EP 38 - Rick Doblin | The Future of Psychedelics

In this episode

This week's episode of Next With Novo features psychedelic pioneer and activist Rick Doblin. Rick is the founder and executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), a nonprofit working to raise awareness and understanding of psychedelics and their practical application.

We begin by discussing Rick’s origin story and how he came to work in the field of psychedelic research. Rick explains the ins and outs of his work advocating for psychedelics and the challenges of pushing up against societal misunderstanding. We speak about the many valuable applications of things like MDMA therapy and share our mutual excitement about the many ways these treatments can impact our national healthcare.
