The Accidental Discovery of LSD

 Reactions  show

Summary: Bicycle day's just around the corner, but it's not what you think. This isn't a holiday honoring your favorite two wheeled, environmentally friend vehicle - it's about the day chemist Albert Hofmann first discovered the psychedelic effects of Lysergic Acid Diethylamide, or LSD-25. Today we're talking the chemical history of LSD, so get ready to turn on, tune in, but don't drop out... you might just learn something. Correction at 0:09 and 1:13: "Hoffman" should be spelled "Hofmann". We've added a correction (via annotation) -- we really regret missing this. Thanks to oildream for pointing this out.
