Episode 18: The Fungus Olympics Part 2

Welcome back, citizen!

Today, we revisit the exciting Fungus Olympics event and take a short trip around the world to talk to some competitors. This is part 2 of the series, where I speak with the contestants before they’ve run their fungi through the obstacles. In parts 3 and 4, we’ll check in with our competitors to see how their fungi fared. If you missed part 1, check out episode 15 for a rundown of the event.

My guests this time are: 

Dr. Shiv Kale at Virginia Tech
Dr. Daniel Henk at the University of Bath
Dr. David Peris from the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology in Spain
