Barry McGuigan : Given what he is saying about levels of fungi % underfoot. Throwing this out there. Neural activity increases when we walk bare foot and the nervous system highly sensitive in the feet. Connection?

BarDownSnizzzzy19 : Jamie didnt say shit this episode, he clearly got an F in micro biology

Steve Igi : He seems like a cool dude. Also reminds me of Robin Williams.

nicole dileo : Can you pleaseee make a JRE toon for Paul's psilocybin tree hugging trip?!?!?

Jesse K : A mushroom walks into a bar and asks for a drink. The bartender says "sorry we dont serve mushrooms". The mushroom replies "c'mon I'm a fungi".

Rachael Wiseley : As a “marijuana” activist I prefer the terminology “Cannabis” to weed, reefer, pot, etc....... not that there’s anything wrong with any of these words/references. I can relate to Paul being passionate about spreading awareness and educating people. If we want to be taken seriously by “serious people“ then we need to speak to them in a language they can understand/appreciate.

Johnny Walker : "Portobellos have a problem" "All mushrooms should be cooked" "Portobellos in particular should be cooked at high temperatures" "There is an unfortunate group of compounds called Agaratines (Hydrazines)" "Heat-Unstable" "Potentially problematic" "Numbers game" If you look up Agaratines you'll come across the term "genotoxic" meaning it destroys DNA/RNA, which causes 'mutations' and 'cancer' to occur. He's also quoted in another video interview stating that eating a button mushroom (such as a portobello) is like "smoking a cigarette, except the tumors form all over your body and not just the lungs". Nico commented about mafia interests in portobellos, and a quick search says "Chester County's sixty-one mushroom farms are responsible for over 400 million pounds of mushrooms valued at $365 million." So let's say you have a little operation that's putting $300 million in your pocket every year, that's a cash cow you want to keep. And if everybody found out your product is worse than cigarettes, it's gonna put you out of business. The real conspiracy here is that practically everything we're exposed to causes cancer and other problems, and IT'S THAT WAY ON PURPOSE. SIDE NOTES As far as cooking goes, apparently at best you're only destroying 77% of the Agaratine in the mushroom. I've also heard of a doctor several years ago talking about many cancer tumors being a fungal problem, which may have something to do with this as well. I've recently heard that milk/dairy is more responsible for lung cancer than smoking is, and dairy is a $35 billion industry in the US, so imagine how much more THEY have to lose than some PA mafia, and what lengths they might go to protect it.

Pravin Dahal : Mushroom brought me here. I ate a mushroom pizza. Out of hundreds of audiobooks I have, I picked "How to change your mind" while eating the pizza. While listening to the book, mention of Paul Stamets intrigued me. I looked for his Ted talk, and then saw this video as recommendation.

K20C4Sam : Honestly this was amazing. Probably the best episode this year.

Kato Sørensen : I would like to see a round two with Paul. I think his wisdom is worth documenting.

Preston Seran : I am so inspired not just by the message delivered but the fact this is the most agreed upon comment thread ive ever read on YouTube.

Donna Anderson : No one loves animals and nature more than me, but I have never heard a more COMPELLING argument for saving old growth forests --- we will lose the agents of immunity for all life forms. Nothing could be more important. That man is just so cool - Paul. Who cares if anyone ridicules that man, he is so above it and untouchable, his integrity is impeccable.

Brandon Krows : Thank you Paul Stamets. I will never finish a stutterers sentence.

IICaTz : Please have him back on the show.. I thoroughly enjoyed this for 2 days of driving to work.. mind .... blown...

Tom Devine : "Language is code, and we haven't elaborated the code yet to elucidate the concepts that we're trying to articulate" totally parallels Terrence McKenna's concept of "We can move no faster than the evolution of our own language" (the irony coming from these two highly articulate and eloquent individuals), makes you think they're cut from the same cloth, or have convergently evolved the same thought processes toward absolute truth..

Mogwyre Pendelhurst : Just bought some mushroom cultures and how-to book from Paul's site because of this podcast. Gonna grow my own!

David Field : People... you gotta stick around through the very end of this podcast. He drops an insanely mind-blowing story towards the very end around 02:10:00

Benjamin Gentile : 1:45:00 The Portobello mafia is gonna ice this fool!

Procrastinator : Portobello mushrooms contain a cancer causing chemical called agaritine that decomposes into hydrogen peroxide in the liver causing cancer

bubblerings : Maybe the Fruit... of the Tree of Knowledge... was a fungus or mushroom growing on it.

Mike McKevitt : Joe, you didn't read that about weeds affect on REM sleep. We learned that together during the Matthew Walker podcast.

Soco Soco : If I eat his hat will I trip face?

Jo Po : This guy eats so many mushrooms, when he goes to the bathroom he must have toadstools.

Luke : As a person who suffers from severe neuropathy, I can not express enough how much this means to me. Lions main has helped me so much! No big pharma focused on profits, not cures! I grow it myself and has been better than anything else. I was on 5+ different meds every day which I now only need to take rarely. Before this, I could not walk without being drugged up on all these meds 24/7 doctors told me were the only solution for me to function. I just wish one-day other neurogenesis promoting substances (such as psilocybin) could be formulated into a cure and be prescribed.

James Pierce : So the ability to communicate information back into the mycelium network, the ability to socialize, has been conserved by natural selection even after our divergence from fungi ~650 million years ago. And Jordan Peterson says that the propensity to organize the world in hierarchical structure has been conserved by natural selection since our divergence from lobsters ~350 million years ago. Hmm. Interesting timeline. Is the psychedelic experience the result of a mushroom trying to convey information back through the mycelium network that you still have the genetic scaffolding for?

tIGERtriumph : In my case I went through immense childhood trauma that led to severe stutter, but i only stutter when i speak my native language (Urdu) and never (small amount) stutter when i speak English or sing or talk to animals. I guess I need to find my tree...

Fair game : its clear that the normal view on things/life is skewed. Humanity has guarded itself from "drugs" to the point that things that were originally from the earth and were used for thousands of years by the individuals before us that we cant use these items as a benefit. There are numerous stories of drugs helping individuals and I understand that, that doesn't mean they should be legal, but they should be used as they were before. If we stop looking at drugs as a problem but as a tool we can learn so many things. Us as humans have absolutely no idea what the universe actually holds and determining that an item cant be used to explore it is absolutely holding us back as a species.

Mr. Grieves : Obviously fungi are highly intelligent! One of them sat on Pauls head and now controls him!

Amy Kinney : Holy shit. I couldn't force myself to stop watching this interview and now I'm still up at 4:26 am. Love this guy!

healthdoc : Love the purple gill-like curtains behind him 🍄

lucabrazi36 : I started microdosing a yr ago for depression. .25 grams gave me unbelievable focus. I hope they legalize it here in CA soon.

Brian Perkins : I could listen to Paul Stamets all day long

Tony Duchars : Stamets round 2?
