Bureau of Lost Culture: Child of the Counterculture (12/09/2021)
He was a Zelig, a holy fool, a trickster, a black magician, a sociopath, a charlatan, a genius, a fabulist, a junkie, an alcoholic, possibly a secret agent or a police informer, a disruptor, a sex mad preacher of Love who didn’t actually understand love.
And he a was father.
But what is it like to be the child of such person?
Comedian Vanessa Hollingshead and writer Jeannie Hilton tell the dark and intense story of Vanessa’s life with – and without – her father Michael Hollingshead, the working class hero turned LSD evangelist who, according to his own claim, turned on the world – or at the very least Timothy Leary and The Beatles and who, like many of those who have preached universal love and cosmic enlightenment to the masses, led a tragic and toxic personal life.
It’s a wild and crazy trip.
