Episode 44: Psychedelics and Hostage Negotiation Techniques

Joe and I are a bit sick this week, so bare with us! I start off the podcast with something I learned on The Cracked Podcast. Apparently, people who suffer from PTSD can find a bit of relief through a combination of going to therapy and taking MDMA. In the context of business, I discuss FBI hostage negotiation techniques and how you can incorporate them into your marketing persuasion strategy.
