In the Pacific Northwest, there is a large group of underground mushroom foragers who make their living gathering mushrooms for high-end restaurants. Our guest tonight is Langdon Cook, writer and journalist, who got to know some of the key people in this interesting subculture that scours the deep woods from Alaska to California searching for the mother lode of chanterelles, porcinis, matsutake and even truffles. Tune in and listen to Langdon discuss his unique and fascinating book The Mushroom Hunters: On The Trail Of An Underground America.

Inquiry welcomes back writer and historian Lincoln Paine to continue our discussion about his monumental history The Sea And Civilization: A Maritime History Of The World. Tonight, we talk about Europe in the 15th and 16th Centuries, a time of exploration, conquest of the Indian Ocean and the “New World”, and changes in how countries thought about the ocean. This was the time of Prince Henry, Columbus, the spice trade and the escalation of the slave trade. If you love the sea and ships, don’t miss this show!
