Terrence McKenna: Riding range with Marshall McLuhan

Just came across this audio of philosopher and mushroom-enthusiast Terrence McKenna discussing McLuhan. Not sure where or when the recording comes from, it sounds like a small seminar, Esalen-esque.  It's a fascinating listen if you're in to that sort of thing...McKenna references McLuhan's work as a Joyce scholar and reads from Understanding Media.
