Recent Radical Mycology Book Reviews, Interviews, and Webinars
The last couple months have been quite busy on the Radical Mycology front. With planning the just-launched Radical Mycology Book tour and the upcoming Radical Mycology Convergence, its been a go trying to post all the reviews that the book Radical Mycology has been getting over the last few months. So, here they all are in one convenient post!
- Good Magazine did an interview with Peter when the book first came out here.
- The Survival Podcast had Peter back a second time to talk about several intermediate cultivation practices with fungi here.
- The Sustainable World Radio podcast got into a range of topics with Peter from the book here.
- Diego Footer of the Permaculture Voices podcast did a great interview with Peter about a range of fungal cultivation practices and low-impact integration practices and their relationship to permaculture / regenerative agriculture.
- Ayana Young of the Unlearn & Rewild podcast held a deep conversation with Peter about the cultural and ecopsychological impacts that fungi have had on humans since pre-history. Though Peter tends to do interviews about the practical implications of working with fungi, these more subtle fungal roles in our collective history are some of the most inspiring topics for him and Ayana pulled out some amazing questions to help do the topic justice.
- The New Food Economy online magazine did a great interview and write-up on the book here.
The other month, Peter also did two webinars on the books topics: one on Seeing Fungi (fungal biology and ecology) and the other on Working With Fungi (the historical, contemporary, and future impacts of foraging for, consuming, and cultivating fungi). These info-packed videos give a solid overview of the many topics and skills that are thoroughly detailed in the book, much of which is not represented anywhere else on the internet today. Check them out below.
- The Australian permaculture school and blog Milkwood wrote up a great piece on the book here.
- The New Jersey Mycological Association did a review here.
- The Practical Herbalist podcast and blog did a review here and part 1 of an interview with Peter here.
- Lastly, The Willamette Weekly in Portland, Oregon named Peter “Best Mushroom King” in their annual “Best of Portland” issue. Fungi.. keeping Portland Weird.
