Ep. 164: Which Fungi - The Edibles, The Deadlies, The Wild Ones (feat. Elise Rothman)
Listen now
Hi there…welcome to Mushroom Hour. Today on Mushroom Hour we are graced by the presence of author, researcher, and mycological maven Elise Rothman. Coming to us from her hideaway in the woods and wilds of France, Elise is here to share her newest creation – a set of mushroom identification card decks that have been lovingly crafted with beautiful artwork and thoughtful graphic design elements that will help mycologists and ordinary folk alike to identify common edibles, deadly toxic and psychoactive mushrooms in North America and Europe. And I’m excited to learn everything about this project including a brand-new form of mushroom identification methodology.    TOPICS:    Entering St. George’s Fairy Ring   Mushroom Identification Cards   Deck 1 – The Edibles   Collaborating with Scientific Advisors    Deck 2 – The Deadlies   Artistic License and Composite Mushroom Artwork   Features of a Mushroom   The Twins – Separating Edible from Deadly   What is a “Lookalike”?   A New Methodology for Mushroom Identification   Deck 3 – The Wild Ones   Rethinking Identification with Psychoactives   Mushrooms in France   Breaking the Publishing Mold   EPISODE RESOURCES:    WhichFungi website: http://whichfungi.com/   WhichFungi IG: https://www.instagram.com/p/CufBjBDMxwL/   Russula cyanoxantha: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russula_cyanoxantha
