Ep 178 You May Think You’re Clean, But You’re No Cockroach

This month is the traditional time to celebrate Halloween, so we have a creepy crawly podcast for you this time around.  Maia Holmes from The Bug Zoo at Colorado State University sits down to talk turkey with us.  Oops – that’s next month.  Maia sits down with us to talk about all things insects, what the Bug Zoo does, and why these poor critters are completely undeserving of the reputation they have and the reaction they engender.  She reminds us that it’s not just the bees that can be a friend to man.  After all, if you think Halloween is scary, just try thinking about life would be like without little scavengers picking up all of our crumbs.  The Horror!

We would just like to note that for this one, we lasted an hour without visibly scratching in the little room of a thousand bugs. We hope you’re proud.

And thanks again, Franck.  You’re a prince among men.  And we're not even standing in the Weed Lab when we say that.
