Podcast E64: Editing videos and smoking marijuana – Leopold Medley

Good day everyone, E64 is upon us!

A few days ago I check the r/leaves community and found an interesting post from Leopold, a full-time video editor/artist based in New York City. Leopold started smoking when he was 18, and what soon started as a fun activity became an endless, chasing-high habit.

In this video, we discussed his beginnings with marijuana, his career, his burnout and his sober journey. 

This is a great episode for anyone working long hours and using weed as a coping tool.

Thanking Leopold for making this happen, make sure you go and check out his YouTube channel!
