One of the first signs of life after the atomic bomb fell on Hiroshima in 1945 was a mushroom called the matsutake. Professor Anna Tsing takes us on a dive into the extraordinary life of this mushroom. What can we learn from the matsutake about life, vulnerability and capitalism?

Anna Tsing is a professor of anthropology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. The Mushroom at the End of the World, her most recent, award-winning book, traces the commodity chain of the matsutake mushroom.
