Alexander Beiner joins us on Adventures Through The Mind to discuss the rise of psychedelic capitalism, its impact on the culture, and the risk of us losing something promising if we get swept up by various narratives for-profits models are seeding into our minds.

We also discuss modern Western culture’s crisis of meaning, the dissolution of trust in institutions, "the internet of beefs", and the challenge of sensemaking in our modern technological landscape.
