06: Ayahuasca & Frog Medicine with Peter Gorman
In this episode I chat with writer, explorer and naturalist Peter Gorman. Peter is an award-winning journalist and former editor of High Times magazine who has written two books on Amazonian plant medicines, Ayahuasca in my Blood and Sapo in my Soul. Peter’s a true old-school raconteur and talking with him is like hanging out with a colourful uncle who has the most incredible stories — you’re never quite sure where the line between truth and fiction lies, but you’re so entertained that you really don’t care.
In this conversation Peter recounts some of his adventures with ayahuasca and the frog medicine known as sapo or kambo, and I ask him to speak about responsible harvesting and use of sapo/kambo in light of growing worldwide interest.
