Lucy in the Sky with Dolphins

Back in the 1960s, neuroscientist John C. Lilly ran a NASA-funded research unit where humans attempted to communicate with dolphins. Somewhere along the line, LSD got thrown into the mix, a researcher became sexually involved with a dolphin, and things generally got a bit weird. Anthony and Jeff discuss how the hell this happened and what it did to dolphin science.
