How to Become a Fossil: A 5 Step Program for Longevity and Success
Are you over this life and not particularly interested in being preserved in the Metaverse? Does being preserved as a fossil sound like a more fulfilling way to extend your existence into perpetuity? Well then do we have the program for you!

Maricela works with fossils and their data at the California Academy of Sciences, and organizes Nerd Nite SF in her “spare” time. Sometimes speakers have to cancel at the last minute and then she has to come up with a talk to give. This is one of those times.

Get the f*** out of the bike lane! with Noam Osband
Noam is our friendly neighborhood anthropologist-director-producer-singer-of-nerdy-songs. Through his tunes you’ll learn about moth lifecycles and various other topics, including but not limited to urban cycling etiquette and his PhD research on migrant labor. 

Noam is an anthropologist, musician, and director/producer living in San Francisco. He helps us learn stuff through songs and restores faith in humanity by interviewing people on the street about their first kiss, among other things. 

Becoming Psychedelic People with Dr. Mellody Hayes
Dr. Hayes is on a mission to get you and everyone around you to wake up and reject the Disneyland version of yourself. While she wants you all to love yourselves and connect with others, she is also bringing the transformative power of psychedelic-assisted therapies to those experiencing post traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, and the complex emotions of end-of-life care. She’ll help us overcome alienating dominant narratives through community-building, discuss her work in changing the western medicine narrative of psychedelics, and highlight psychedelic medicine’s ability to remap pathways of pain in patients with PTSD and other mental illnesses.  

Dr. Mellody Hayes is an evidence-based and spiritually-centered medical expert in the emerging clinical science of Psychedelic Medicine. Dr. Hayes is a graduate of Harvard and UCSF medical school and is an anesthesiologist, leader, public speaker and founding member of Decriminalize Nature. She’s also the founder of a Bay Area clinic that offers psychedelic ketamine therapy. Dr. Hayes is the creator of How We Heal, an online community of healers and leaders committed to creating belonging, safety, and health for all people, particularly those from historically marginalized communities. Get to know her more in this podcast!
