Michael Pollan changed the way we write about food—and the way we eat it—with his best-selling books The Omnivore’s Dilemma, In Defense of Food, Food Rules, and more. He’s helped countless readers reframe the way they go to the supermarket, look at a menu, fill their children’s plates. In How to Change Your Mind, he gives us the fascinating account of how he reframed his own understanding of psychedelic drugs, combining cutting-edge medical and scientific research with his own adventures through altered states of consciousness.
Pollan will be in conversation with Alix Spiegel,co-founder of Invisibilia, a podcast and radio show from NPR about the unseen forces that control human behavior - our ideas, beliefs, assumptions, and thoughts. Over the course of her career in public radio, Spiegel has won many awards including a George Foster Peabody Award, an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award, and a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award.
