Los Angeles, CA
I felt the pressure for episode 6.
The Slate article that Shane wrote doubled our audience in a couple of hours. When the weekend ended, we had tripled our audience.
This episode was one of the most diverse to date. We touched on several topics including reactions to The Slate piece, a pair of 50 Cent documentaries I watched, Eugene Jarecki's drug war documentary The House I Live In, Shane's bad trips, one of my bad trips during a Phish show at Alpine Valley. a brief history of LSD research in America when the CIA paid Ken Kesey to test it, Shane's friend from NYC who was busted for weed, the amazing web series High Maintenance, and how it compared to Shane's stint as a marijuana delivery guy in NYC.
