We all want relief—and now more than ever, we’re finding it in psychedelics. From underground parties to Silicon Valley, micro-dosing and psychedelic therapy have officially hit the mainstream. But in the rush to legalization, are we overlooking a pattern of deception and abuse among some of the movement’s leaders? The story centers on Lily Kay Ross, who was abused and discouraged from speaking out publicly. She’s now back to uncover some of the movement’s secrets and have an honest dialogue before psychedelic therapy goes mainstream. Cover Story is a new investigative podcast series drawing on New York’s history of richly reported features. The first season, Power Trip, uncovers the truth behind the psychedelic renaissance. Hosted by iO Tillett Wright. From New York Magazine and the Vox Media Podcast Network.
