Psychedelic Journalism in the Age of Fake News

A talk by Michelle Janikian
Author, Your Psilocybin Mushroom Companion

Join psychedelic journalist and author of Your Psilocybin Mushroom Companion (Ulysses Press, 2019), Michelle Janikian, as she takes us behind the scenes on reporting some of her most popular pieces from the past year, including her investigative feature, “Psychedelics and Bipolar: An Investigation into the Potential Risks and Benefits”. She’ll talk about reporting on issues that question generally held beliefs in the psychedelic community, and the importance of finding out where these ideas originate to determine if they’re based on fact, fiction or stigma. Plus, she’ll discuss the value of journalists including more diverse voices in their stories about entheogens, and what it means to strike a balance between scientific findings, anecdotal reports, spiritual and indigenous rituals, and personal experience.
