Asdfghffgghh ,

Fungi Fever!

I love this podcast and listen to it daily. It’s giving me so much inspiration to continue to dive into the wonderful world of fungi! I’m trying to personally increase my knowledge on mushrooms and fungi so that I can incorporate it more into my science curriculum at the high school I teach at. My goal would be to have an elective science class that’s just about fungi! Maybe someway I’ll be a guest on your show (ultimate dream)!

Whathefungus ,

A Myco Must

This is one of the few mushroom podcasts out there, older than most and of extremely high caliber. These folks are elevating mycology on many levels so give it a try!

The Closet Psychonaut ,

Great episode and conversation!

Your show with Ian was stellar. The conversations you guys were getting into toward the end regarding dosing, perceptual/sub perceptual, placebo etc. Super awesome! Thank you for having him on!
