Paul begins with a brief discussion about the rose order and the massive rose sub-class. They continue to discuss all of the sub classes which include most fruits, legumes and some berries & nuts. The similarities in the bloom, for example, of the strawberry and the antique roses as well as shared diseases such as fire blight.
Paul admits to his issue with shaking or stick harvesting(beating) trees to release the fruits as a personal attach on these innocent plants. Further discussion regarding thorn-cane fruits and the destruction that occurs when hand harvesting and breaking limbs that become stuck in clothing allowed Paul to reconsider.
Paul notes the available dried fruit on many berry shrubs in the winter as a wonderful source of food as well as ease of propagation.
They move to stonecrops as well as under story acid loving ornamentals like coral bells. They discuss cyanide found in some fruit seeds and it’s toxic characteristics if not cooked.

Hi Anton. I fixed the audio file link. You apparently found an old podcast publishing error. It seems that this episode page was prepared, but was never released to the podcast feed. So we have posts pointing to 2 different Episode 371.
NOTE: we found the original audio in the Botany in a Day Podcast Gob. So if anyone has previously purchased the gob, you do have all of the episodes.
As for apps to help sort/categorize things for listening... I haven't found any that are good for that. I use Overcast on my iPhone. But I rarely do searching inside the app itself except to find podcast feeds.
However, the podcast itself is actually a website https://richsoil.com/permaculture/. You can search there for topics. Its structured like a blog, with one post being one episode.
Pro-Tip: You could also search on google for it by restricting the site search. i.e. Type this into the google box. "site:richsoil.com/permaculture/ botany in a day". The "site:" gives google a hint to limit your search to just that site.
