Great Moments in Weed History w/ Abdullah and Bean is a podcast that delves deep into humanity's 10,000+ year relationship with cannabis (a.k.a. "marijuana") to find the humor, heart, and historical importance of this very special plant.
In each episode, co-hosts Abdullah Saeed and David Bienenstock take on a different great moment and highlight a new culture hero, covering everything from the night Willie Nelson smoked a joint on the roof of the White House to Maya Angelou’s life-changing first time getting stoned, Carl Sagan’s weed-fueled scientific epiphanies, and the compelling evidence that Jesus performed healing miracles by infusing THC into his Holy Anointing Oil.
”If you want to be at the center of a Venn diagram where Cannabis Enthusiast overlaps with History Buff, then download the podcast Great Moments in Weed History, which will turn your next couch-surfing session into a time-traveling, THC-trivia-packed adventure. Abdullah and Bean’s well-researched and thoughtfully stitched together stories would be interesting on their own, but what makes this podcast so fun to listen to is the easy-going stoner rapport between the co-hosts.” — The Los Angeles Times
