A few weeks back, we've been hearing loads about psychedelic drugs and the use of them for recreational and spiritual and even medical use. We were mad curious and wanted to ask more Q's, SO, we invited on Ciara Sherlock - the founding director of The Psychedelic Society of Ireland. We chat to Ciara about how she became interested in psychedelic drugs, drug culture in Ireland in general and about her work as a lead facilitator of Psychedelic Experience Weekends, a programme offering legal, modern ceremonial retreats in The Netherlands using psilocybin-truffles.

This week, we're talking about our emerging from our lockdown cocoon, all things LGBTQ+ Pride and the Black Lives Matter movement.
If you liked what you hear, you can tune into Shitetalk every 2 weeks by pledging $6 per month.
In the wake of the George Floyd murder, and the subsequent protests sparked by this incredibly cruel act of police brutality in the US - we felt it was important to discuss our subconscious racial biases, our inaction up until this point, and how we are trying our very best to do better by educating ourselves.
Listen back on our Zoom live show, as we discussed problems sent in by listeners, and TRY to give a little advice and offer a fresh perspective. Thanks to the bunch of sounder patrons who jumped on the call and joined in.
A problem shared and all that...
...Just like the rest of the country, feelings of teenage angst and awkwardness came flooding back as Lenny Abrahamson's adaptation of Sally Rooney's 'Normal People' debuted on RTE. We go right back to our coming-of-age experiences - leaving school, starting college, first loves and first heartbreaks.
We're hearing all sorts of goss about single guys and gals getting their dating fix virtually during the COVID-19 lockdown. Video sex, zoom dates, Movie night voice noting... you guys are resourceful.
We're 100% obsessed with our Lola and Frankie, and it seems like all you guys are obsessed with your pets too. We chat about our current pets, past pets, and pet peeves.
Recorded on Zoom, FYI.
We were far to distracted to delve into new topics, so we decided to do a quickfire episode touching on several topics suggested by listeners.
We had an entirely different episode planned, but due to the dramatic change in current events, we felt how could we not talk about the absolute madness that is the COVID-19 pandemic.
