Original Transcript:

Dear O,

This episode is brought to you by Kolabtree; That's K-O-L-A-B-T-R-E-E. Kolabtree.

Do you have a science or business project for which you need help from a freelance agent? Are you a freelancing scientist or businessperson? Kolabtree.com is an online platform that connects the freelance agent to the project owner in need of help. It's free to sign up and peruse through the different professionals or projects, discuss with potential clients about project needs, and work out timelines on one platform. Freelance agents include PhD-qualified experts from institutions like MIT, Stanford, Harvard, and Oxford who offer services like scientific consulting, data analysis, writing, and editing. The experts specialize in a variety of subject matters ranging from life sciences to engineering. If you are a project owner, you save time by finding the right resources for your project on one easy platform.

I tried the platform out and all I did was sign in through LinkedIn, uploaded my resume, and was quickly looking through the food science projects. Writing proposals are straightforward and I was able to talk to one of their project managers for assistance on any issue. Take a look at Kolabtree.com, that's K-O-L-A-B-T-R-E-E.

When I was working at Ghirardelli, I was telling fungal puns to everyone in the R&D lab. This would be a weekly or monthly thing. One day, the R&D lab had a potluck and one of the chocolate technologists, one of my supervisors, brought mushroom wraps. I commented about the wraps, and she challenges me to come up with a mushroom rap. That was 2015. I still have yet to create a rap. So, wish me luck as I attempt my first random mushroom rap:

A mushroom rap, not a wrap you eat, but a rap layin' down a beat.
Not a beet from underground, but a beat like the sound.
How you lichen 'em now?

You hear "knock, knock" on the door.
You ask who's there as you're on the floor.
You hear "Mush" as someone would say.
You ask "Mush who?, but someone mush-room away.
How you lichen 'em now?

The fungi and the fungal
Lichened each other more than pals
That the fungi proposed with a fairy ring
But only wood ear would hear them sing.
How you lichen 'em now?

Don't mess with shrooms.
'Cause if you assume to consume,
We will presume your doom,
And put you in that quiet room.
In trouble with blewit.
Well, shit-take.
Gonna call their mother, ma-tsutake.
It's mai-take on this boletale.
Let me finish to the morel while you drink some ale.
Don't truffle with them.
Especially, when you say stem.
'Cause they'll stalk you.
Pointin' their revolvas too.
Open oak doors with enoki.
Greetings by hyphae.
Sayin' amatoxin.
