Nostalgia, the Greatest Intoxicant

I was listening to the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast this morning and a quote from the guest strongly resonated with me. Jakob Dylan is the lead singer and primary songwriter for the band The Wallflowers and said, “nostalgia is the greatest intoxicant” referring to music and what it does to our brains when we hear a song. Many times we will hear a song that reminds us of a time in our life where we felt intense emotions.
