We set our clocks to geological time and leap across eras of prehistory to learn about the evolutionary history of plants and we reach our destination in the Paleozoic to explore a world ruled by monolithic 8-meter tall mushrooms called "Prototaxites" with our guide, Stanford Professor Dr. Kevin Boyce!
We take a journey into a realm of the fantastical and ride currents of imagination as biological forms across the kingdoms of life converge into stunningly beautiful works of art - courtesy of artist and biophiliac Jon Ching!
We follow hyphal threads of molds and mushrooms that lace together art, science and society as we explore the origins of biotechnology, mycelium materials and more with microbiology expert Professor Vera Meyer of Technische Universität Berlin!
From forests overflowing with chanterelles to the complex networks of commercial mushroom purveyors, we explore what it means to bring wild mushrooms from forest to table guided by a pioneer in the American wild mushroom business and founder of Wine Forest Wild Foods, Connie Green!
We descend into intricate universes fossilized in amber to learn about ancient insects and fungi with one of the world's leading experts in working with amber fossils (and one of the main inspirations behind Jurassic Park), paleontologist, entomologist and explorer George Poinar Jr. PhD!
We give our humble attention and respect to traditional ecological knowledge systems of first nation peoples to understand language, culture and land practices informed by deep ecological wisdom with researcher and author Professor Nancy Turner!
We are on a quest to the Peay Lab at Stanford University chasing a 'roots-to-biomes' understanding of plant-microbe symbiosis, along the way we gain a deeper understanding of fungal roles in community assembly and the complexities of mycorrhizal relationships with ecologist and mycophile Dr. Kabir Peay!
We adventure through the Oregon woods, with truffle dogs leading the way, as we tune in to messages of BIPOC representation in natural spaces, practical ways we can uplift those around us and emerging conversations around psychedelics with forager, wildcraft educator and dog expert Elan Hagens!
It's all about reading biological patterns as Dr. Andrew Wilson takes us into the world of fungal systematics, high throughput DNA sequencing and more in his efforts to understand fungal diversity, biogeography and evolutionary history of his favorite mushrooms!
From the forests of Olympia, Washington we join forager, chef and myco-nerd Graham Steinruck as he unpacks the regulatory frameworks growing up around commercial mushroom foraging and reveals some mouth-watering, culinary mushroom secrets!
