Description

I am so excited about today’s conversation! Today’s episode is about exploring the magical world of mushrooms and fungi with Giuliana Furci. Giuliana is foundress and executive director of the Fungi Foundation. 


 


She is a Harvard University Associate, Dame of the Order of the Star of Italy, Co-Chair of the IUCN Fungal Conservation Committee, and author of several titles including a series of field guides to Chilean fungi and chapters in publications such as Fantastic Fungi. 


 


Giuliana has worked in the non-profit sector for the last 17 years and has held consulting positions in U.S. philanthropic foundations as well as full-time positions in international marine conservation NGOs, and Chilean environmental NGOs.


 


We talk about the following and so much more: 


✅ How her path from childhood to undergrad to adulthood brought her to the world of fungi 


✅ What mushrooms are and why they are called fungi 


✅ The dominant types of mushrooms 


✅ Why mushrooms are so important to our ecosystem


✅ Why mushrooms, which have so many benefits, have been so understudied and why there is such a renewed interest in mushrooms today 


✅ How mushrooms affect us from a health perspective


✅ Her experience with other types of mushrooms that have gained popularity and some of her discoveries in this space 


 


It was a pure delight to connect with Guliana and I think you’ll enjoy this conversation tremendously.
