Darren Le Baron, aka Darren Springer, joins us to talk about his work in psychedelic education around the globe. We ran into his glowing presence at Telluride Mushroom Fest, in the midst of his spore-spreading travels. Specifically, Darren teaches permaculture, mushroom cultivation, mycology, and Pan-African history of mushrooms & other psychedelics.
We discuss his nomadic education and research, how fungi are a fundamental natural technology, the life-giving roles of decomposition, and personal use of mushrooms.
