Episode 03: Beer!

Welcome back to Fungi Town! 

This week, we explore one of my favorite topics – beer! What has beer got to do with fungi? Everything! In fact, you can’t make beer without it. Join me as I talk to two beer brewing experts and find out what role our fungal friends have in making the most consumed alcoholic beverage on the planet. (But you don’t have to be 21 to listen.) Then, I’ll travel to Walton County to visit with a healthcare professional who will help me de-funk a fungi myth.
