ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Oh hey there! If you're having Game of Thrones withdrawals, might we suggest a dose of Nerdette? On this episode, we talk with a woman who administers drugs like LSD, Ecstasy, and psilocybin to volunteers in an effort to learn more about the human nervous system. Harriet de Wit, who runs the University of Chicago’s Human Behavioral Pharmacology Laboratory, tells us how those trials go down, how these drugs might be used therapeutically, and what causes people to take drugs in the first place. Nerdette comes out every other Friday and it's DELIGHTFUL AF. If you like it, subscribe here or wherever you get your podcasts!
