"Six years in the making, this episode exposes one of the largest coverups in modern academic history – something that may one day be as large as the Piltdown Hoax. We’re going to reveal how the psychedelic revolution was launched by the CFR, CIA and the elite, and how R. Gordon Wasson, the so called discoverer of magic mushrooms, and the founder of the field of ethnomycology, was himself a government asset, a friend of Edward Bernays – the father of propaganda, and is one of the key figures for launching one of the largest mind control operations in history – information never before revealed until today. And it doesn’t stop there. I’m going to provide information that shows how R. Gordon Wasson may have been one of the key players in the organization of the JFK assassination."

Interesting, haven't listened to the whole thing, Jan Irvin seems to be reaching a bit, especially with the JFK assassination stuff.
Reminds me of when McGowan was doing those 60's articles,
started out thinking "oh...this is interesting" and by the 5th article,
"come on man...seriously?"
That said, I didn't know that Wasson was VP of JPMorgan & Co!
until I looked him up on wikipedia.
Just heard the name thrown around as the "discoverer of mushrooms",
should have done my research.
Lot's of weird stuff going on with the psychedelics in those days.
Bill Wilson (self-proclaimed "founder of AA") was taking tabs and
passing them out like hotcakes under the care of Aldous Huxley.
Most AAs do not have a clue about that, it is heavily covered up.
If you search for "Huxley" on official AA sites (silkworth) all that
is mentioned is Huxley's approval of Bill and his contributions to a newsletter.
I may write about the dark side of AA that is starting to rear it's
ugly head as I get deeper in. Approaching it from a journalistic
or inside-track perspective as much as possible. More another time...
still beats Hubbard and there are plenty of good people there with open minds...
Jan Irvin's podcast is a dramatic profile of the psychopathic elite. International banking, military intelligence, mass media, secret societies, think tanks, arms dealing, political assassinations, fascism, and psychedelic drugs.
A Hollywood movie script, a conspiracy theorist's wet dream? Jan is a responsible researcher, and I don't think any reasonable person who's looked at his work can conclude he's reaching. He often digs up some telling primary source documents.
The myth is that R Gordon Wasson discovered magic mushrooms by chance during a walk through the woods with his Russian bride, and that the article was picked up by Life magazine due to a chance encounter with the magazine's editor. His later scholarship in ethnomycology made him a kind of "new age patriarch".
The truth suggests that this was a fairytale cover story for a darker agenda, and that happenstance wasn't part of it.
Some highlights of Jan's essay:
- Wasson began as a journalist. His book "The Hall Carbine Affair" was a whitewash piece that helped cover up how J.P. Morgan Sr got rich at 24 by defrauding the US government with the resale of defective Civil War rifles in 1861. Wasson was rewarded with a promotion to the VP of Public Relations at JP Morgan Bank.
- JP Morgan Sr collected mushroom art, and JP Morgan Jr was interested in mycology while he was at Harvard (class of 1889, he studied under William Gilson Farlow, and later funded the Farlow reference Library at the Harvard Herbaria). It appears the Morgan family already had an interest in the magic mushroom, which casts doubt on Wasson's chance 'walk through the woods' story.
- Wasson was closely tied to Edward Bernays, and it's likely that Bernays trained Wasson in propaganda techniques.
- Wasson's boss at JP Morgan was Henry P Davidson, who was also a company director at Time-Life. This makes the publishing of Wasson's 1957 mushroom article in Life magazine due to a chance meeting later unlikely.
- It appears Wasson stole original research about magic mushrooms from scholar John G Bourke early on, perhaps helping Wasson establish his scholarly credentials.
- Wasson helped draft the Stock Exchange Act, perhaps a continuation of the banking machinations that JP Morgan Sr was involved in setting up the Federal Reserve.
- Wasson often acted as Chairman at the CFR, where he surely meet with Allen Dulles of the CIA.
- The connections between JP Morgan Bank, Skull & Bones, US military intelligence, and Time-Life are tight…Wasson was close friends with many Bonesmen in high places, and it's possible that Time-Life was set up in the first place by this group to spread propaganda to the American public.
- Other Time-Life and intelligence connections: CD Jackson, once a head of US Psychological Warfare, was vice-president of Time Life. CD Jackson purchased the Zapruder film of JFK's assassination, and stored it away for years in the vaults of Time-Life. Wasson was also close friends with George De Mohrenschildt, who was close to Lee Harvey Oswald and the CIA, and who's wife worked with Abe Zapruder. It was this network of connections that led JFK researcher Bruce Campbell Adamson to refer to Wasson as a CIA agent, and a suspect in the JFK conspiracy.
- A known CIA agent and chemist, James Moore, contributed money to one of Wasson's trips. The official history is that Wasson later discovered that the CIA was stealing his research…as Wasson was sending samples from Mexico to Albert Hofmann in Switzerland in order to synthesise the active ingredients, and there was a rumour their efforts were being stolen by the US Army. Irvin suggests that this was Wasson's purpose all along...this was an intelligence operation under the guise of independent scholarship.
