In his new book, "How to Change Your Mind," Michael Pollan turns his attention from food systems to the history, and current renaissance, of psychedelics. A growing body of research suggests that psychedelics may in fact have health benefits and help people cope with depression, anxiety and addiction. Pollan joins Forum to discuss his journey into the world of psychedelics and what studying them has taught him about the power of the human mind.

Guests:

Michael Pollan, journalism professor, UC Berkeley; author, "How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence"
