Another Beautiful Forest – Stuck in Customs

Another Beautiful Forest

Trey’s 360 Podcast, “Walking with Clever People”

Welcome to Season 4, Episode 11! In this moody episode, I wander with Kevin Rose through a beautiful forest in Portland, Oregon. Before I tell you what we talk about, let me tell you more about Kevin!

Kevin is one of the fun success stories of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs. I first came across him while watching Diggnation, which was the regular show in the orbit of the site he founded, Besides that, he was a founder with Revisiion3, Pownce, and Milk. After all that, he was a partner at Google Ventures. Now he lives in Portland with his awesome brainy wife Daria and his daughter Zelda. There’s another daughter on the way any day now, judging by Daria’s ponderous belly.

Kevin has a great podcast that I’ve recommended a few times and I’ll do it now again: Go check out The Kevin Rose Show. I’m going to be on an upcoming episode but I can’t say what we talk about!

Note you can control the camera by grabbing the screen and moving it around. It’s a little wonky because the gyro was not calibrated, but think of it like a game. If you have enough bandwidth, click the gear and choose the maximum resolution!

As for this walk n’ talk, we discuss a myriad of subjects:
Vulnerability, Kevin’s dad and approval of strangers
Why we love Japan
Psychedelics and counseled sessions using psilocybin
Hug in the Secret Whisky Bar

Here are links to stuff we mentioned:
Book – Geek in Japan
Book – How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence
Podcast – Michael Pollan interviewed by Kevin Rose
Trey’s Gear and Kit Page
