E158: Michael Pollan: How To Change Your Mind

By Steven Bartlett

The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett

Thursday, 7 July

Michael Pollan is an author who between his five bestsellers has sold millions of books. Through exploring our connection to the natural world, he reveals sides of ourselves that we never knew we had.

As an author and a journalist, it’s Michael’s job to question everything. But in his 50s he turned the tables on himself and began to question his own assumptions. What followed was a one-of-a-kind journey that took him to explore the nature of his own perception of the world which would take him into trying going caffeine-free and trying psychedelic drugs.

Now, he shares what he’s learnt from that journey with us. Michael’s book, This is Your Mind on Plants, is out in paperback this summer, and his Netflix series How to Change Your Mind drops July 12th.
