Freethinking with Laura Dodsworth

Fergus the Forager - wild food experimentalist

July 26, 2020

Wild food experimentalist, course faciliator, forager, the ever-curious Fergus Drennan, aka Fergus The Forager, has been gathering and learning about wild plants, seaweeds, and fungi for over 40 years. Badger pizzle, a mermaid’s purse and squirrel milk featured on the menu of this Freethinking podcast.


His freethinking recommendation:

Think outside the box and consider the sexy wonders of seaweed. It really is sexy stuff! A red seaweed (found in a rare fossil record) dated to 1,200 million years ago, is understood to be the first sexually-reproducing organism EVER; whether or not the experience was also orgasmic, nobody knows.
