Joe McKay. Sharing Memories of Engine 201 and Finding Himself. Being Happy Again. Psychedelics as Therapeutics.

Content Warning: This episode contains graphic content. 

Welcome back to the hottest podcast in America, literally. 

Joe McKay was at Ground Zero on 9/11. He lost a lot of friends that day. And shortly afterwards, he lost something else. As a result of his exposures he began experiencing a rare condition called “Cluster Headaches”. It’s a debilitating condition and there were very few medical options for relief. None were effective.

But Joe didn’t give up and his search for relief led him down a different sort of path. With the approval and oversight of a trained medical professional Joe turned to psychedelics and experienced great results. Mind blowing results. Results that gave him back his life. And allowed him to feel happy again. It’s an eye opening conversation. It’s an inspiring conversation. And you can only get it here.
