I’m camera shy, but I’ve been popping up in various media these days, mostly giving laid back, image-rich talks to welcome people into the fungusy world that you and I love. Thought you might be curious.
My popular lecture for Cornell’s Summer Lecture Series is available via a CyberTower webcast (too bad you can’t hear the great audience, who gamely answered my questions and laughed at my jokes).
A fun new radio interview with Jenny Nelson for Science Cabaret on Air. I gave a Sci Cab presentation a few years ago with Kent Loeffler and Tim Merrick. That is not online (you just had to be there, drinking beer):
My friend Dr. Tim Baroni and I recently gave a tag team presentation as a SUNY Cortland Community Roundtable which is now up as a webcast:
I joined a live discussion of fungi (and how horrible and creepy they are!) on Connecticut Public Radio’s Colin McEnroe Show (Jan 11 2010):

Belomo 10x Triplet (not pictured): cheap, very good, sturdy. This is the one I bought for my son. Not a fan of the stiff and bulky lanyard though.
Meiji Triplet, 10X: Also very good, but not so cheap, and too small a loop for attaching to your lanyard. I bought this for me, but I don’t think it’s significantly better than the Bellomo.
Iwamoto Wide Lens Triplet, 20X: Nice! Big glass for such a high mag lens. Lets in the light so you can use it while crouching by a log in a hemlock grove.
