Mushrooms are many things to many people. From a side dish to a renewable energy source to an illegal drug that’s being used to treat anxiety in the terminally ill, fungi have passionate followers. KQED’s Forum talks food, medicine, culture and the science of mushrooms with food writer Eugenia Bone.
