Google Takeover Plans, 17 Billion Earths to be Discovered In Milky Way, Interview- Mystic Chemist - Albert Hofmann and his Discovery of LSD

The Boston Bombing is still news, and we cover our pov on this impactful event, including where tech worked and failed in the investigative process.  As Google expands their fiber networks to more and more cities, we explore how all this massive impact will change the landscape of high tech players. Meanwhile NASA is finding new places for us to go and explore, once we figure out how..
And back on Earth, there is a renaissance of sorts that is happening in the world of medicinal psychedelics.  After 40 years of legislative prohibition, the noose on serious psychedelic research is starting to loosen with many new studies in their efficacy for treating issues like narcotic drug addictions, Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, and deep depression.
Our guest this week is Swiss author Dieter Hagenbach, co-author (with Lucius Werthmuller) of the just published book, Mystic Chemist, about the life and discovery of LSD, in the Swiss labs of Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, back in 1938.  Not just the average biochem geek, Hoffman’s spiritual nature helped shape his explorations of this most powerful mind change agent, and spawn a new generation of turned on youth.
And now that that first psychedelic generation of the 1960’s are grandparents, we see a return to basic therapetuic and medical research, back to where it all began in Switzerland, 70 years ago.
We had a chance to interview both authors of Mystic Chemist at the Psychedelic Science 2013 conference in Oakland a few days ago, where we go into more detail than what could be done on the air.  You also have a chance to meet Lucius Werthmuller, co-author with Dieter Hagenbach  of this amazing book.   This more in depth interview can be heard  by clicking here:

Dr Albert Hofmann would be a remarkable man even if he hadn't discovered the chemical compound that changed the course of the 20th century: LSD. Hofmann's chemical creations also include chemicals used every day in maternity and geriatric wards the world over.
