Storyline

Renowned mycologist and mushroom pioneer, Paul Stamets, harnesses the power of fungi to fight the planet's leading problems. Decades of research have brought him to the conclusion that mushrooms can save the world, one step at a time. From developing cures for cancer to destroying toxic radioactive waste, Stamets believes that much of the mycological field is still relatively untapped. With only 10% of the world's mushrooms identified, he continues to seek out new species in hopes that his research can continue to cultivate edible, medicinal, and antiviral uses of mushrooms to sustain our future.
