Ken Jordan is the co-founder and editorial director of Lucid News. In 2007, he co-founded the consciousness network Evolver and it’s online journal, Reality Sandwich, which he edited until 2019. At Evolver, he produced podcasts, live events, and online courses with many of the leading figures of the psychedelic movement, and in 2016, Ken co-founded the companies botanical dispensary The Alchemist Kitchen in Manhattan.

From a childhood steeped with political activism and culture to an adult life in business and politics, riding the waves of change, Ken has learned to devote his energy to the areas which see the most potential for radical, real world change. As we see some of those changes starting to take shape, Ken continues to be a source of news, information, and a channel for communication in the movements of today.
