Review for Shane Mauss:

Shane's massive 110 city Good Trip Comedy Tour, which has been selling out night after night, is a one-of-a-kind comedy show that is part stand-up, part funny stories of experiences, and part Ted Talk on the theme of psychedelics. He takes his audience on a funny journey through the stigma, history, laws and science of psychedelics while sharing personal experiences. Through humor, he demystifies and destigmatizes psychedelics. It's some of the most thoughtful and unique humor you will ever see. 

Midway through his highly successful Good Trip Tour, Shane wanted to dive a little deeper into exploring the world of DMT, and decided to start giving talks about his DMT experiences and insights. Thus The DMT Talk, an educational conversation on DMT, was born. As host of the science podcast Here We Are, he’s spent the last two years talking with scientists about how the mind works and uses what he has learned in his interpretations of the DMT experience. No prior psychedelic experience or knowledge is required. Just an inquisitive mind.  

Shane Mauss is nationally touring stand-up whose career was launched after winning the award for Best Stand-Up at the HBO US Comedy Festival. On TV, Shane has performed on CONAN five times and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Showtime and Comedy Central Presents and his special "Mating Season" is available on Netflix. He headlines stages around the world and has released three comedy albums including the most recent, ‘My Big Break’, which went to #1 on the comedy iTunes charts and praised as "a hilarious, multi-faceted experience, capable of sustaining multiple listens" (9/10, Exclaim!).  

Shane is also the creator and host of the popular podcast “Here We Are” where he interviews scientists and academics to find out what makes us who we are, exploring evolution, neuroscience, relationships and more.

It tells about a man who walks up to a young boy on a beach, this just after a strong storm had washed hundreds of helpless starfish onto the shore. The boy was picking up the stranded starfish and, one at a time, ... (click for more)
