here and comment. But I do enjoy these much, thank you for providing them.

    don’t mean to be a nitpicking cunt, but the picture used for the article is not of LSD or any commonly used psychedelic, it is of obscure street drug DOB, which is a 30 hour amphetamine version of LSD and sometimes used as ‘fake LSD’ in the drug market.

      How could you know what was on that specific blotter paper?
