headling with psychadelics beats the hell out of healing with psychedelics.

I believe 'headling' is a term of art. Headling something is like handling something, only you do it with your head instead of your hand.

Looking forward to listening to this. It's good to see someone reputable talking about micro-dosing.

Tim Ferris podcast is excellent listening, far better than his mad scientist lifehack books. The ones with Arnold Schwartzenegger and the Memeise found stick in the mind as brilliant.
