Jordan Tishler (Double Lives and Resurrections)

Jordan Tishler was living a kind of double life, even as he produced my first two albums, ‘Life Underwater’ and ‘Church of the Kitchen Sink’ … truth is, he’s always been a doctor on top of being a music producer. Now, he’s a vibrant voice in the medical cannabis industry. We go deep on the music days (with shout-outs to Mission of Burma, The Neighborhoods, U2, Midnight Oil, The Motion Sick, Vishnu, Dan Bern, and more). We dive into twists of fate, vanishing acts, self-confidence and self-doubt, post-pandemic PTSD, the nature of prescribing THC for people, and how healthcare is working to work with marijuana in the new world.
