Season 2

Episode 55: Mushroom Music

This is episode number 2 in Arkansas, but very different from the frog catching.  In NW Arkansas where the beautiful Ozarks rule — a couple of hippies started growing shiitakes in the forest some 20 odd years ago.  Today, they are harvesting hundreds of thousands of pounds of the Japanese mushrooms off of logs.  It’s an impressive operation that only improves when you meet the owners Carole Anne and Curly… who both happen to kick it on the banjo.
