Leishmaniasis (Solo Pod)

Leishmaniasis (Solo Pod)

investigating the thin line that divides the parasitic from the symbiotic

Show notes

In this episode I host a parasite instead of a conventional guest. In the Mexican jungle, deforestation unleashed Leishmania, a parasite vectored by a sandfly, and I am infected. Marked by volcanic lesions on my left cheek and right hand I'm undergoing an impatient transformation(TM), and as I wait for medicine to arrive, I examine my experience through shamanic, ecological, and pragmatic lenses. Relaying the story in classic SPAOP-fashion, I investigate themes of inter-species diplomacy, the thin line between a parasite and a symbiot, between psychedelic ecology and ecodelic psychology, between parasitology and parapsychology, and contemplate the merits of redemption.
