Earth Day: Mycelium Running
If your heart goes pit-a-pat when you hear the phrase "mycelial mat," these presentations from mycological entrepreneur Paul Stamets, taken from the Agricultural Innovations podcasts of 2007, are for you.
The Big Picture (hat tip) put up two short, much more focused and, though I say it, investor-friendly TED talks from Stamets today, but I think the following long-form podcasts give a greater sense of the cornucopia of blazing insight that Stamets provides. Listen to these instead of NPR!

I think it's fascinating and a sign of health and hope that Stamets's ideas are starting to get take root (or.... extrude mycelia). And like fungi, his ideas are to be found in some odd places.
