23: Baltics, Balkans, and Shrooms? Yum! (Part 1 of 2)

In this new episode (recorded September 2020, when it was still warm enough in the northeastern U.S. to record outdoors!), Dean and Tom repel giant squirrels while they ruminate (or perhaps shroom-inate?) on mushroom-picking in the Baltics. Plus, they dig into differences between the Baltics and the Balkans (hint: start by looking to the ends of one’s “Bal”s). Mycologists and non-mycologists alike, enjoy!
