Adventures Through The Mind
James W. Jesso
Adventures Through The Mind is an interview-based podcast hosted by Canadian author and public educator, James W. Jesso.

James W. Jesso is the author of Decomposing The Shadow: Lessons From The Psilocybin Mushroom and The True Light Of Darkness, both about his experiences exploring the potentials of psychedelics.
