Fascinating and engaging!!

Description

We all want relief—and now more than ever, we’re finding it in psychedelics. From underground parties to Silicon Valley, micro-dosing and psychedelic therapy have officially hit the mainstream. But in the rush to legalization, are we overlooking a pattern of deception and abuse among some of the movement’s leaders? The story centers on Lily Kay Ross, who was abused and discouraged from speaking out publicly. She’s now back to uncover some of the movement’s secrets and have an honest dialogue before psychedelic therapy goes mainstream. Cover Story is a new investigative podcast series drawing on New York’s history of richly reported features. The first season, Power Trip, uncovers the truth behind the psychedelic renaissance. Hosted by iO Tillett Wright. From New York Magazine and the Vox Media Podcast Network.

4. Bad Hug
2303
We go to the source - a Mexican psychotherapist named Salvador Roquet, who is known as a “master of bad trips.” It starts to dawn on “Susan” that the problem is not her one rogue mentor. What if boundary crossing is baked into the psychedelic guide training, and implicates Francoise Bourzat and her husband Aharon Grossbard? Credits Cover Story is a production of New York magazine.

3. I Am the Wolf
3159
We cross through the portal to the underground where “Susan” goes through the training to become a psychedelic therapist. Her mentor Eyal crosses way too many boundaries. (Is he the wolf?). And we finally meet Francoise Bourzat, honey-voiced trainer of trainers. In an earlier version of episode 3, we misidentified Eyal Goren as a “licensed therapist.” He became a licensed therapist in the State of California in November of 2019. When "Susan" became his client, he was still registered as an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist. We’ve updated the episode to correct the mistake.
