We are joined by Olga Tzogas, the founder of Smugtown Mushrooms, for an in depth discussion taking us all the way from Rochester, NY to mountains of Greece. Olga shares her journey of starting a community based mushroom business that has become a hub for much more than mycology, and how the cultivation of community and fungi led her to begin organizing mushroom festivals and gatherings. She provides insights and tips into quality event organization that allows attendees to connect with nature and each other, as well as re-imagine what a healthy society could look like and take steps to create it. Our conversation also gets into Olga's Greek roots and her experience of reconnecting with the culture through the lens of fungi, which eventually led her to host mushroom based tours of the country.
