Described as the 'Timothy Leary of viral videos,' Jason Silva is a futurist, filmmaker and the host of National Geographic shows such as 'Brain Games and 'Origins,' as well as his own YouTube series called 'Shots of Awe.'
Welcome to the third episode of The Green Fund's CannaCast! The CannaCast will feature pre-eminent figures within the cannabis space, whether it be entrepreneurs, doctors, chefs, or CEO's of cannabis companies, we'll be speaking to the people that have made waves in the cannabis industry. As such, we bring you the guest of our third episode of The CannaCast, Jason Silva!
Jason Silva has been described as the 'Timothy Leary of the viral age,' for his viral YouTube videos in which Jason discusses philosophies, ideas, and perceptions about the world that excite him. Jason's exuberance and excitement about life are contagious, as he presents a worldview that is both unique and optimistic about the future.
Videos of Jason Silva on YouTube have amassed millions of views, namely through his speeches, his podcast 'Flow Sessions', and his 'Shots of Awe' series, in which the self-described "wonder-junkie" attempts to thread together various philosophical concepts, modes of being, and cutting-edge technological developments to create an exciting, cohesive worldview.
Jason's ability to articulate and synthesize different philosophers and intellectuals' ideas have landed him speaking roles at TED, SXSW and Google, as well as allowing him to host his own shows on National Geographic such as 'Origins' and 'Brain Games.'
When it comes to cannabis, and psychedelic drugs more broadly, Jason believes these can be tools to "hack" the brain and to put us into our "flow state." If you're wondering what this means, strap in and enjoy my discussion with Jason Silva.
