Episode 4: The Taming of the Shroom

For anyone who has wondered, “How Do Wild Mushrooms Get Domesticated?”

Please note: This episode is best enjoyed with headphones, on low volume.

Episode 2 tells only part of the story of mushroom cultivation. Specialty mushroom growers use different substrates and grow mushrooms completely unrelated to Agaricus bisporus. Izzie talks with Chris Bailey and Justin Reyes, two employees of Gourmet Mushrooms – the company that led the push to domesticate new edible fungi. From wine country to a Bali forest to a Michigan farm with a long-awaited surprise, Gourmet Mushrooms is leading the way to more interesting mushroom cuisine.
