Heads: A Biography of Psychedelic America


Psychedelic drugs came into the mainstream in the 1960s. What started as a hallucinogenic experimentation for some grew into a musical, artistic, philosophical, religious, spiritual, and economic movement. The drug companies and government took notice and legislation, enforcement, and Supreme Court rulings ensued. The reach of people directly or indirectly involved with the psychedelic movement extends to the creation of the internet, artificial intelligence, Apple computer, and even the little status messages seen in your social media. Listen to author Jesse Jarnow talk about his surprising new book.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
