Going On A Mushroom Hunt


Mushrooms can’t run, but if you go hunting for them, it certainly seems like they’re hiding. 

On Wednesday's Up to Date, we speak with a few mushroom hunters about their craft and how they find the best fungus among us. 


  • Langdon Cook, author of The Mushroom Hunters On the Trail of an Underground America
  • Theresa Maybriar, local mushroom hunter and author of Morel Hunting: How to Find, Preserve, Care for, and Prepare the Wild Mushrooms Paperback 
Up To Date Food & Drink
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
