Dive into the realms of sleep, psychedelics, and human performance.

Delve into the science behind sleep as longtime friend of the podcast, Dr. Kirk Parsley, joins me to unravel the mysteries of different sleep cycles and their profound impact on overall well-being. Doc Parsley knows all there is to know about sleep, and he’s here to shed light on the disadvantages of poor sleep and how it affects not just your physical performance, your mental acuity and emotional resilience too.

We also delve into the topic of psychedelics, particularly in the context of aiding veterans, and as an ex. Navy SEAL it’s a subject Doc knows only too well. Gain insights into the intersection of sleep science and psychedelic experiences, and hear Dr. Parsley’s personal journey with these mind-altering substances.
