Cannabis makes you feel more interesting than you are

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but when smoking pot with someone and having a great conversation, the other person will say “we should be recording this.” In our day and age of podcasts, I have had a few different friends say that to me, and then pitch me the idea of getting stoned and recording us talking as a podcast. I actually have a podcast, so I know how much work they are ,but I am tired of explaining that to people who won’t believe it anyway. Cannabis can generate such sparkling conversation that it’s easy to think that all you need to do is record it and play it back. This is not the case at all, and the result is something that is incredibly boring and rambling to people who are not high on cannabis. I am not saying I don’t use marijuana while I work on my show — of course I do — but I also put in the work. Off the cuff conversations seem interesting when you are having them, especially while high, but they just don’t translate. Even though I smoke cannabis every single day, I still know the difference between a good idea and a dumb high idea that just sounds good. The last time I hung out with Mark we got blazed on some Purple Haze and he talked about recording a podcast. So I recorded us on my phone as we killed off the last of the Haze and moved on to the OG Kush. The next day he listened to it, and realized it was terrible.
