Ben Kendrick is one of the leading mushroom enthusiasts on Twitter (@FungiwithBengi), and in this episode we're lucky enough to have him on to blow our minds with some fungal facts that are out of this world. Some of the topics we touch on are how dangerous it is to forage your own mushrooms, porous mushrooms as opposed to gilled mushrooms, and those weird little things that we call lichen.
