With another year passing us by, I feel like the discussion of insects as a food source in the U.S. has not gained as much traction as I would like to see. Overall, there are not many large scale projects that are aimed at insect farming and it seems like there is a lot of potential to be had in working to better understand the role of insects in the food industry. I designed this podcast to be aimed at the everyday listener who has probably not thought about insects as anything but pests for a long time. I hope with the imaginative word usage and interesting words from other science major students, that I could spark a conversation about insect foods in the household and maybe sway some people opinions when it comes to consuming insects.
Thank you to kvgarlic for the background ambiance.
