Psilocybin - the compound found in so-called ‘magic’ mushrooms - is looking so
promising as a treatment for depression and addiction, that some researchers are
comparing this ‘breakthrough’ medical technology to the discovery of penicillin as an
antibiotic almost a century ago.
Magic mushrooms, and other psychedelics have been in use for THOUSANDS of years. It
is perhaps well overdue that modern science play catch up.
I have in studio with me Leonie Joubert. No stranger to CapeTalk, she is one of the
country's finest science journalists and has a special interest in psilocybin/shrooms -
including the podcast called The Psychonauts.
