My Thoughts: How long until Chris Aubrey Marcus mentions ayahuasca? The answer is about 12 minutes into the podcast. Lots of hippy-dippy talk from Aubrey. He says “pleasure monkey” way too much. Aubrey often steers conversations towards talk about drugs. Aubrey tells a 20+ minute story about what he saw while on ayahuasca. In my opinion, drug stories are like hearing about someone’s dream: it’s only interesting to the person who experienced it. Some talk about boxing, MMA, and kickboxing. You know if you want to listen to this or not.
