Monocle Magazine interviewed me for the Sunday radio show about my new book, Sex Drugs and Rock n’ Roll: The Science of Hedonism and the Hedonism of Science. You can check out (and download) the show here.

I’m on air about 20 minutes in, yapping about live sex acts in labs, LSD as a treatment for alcoholism, a man who wears a birdcage on his head, how Timothy Leary was a twat, where the clitoris is located according to Vesalius, how music is our species’ greatest achievement, and why goats have oral sex. (My answer: “Why not?”)

I would like the record to show that I got to sneak in a quote from the unparalleled Peter Farrell about the influence of drugs on music (drum & bass + ketamine = dub step).
