Dennis McKenna, well-known ethnopharmacologist, author and editor in chief of our newest publication, Ethnopharmacologic Search for Psychoactive Drugs (ESPD50) was interviewed on the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast on June 22nd.

The podcast consists of almost 3 hours of mind expanding goodness, with Joe and Dennis covering a vast array of topics. Dennis tells of the history behind the ESPD50 book project and conference, spanning all the way back to the first symposium in 1967.

In addition, he briefly touches upon the exciting past of the Institute of Ecotechnics, and the diverse projects it has brought into fruition worldwide. Such projects include: the  R.V. Heraclitus, the Theatre of All Possibilities, the Biosphere2 project as well as Synergetic Press itself!

If you haven’t already checked out this exciting podcast, we recommend that you do so! It is full to the brim with interesting discussions about consciousness, the psychedelic experience, and how the current paradigm seems to be shifting as mainstream awareness of these topics increases.

A Big Thanks to Our Customers

In key with shifting paradigms, we want to give a big thank you to everyone that purchased the book! Your support for this project means the world to us as it is your support of independent publishing that makes it worth our while!

As Dennis mentions in the podcast, we only printed 1000 copies of the book, and they have all been sold to date! The book is now going into a second printing, with only 1500 more copies being put into circulation. These books are now available to purchase on backorder, and we are aiming to get them printed, and shipped to you by early September!
