Who Run The World? (Fungi)
Play • 35 min
Next time you take a sip of your favourite microbrew and tear off a chunk of baguette piled with cheese you might wanna toast to fungi.  Fungus really are among us. From high-priced morels to mold to the medicinal promise of magic mushrooms, fungi were here before us and they'll be here long after we're dust.   They could live without us, but could we live without them? Would we want to?  Listen to the story of a college kid who ran up against a shotgun wielding morel hunter on his quest to find the best patch of mushrooms, find out what pricey mushroom smells like  sweat and semen, and a mycologist who things we have a lot to learn from the lowly mushroom.
