This year, as a special gift to AMP listeners, I decided to rerelease the epic Christmas story told by Tero Isokauppila on my podcast. I apologize if this corrupts your hallmark view of Ol' Saint Nick, but there is substantial evidence that the myth of Santa Claus originated from Fly Agaric mushroom shamans. Tero is an author, medicinal mushroom expert and enthusiast, and founder of the mushroom focused supplement brand, Four Sigmatic. If you have ever wanted to understand what makes mushrooms so powerful as a healing superfood and more, this episode is for you. It’s also for you if you have considered launching a new business... or if you have ever heard of Christmas. Happy Holidays!
