EPISODES OF AMERICAN ROUTES WITH JAMES HUGHES

FROM THE SHOW: ELIXIRS

Author James Hughes discusses the ancient, recent, and cross-cultural relationships between drugs and music, which are the subject of his book Altered States: Creativity Under the Influence. Sinclair talks about how coffee, cannabis, heroin, cocaine, and ecstasy have all been used by musicians to help find the muse, and how those substances have shaped the music the performers created.
