Mycelium salvation?

Paul StametsPaul Stamets is an interesting guy with a genuine desire and belief that he can help heal some of the damage humans have done to the Earth with the help of mushrooms.

If you don't have time to read one of his 6 books, then I suggest a recent interview by Frank Aragona as an excellent introduction to the wonderful world of mushrooms.

This is an exceptional 2 part interview from Frank's podcast archive at, which is totally free of charge. You'll learn how Paul got started with mushrooms, his work with the government and petro-chemical industry, and a great breakdown of the history and evolution of mushrooms and how important they are for survival.

I've heard several podcasts lately and this one really charged me up like no other. Frank posed some great questions and Paul took the ball and ran a few enthusiastic miles with it.
