Welcome to The Third Wave
At The Third Wave we provide well-researched, high-quality information specific to the classic psychedelics – and how they can be used to help people like you live more vibrant lives.
“A lot of the people who are leading the movement now are 60 or 70 years old, based in academia or research,” Mr. Austin said. “But to catalyze change, you have to speak to people, get to them on an emotional level.”
“I’m trying to find answers to the questions that people are asking where the clinical research is lacking. The problem is the research is so expensive and the stuff that does come out won’t really provide a lot of the answers people are looking for.”

The Third Wave’s Microdosing Course is an in-depth online course that will teach you all the ins and outs of microdosing, with a particular focus on how you can harness this cutting-edge technology to live a better life.
Most people who are interested in microdosing face three BIG problems when considering microdosing:
- How do I get the substance safely and legally?
- Once I get it, how do I prepare it?
- Once I prepare it, how do I best utilize it?
Our podcast takes a fresh look at the world of psychedelics, listening to the stories of people both in the psychedelic fringe and in mainstream society. We want to share how psychedelics are impacting the lives of people from all walks of life.
By revealing and unraveling the vast range of psychedelic experiences, we plan to explore how the responsible, structured use of psychedelics is contributing to building a better, more equitable world.

Specific to the psychedelic world, the “Science-first” narrative has driven psychedelic policy for the previous ten years. Paul believes it is time for the conversation to evolve beyond science and research.
