Episode 23 is a special interview with Mario Ceballos. This is a great episode if you want to learn more about intersectionality, POC (people of color) fungi community, fungi and culture, indigenous mushroom use, and so mush more.
Mario Ceballos is a Chicanx from Kumeyaay territory also known as San Diego CA. Mario is a stay at home parent of three children, and when they aren't braiding hair or making lunch they are thinking of ways to heal their community. Whether that be by using medicinal Fungi, direct action, smashing the patriarchy, or painting rocks with kids. Mario advocates for all marginalized people and looks to indigenous ways and models for organizing community and cultivating resilience. Growing up in a " border town", Mario has been forced to navigate two different worlds, with family on both sides of the border, they have first hand experience with the devastating effects of colonization and the re-traumatization of an increasingly militarized border. In a attempt to mitigate appropriation of traditional medicine and to increase access and representation for people of color, Mario created the POC Fungi Community.
