Ep. 1: Chaga - Potent Medicinal Mushroom from the Arctic Reaches (feat. Gavin Escolar)

On this episode of Mushroom Hour, we have the joy of interviewing Mr. Gavin Escolar of The Chaga Co. This interview was conducted inside the Chaga Co. Test Cafe in San Francisco.During our chat we journey to the northern reaches of the world and explore the increasingly popular medicinal mushroom known as Chaga (Inonotus obliquus). What is it? Where does it come from? What can it do for our health? How can we use it mindfully and sustainably? We also step into Gavin's shoes as an entrepreneur who has to balance ethical sourcing, innovation, and maintaining the integrity of this medicinal fungi as he offers his products to the world. Finally, we talk about the importance of getting out into nature (foraging!) and how exploring your passion for mushrooms can change your mind, body and spirit for the better.Thanks for listening and Mush Love!Directed, Recorded, Produced by: Mushroom HourMusic by: Ancient BabyEpisode ResourcesThe Chaga Co: https://www.thechagaco.com/Chaga Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inonotus_obliquusChaga Research Articles: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Inonotus+obliquus
