Fundrive: Studying, and Eating, Insects

On Halloween night, Terra Informa went LIVE for our Fundrive episode and helped the station surpass its $105,000 fundraising goal! Thanks so much to our amazing donors! If you missed hearing the show live, or just loved it so much that you need to listen to it again, we’ve got you covered. And the best part? This episode is all about bugs.

First, we chatted with University of Alberta palaeontology grad student Emily Moore about giant Mesozoic Era insects. Then we jump from the distant past into the future, where crickets could become a significant source of sustainable protein. We spoke with Silvia Ronzani and Claudio La Rocca of Camola Sustainable Bakery, who use cricket flour in all their baked goods including their delicious bugscotti. Grossed out? Intrigued?
