Listen in as Peter McCoy unpacks the importance of fungi in all past and present humans cultures
I rap with Peter McCoy about the future of Fungi.
The importance of fungi in all past and present humans cultures
The ecological roles of fungi and the symbioses they form with everything
Prospecting about increasing awareness around fungi and what the future of human-relations will look like
When to eat a bowl of cherries, ayurvedically-speaking
The deal with ghee, anti-inflammation and cows
Peter McCoy speaks on behalf of the fungi, the most overlooked and misrepresented organisms in the web of life. A self-taught mycologist with 15 years of accumulated study and experience, Peter is an original founder of Radical Mycology, a grassroots organization and movement that teaches the skills needed to work with mushrooms and other fungi for personal, societal, and ecological resilience.
Peter is the lead cultivation expert for the Amazon Mycorenewal Project and Open Source Ecology and the primary author behind Radical Mycology, a nearly 700-page book on accessible mycology and mushroom cultivation. Apart from his work with fungi, he is also a community organizer, street medic, zinester, artist, musician, lecturer, and teacher.
