Under The Skin with Russell Brand

A weekly interview series from Russell Brand that examines what's beneath the surface—of the people we admire, the ideas that define our time, and the history we’re told. Speaking with guests from the worlds of academia, popular culture, and the arts, Russell seeks to uncover the ulterior truth behind our constructed reality. And have a laugh. On his new podcast ‘Above the Noise’ Russell guides us all—curious beginners, spiritual skeptics, and experienced practitioners—in brief, 10-minute meditations. Listen to Above the Noise on Luminary



episode 200: #200 Your Mind On Plants (with Michael Pollan)

This week’s guest is Michael Pollan! Michael is an american author and journalist. He is best known for his books that explore the socio-cultural impacts of food, such as The Botany of Desire and The Omnivore's Dilemma. His latest book is This Is Your Mind on Plants - in this book he explores in particular opium, caffeine, and mescaline.

We chat about Michael’s research on various drugs, from caffeine to psychedelics. We touch on the idea of transcendence, archetypes and reflect on the incredible power and intelligence all plants possess. They have been evolving a lot longer than we have, what else can they do that we’re not even aware of yet?
