In this 87th Psychonautica Podcast, KMO and the Lovely Olga K interview playwright, Maggie Cino. KMO and Olga saw Maggie's play, Decompression, as part of the New York City Fringe Festival. In the play, a group of friends who have just returned from Burning Man decide to put all of their earthly possessions into a common pot and hold a lottery. The winner keeps everything and picks one other member of their group to be their slave. Everyone else must surrender their assets and leave town for a year. The play deals with the themes of sexuality, differential privilege, money and cultural stereotypes. Later in the podcast, KMO and Olga respond to a clip from a Trialogue between Terence McKenna, Ralph Abraham, and Ruppert Sheldrake. The clip comes from a podcast called A Deep Dive into the Mind of Terence McKenna (housed on C-Realm.com) created by Bruce Damer and EROCx1 which is a re-construction of Psychedelic Salon Podcast 316, which Lorenzo removed from the Psychedelic Salon archive at the request of Dennis McKenna. The podcast ends with praise for the film, The Secret Life of Mushrooms by Kat Greene.
