Local Motion: Dennis McKenna, Part Two
This week on Local Motion, we present part two of Marty Durlin's interview with Dennis McKenna, about his book "The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss," which tells the story of Dennis and Terence McKenna's life together, beginning in Paonia.
The McKenna Brothers are two of Paonia's illustrious, possibly infamous, hometown icons. Younger brother Dennis is an ethnobotanist; older brother Terence, who died in 2000, was known for his books on psychedelics and the nature of consciousness, with such titles as "True Hallucinations" and "The Archaic Revival: Speculations on Psychedelic Mushrooms, the Amazon, Virtual Reality, UFOs, Evolution, Shamanism, the Rebirth of the Goddess and the End of History."
