Brian Muraresku is the author of the new book The Immortality Key: The Secret History of the Religion with No Name. Brian initially trained as a classicist gaining a degree in Latin, Greek and Sanskrit from Brown University and since then, as a member of the New York Bar, he has been practicing law internationally for fifteen years. In 2016, he became the founding executive director of Doctors for Cannabis Regulation, whose work has been featured by CNN, ESPN, VICE and The Washington Post. In arbitration with the NFL, he represented the first professional athlete in the United States to request a therapeutic use exemption for cannabis. Alongside this work he has been engaged in a quest for over a decade to prove that the original Christian sacrament was a psychedelic potion inherited from the ancient Greeks. This is the subject of his new book, The Immortality Key: The Secret History of the Religion with No Name and is what we talk about today, I hope you enjoy the conversation.
