Mushrooms that smell? Fungi can be pungent, provocative, and at times irresistible. While we might not always recognize it, we're in constant chemical communication with the world around us through olfaction. For those with the senses to discern them, aromas, perfumes, stinks, and stenches can all convey useful information. Some scents are warnings, and others are deterrents, but the most alluring are expert portraits of our animal fascinations, honed through evolution to attract, captivate, and compel. In this episode, we stop to smell the Russulas – examining the fascinating fragrances of Kingdom Fungi, with the help of Michael Hathaway, Merlin Sheldrake, and Anicka Yi. – – – For musical credits, citations, and the Mushroom Smelling Wheel, https://www.futureecologies.net/listen/fe-3-6-making-sense-of-each-other (click here.) https://www.patreon.com/futureecologies (Support the show and join our Patreon community) Cover artwork by https://www.leyatess.com/ (Leya Tess) Support this podcast
