Our host Wade Lightheart was excited to talk about mushrooms with Julian Mitchell because Wade has always been fascinated by mushrooms. Fungi has been used by many cultures in various ways throughout history. Wade points out that the human body is “the closest thing to mushrooms that we can get. This is why antifungals can be so damaging to people’s health.” In this episode, Julian shares how his mushroom harvesting business began in a container of used coffee grounds and has “mushroomed” (pun intended) into a thriving business.
Julian Mitchell is an Australian native who has always been passionate about nature, human performance and sustainability. He is currently completing his Physiotherapy degree and previously worked as a physiotherapist in the English Premier League before his entrepreneurial spirit kicked in, leading to his co-founding Life Cykel, a business focused on creating new mushroom products and technologies to biohack our daily performance.
