This episode is a catch up with Doc's old friend Tommy Siera. Tommy is a basejumper, a skydiver and an all around wild guy. He competes in high level skydiving events and is a skydiving coach for those who want to up the artistic skills in the air.
During this conversation we go way off road. Discussing of course skydiving, basejumper and all the skills involved but we also take a deep look into the psyche of what it takes to live and work in such a dangerous sport.
During the conversation we also dive right into psychedelic drugs which Tommy has dealt with regularly over the years. It's a fantastic insight into that side of life that people don't often hear.
Buyer beware this episode is a wild one. But we really enjoyed it and we think you will too!
