Britt is the founder, Publisher, and Editor-in-Chief of the mycology journal Fungi. Britt has worked academically (and played very amateurishly) as a mycologist his entire career, writing scientifically for many research journals, popular science magazines, and books, most recently Mushrooms and Macrofungi of Ohio and Midwestern States (2012) by The Ohio State University Press. He has served as an editor for mycological and entomological research journals, and mushroom guide books. A popular evangelizer on all things fungal, Britt has been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered, National Geographic Magazine, PBS’s NOVA television program, and in 2016 was made Executive Director of the Telluride Mushroom Festival. He is the co-editor of MycoEpithalamia: Mushroom Wedding Poems (The FUNGI Press, 2016).

At the SCMF Wild Mushroom Foray, Brit will be giving a talk called Mushroom Stones to Stoned Apes: What We Know and What We Don’t About the Origins of Fungi
