On this episode of the Psychedelia Podcast, we speak to Gay Dillingham: filmmaker, environmentalist and producer. Gay has just released a film 20 years in the making, “Dying to Know”,
a documentary about the relationship between two of the most
influential people in the history of modern psychedelics, Timothy Leary
and Richard Alpert (or Ram Dass). The film brings us to face with the
taboo of death and how the psychedelic experience can help our society
come to terms with mortality. Here, Gay discusses the making of the
film, along with her own encounters with death and tragedy, and how
psychedelics could begin to change the way we view mortality.
