This fortnight's episode of psychonautica is beamed live from the Dolphins coffeeshop in Amsterdam, and features a 3-way conversation between Max Freakout, The Seeker and Ravi. First Max reads out an LSD trip report from Dopey J, then the trio discuss 'crisis' experiences, the new Blairwitch spinoff movie 'shroom', LSD doses, psychedelic and psycholytic psychotherapy, safety issues of tripping in public environments, the role of music as a tool in combination with psychedelics, Neurolinguistic programming, and other techniqes for overcoming addictions, the relevance of addiction to problems of self-control and egodeath theory, isolation/floatation tanks and their potential for combination with psychedelics, ketamine, dissociation, sensory deprivation and the womb-regression experience. Following some herbal refreshments the trio return to talk about the idea of a paradigm shift, the authenticity of taking entheogens in contrast with other spiritual practises, and evolutionary advantages to plants which contain psychoactive chemicals.

Pull up a bean bag and some pillows while you chill out at BB's Bungalow! Chill out for an hour or so of chilled-out beats and conversation to get positively blazed to, just don't forget to puff, puff, pass! Only a touch of comedy this week because BB felt like spinning toons instead, especially the ones sent in by two listeners Jon and Pothead! We're also joined at the Bungalow by favourite guest Hermit Girl to give you the inside story on our stoned weekend away...
Join us again for our special 'What's Up Double Doc?' segment where the Doc discusses the links between cannabis and red eye, the quest for other substances containing THC (sea urchins?!) and listen in as DoubleDoc frankly answers Pothead's question from the forums!
We'll hear some listener's emails from Jon, Mr Wink and Kennibis and if you're in town, check out Entheogenesis Australia:
Special thanks once again to Esse.B for the Bungalow's brand new Intro music!! You can listen to more of Esse.B's awesome tracks here:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or Skype and leave a voicemail at BlackBeauty1977 with your emails, comments or questions for DoubleDoc (or post at The Grow Report forums!). And remember to chill out with a new BB's Bungalow - on the last Thursday of every month!

In the 20th installment of psychonautica, Max Freakout talks about a recent podcast by kmo about meditation and psychedelics, and the recent dopecast Amsterdam meetup. Then in response to listener emails, Max talks about salvia divinorum addiction and safety issues, the importance of 'set' in the outcome of a psychedelic experience, the medicinal use of various psychoactive drugs, entheogenic plants as a 'trojan horse' to Western societies from shamanic cultures, vaporizing DMT successfully in a herbalair vaporizer and the 'afterglow' of the DMT breakthrough. Topics raised in the psychonautica forum are also discussed, such as smokable DMT extracts, cultivating Salvia Divinorum and exotic strains of psilocybe mushroom, ayahuasca analogues, the chemical similarity of psilocybin to DMT, the distinction between mycophobic and mycophilic cultures and finally the relation of psychedelics to sexuality.
