The Amazon: What Everyone Needs to Know with Mark Plotkin

May 4, 2020

The Amazon is a land of complex history full of mysteries and wonder. It covers a land area roughly the size of the continental US and the Amazon River contains more types of fish than all of the rivers in Europe combined. In this episode, I speak with trailblazing ethnobotanist, Dr. Mark Plotkin, about everything from piranhas, curare poison, ayahuasca, and agriculture in the Amazon. He shares highlights from his latest book, The Amazon - What Everyone Needs to Know. This is one episode of Foodie Pharmacology that you don’t want to miss!
