Dopey 362: Carolyn ’Mountain Girl’ Garcia, Psychedelic OG, Merry Prankster, Wife of Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead

June 25, 2022

This week on Dopey! Carolyn 'Mountain Girl' Garcia tells her story! From ibogaine in Palo Alto, to LSD with Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters. Going on the road and starting a family with Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead. Ultimately enduring a marriage with a total heroin and cocaine addict as husband and father of her children. This is a very, very special Dopey indeed! Plus emails, and a bit more on an extra long, extra heady episode of the good ol' Dopey show!

Dopey Podcast is the world’s greatest podcast on drugs, addiction and dumb shit. Chris and I were two IV heroin addicts who loved to talk about all the coke we smoked, snorted and shot, all the pills we ate, smoked, all the weed we smoked and ate, all the booze we consumed and all the consequences we suffered. After making the show for 2 and a half years, Chris tragically relapsed and died from a fentanyl overdose. Dopey continued on, at first to mourn the horrible loss of Chris, but then to continue our mission - which was at its core, to keep addicts and alcoholics company. Whether to laugh at our time in rehab, or cry at the worst missteps we made, Dopey tells the truth about drugs, addiction and recovery. We continually mine the universe for stories rife with debauchery and highlight serious drug taking and alcoholism. We also examine different paths toward addiction recovery. We shine a light on harm reduction and medication assisted treatment. We talk with celebrities and nobodies and stockpile stories to be the greatest one stop shop podcast on all things drugs, addiction, recovery and comedy!
