Well... I'm co-hosting a new podcast called Dope Stories.
My pal Shaniac (poker pro from NYC who lives in LA) approached me at the end of last summer. He had envisioned a new podcast idea, which came to him after a psychedelic adventure (for more info, read Shaniac's take on it.... Dope Stories... I Got A Few). At the same time Shaniac had this epic "moment of clarity", I was on Phish tour and engaging in my own mind-bending adventures. He said I was the perfect person to help him bring his vision to a reality. A podcast about drugs? Sign me up! I jumped on board. Shane tapped his pal DJ Trent to help us produce the podcast. Several months later... it's here.
We launched Dope Stories on Bob Marley's Birthday to commemorate our first episode.

iTunes: COMING SOON!
Our tagline for Dope Stories is... "a rational discussion about drugs and drug use." Dope Stories will be weekly podcast (new episodes every Thursday). Along the way, I'll tell a few stories about the craziness of being on the road and following the Grateful Dead and Phish.
The first episode features a segment on the origins of the Chemdawg strain, which has something to do with Dead summer tour in 1991.
If I had to construct a "setlist" for the first episode of Dope Stories, it might look something like this:
