Glutton for Punishment

Glutton for Punishment

Episode Description

Morel Mushrooms

Dirty, sweaty and bug-ridden, Bob hikes into a remote swath of burnt forest in northern British Columbia in search of morels – one of the most valuable and sought after mush¬rooms in the world. Morel pickers are a wild and rugged breed. They live in the bush – cov¬ered in soot from head to toe – and fiercely guarding their picking spots. It’s an intense competi¬tion to see who can make it out of the woods with the heaviest load, which will yield the highest cash return. Can Bob, our city slicker, take on some of BC’s fastest, strongest pickers while surviving in the wilderness amongst black bears and burrowing ticks?
