The intent of the podcast is to bring you the listener an easily accessible resource for a variety of topics all related to psychedelic research. There is a lot to learn about new research into the therapeutic potential of psychedelics and marijuana. Over the years, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) has amassed an incredible treasure trove of audio archives sourced from the amazing talks, presentations and panels that have taken place at past Psychedelic Science conferences and other unique events. By selecting some of that content and then bringing it to you in a podcast we hope to create a centralized location for the greater MAPS community. If you're a researcher, scientist, medical professional or just a curiosity seeker we hope that you'll find this content a valuable resource tool. Please visit the MAPS website at www.maps.org The MAPS Podcast is hosted by Zach Leary. Zach is also the host of the “It’s All Happening” podcast, a blogger/writer, futurist, spiritualist, connected technology consultant and socio-cultural theorist.

I like, you know, the topics. They're, you know, really interesting. But the host interrupts too much, talks too much, and, like, you know, could use the language better.... actually.
Even when interviewing Rick Doblin, the founder of MAPS, the host interrupts > 3 times/minute. The host talks OVER Rick Doblin. The host reinterprets what Rick is trying to say.
Think of a CLEAR question in your head. Formulate it concisely. Then ask that clear, concise question and wait for the guest's response.... without interjecting or interrutping. Until that happens, this will be a podcast less that it could be.
In the Doblin interview, the host had more than 7 minutes of introduction before getting to Rick.
If the host wants his own podcast, great - create a podcast separate from MAPS: The Zach Leary Show.
Think of the mission. Work for that.
Informative and interesting
great way to stay up to date on MAPS
A great podcast!!!!! But.......
But where did it go?????
