Tom Zembrzuski, aka Your Mate Tom joins us for this episode of Adventures Through The Mind to talk about his journey from a psychedelic champion and youtube celebrity to a man traumatized, live on youtube, by the very substances he once promoted.

We talk about what inspired him to produce psychedelic content on youtube, the process of getting internet famous, and the encounter with a timeless hell that sent him spiralling into post-traumatic stress disorder.
