Episode Notes

Dr. Julie Holland, a psychopharmacologist and psychiatrist in New York, talks about what happens in our bodies when we are connected with people – and the damage that occurs when we’re disconnected. Today she talks about her book, ‘Good Chemistry – The Science of Connection from Soul to Psychedelics’, and how various drugs, therapies, and changes of mindset can help us mitigate and heal that damage to give us a feeling of connection and unity.

Dr. Holland is the editor of ‘The Pot Book’ and ‘Ecstasy: A Complete Guide’, and the author of ‘Moody Bitches’, ‘Weekends at Bellevue’, and now, ‘Good Chemistry’.
