In this video, I sat down with Dan de Lion of

His herbal and fungal knowledge is astounding and we speak a little bit about the mechanisms of action that medicinal mushrooms exhibit.

He mentions growing up eating crap like hot pockets and speaks on which mushrooms he’s consumed in order to detox his “past”.

We also try to de-mystify the concept of “coincidences” with this fun little quote, The physicist Percy Williams Bridgman supposedly said:

“A coincidence is what you have left over when you apply a bad theory.”

I hope you enjoy this discussion I had with Dan de Lion.
