  2. I love all of your shows, but am leaving my first comment ever because I just really like this guy. He is so genuine and tuned in, and his passion and knowledge are evident. I had no idea mushrooms were so powerful. I live in Ireland surrounded by several rich and diverse forests. I’ve always wanted to forage mushrooms but didn’t know where to get the knowledge to do it safely. I just signed up for Mushroom Academy and hope that this is one thing I can gain from it. I’m really looking forward to trying the Lion’s Mane and learning more! Thanks Tero, Shawn and Jade- keep up the good work. ❤

  3. The one food that I’m allergic to is mushrooms lol. Any alternatives for me?
