Our Town Reno

Rico, Preparing DMT and Grieving his Brothers in Reno

Episode Summary

As part of our series of street audio postcards, Scott King interviews Rico who was carrying around tree branches after others asked him to try to make some DMT with root bark. He says he lost his way after losing three brothers in short succession, but that he's a good soul. “I’ve been in Reno for approximately six years and I would sum up my experience in Reno with patience, pain, and love,” Rico said. He says he hopes to soon enroll at TMCC and take classes like psychology, philosophy and languages like Hindu or American Sign Language. Those classes will prepare him, he says, to take on a position as a life coach, aside from his pursuits as an artist.
