On episode 1035 of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Joe is joined by mycologist, author and advocate of bioremediation and medicinal fungi, Paul Stamets. In this informational, educational and utterly fascinating melding of the minds, the two trek through some remarkable topic points, including but not limited to: the amount of known mushroom species; Paul’s hat being made from mushroom leather; the fear of mushrooms; mushroom sentience; the known primates of Earth that consume mushrooms; how humans are descendants of fungi; how fungi communicates through a mycelium network; mushrooms as the architects for existence; a 440 million year old fungus as the earliest land-based life form ever discovered; hopes of one day communicating with mushrooms and their mycelium networks; how mushrooms can help save the world; and how mushrooms have changed Paul’s life forever.
