Ep 36 - Duncan Trussell and the Unification of the Atman

To create a form or a sense of self, we exteriorize these foggy memories in the form of our momentos and cherish them, because it’s as close as we can get to escaping the inevitable truth that all things will be initiated by the force of time.
— Duncan Trussell

Duncan Trussell is a stand-up comedian, and the host of the Duncan Trussell Family Hour podcast. Duncan has studied and dived deep into the worlds of psychedelics, Buddhism, Hinduism, and magick.
