"We hope you've enjoyed your summer because Higher Education is back in session. And this time, we have the long-awaited, frequently-requested mushroom expert, Paul Stamets, to steer our ship to brave new heights. Paul, mycologist and author of Psilocybe Mushrooms and Their Allies and Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World, will be unearthing answers to all of your wildest questions.

Psilocybin mushrooms have attracted the interest of pharmacologists, evolutionary biologists, ethnomycologists, artists, writers, and more recently, addiction and trauma specialists, and computer language coders. The interest in the benefits of psilocybin mushroom use, particularly for microdosing, ushers in a new era for potential societal benefits across many scientific disciplines. Paul will examine the Stoned Ape Theory, recap some significant historical milestones, and describe some of the more significant psilocybin active species, discussing the future beneficial impacts of psilocybin use in our continuing evolution."
