In this episode of the Psychedelic Therapy Frontiers podcast Dr. Steve Thayer and Dr. Reid Robison are joined by Tanner Yarro.

Tanner shares his perspective on combating the stigma around psychedelic therapy specifically and psychotherapy generally. They also explore how he navigates being a nonconformist in his culture of religious faith and how playing Dungeons & Dragons can be good therapy.
