The Shaman and The Scientist with Sarah Hutt
On today's show I talk with author and film maker Sarah Hutt about her latest documentary The Shaman and The Scientist. The Shaman and The Scientist is a short exploration of knowledge and scientific discovery, exploring the potential of indigenous plant-based medicine in the Amazon jungle from the perspective Don Juan Tangoa Paima, a shaman who uses native plants and Ayahuasca to heal, and Dr. Dennis McKenna an American ethnobotanist on a hunt to discover new medicines.
'What's the value of a cure for AIDS that grew in a forest you cut down last week?' - Dr. Dennis McKenna
