About the event

Writer and explorer Justin Fornal takes listeners on his most exciting international expeditions to learn how humans around the globe interact with the world's most provocative plants.  Where in Ethiopia did humans first start drinking coffee? What narcotic plant is considered a national pastime in Yemen?  Where are frankincense and myrrh still gathered as they were since biblical times? What plant-derived textile is believed to be a magnet for ghosts in Uganda? What root is still sought after by Mississippi blues musicians for its mystical virality, and finally, what tree in Chester, Connecticut, did witches once use to make their magical broomsticks? Find out these answers when Justin Fornal presents 'Adventures in Ethnobotany'!
