On this episode of the Go Gather Wild Podcast we have Bill O’Dea of mushroomstuff.com. He is one of Ireland’s foremost mushroom experts and regularly brings groups out on foraging trips throughout Killruddery House in Wicklow, Ireland.
Throughout the show we talk about beginner mushroom tips, mushroom festivals, the microbiome, surprising uses of mushrooms like a lion’s mane tea and lots more.
Bill O’Dea is a dedicated Irish mycologist who has a passion for mushrooms like no other. Bill studied fungi at University College Dublin and has taken groups on mushroom hunts both at home and abroad since 1996. He has appeared on national news and his mushroom hunts have even been named in the top 10 events of the year by the Sunday Business Post. Bill O’Dea has shared his expert knowledge with everyone from chefs to universities and he is now kindly sharing it with us at Go Gather Wild.
