In the first in a series of passionate explorations we discover the connections between leading scientists today and yesterday, with one contemporary scientist looking back upon the life of another whose experience has fascinating parallels to their own.

Susan Blackmore delves into the unique connecting point between herself and LSD pioneer Albert Hofmann- someone she has admired for decades.
