Teen Skepchick Interviews: Bug Girl
This post is part of the Teen Skepchick Interviews series, where TS writers talk with amazing women scientists and skeptics about life, the universe, and everything.
Every interview with entomologist and blogger Bug Girl I’ve ever heard had me fascinated, laughing, and leaving with a lot more knowledge (and not just about bugs) than I had going in. This interview is no exception. We talk about everything from careers in entomology and how entomology is fundamental to biological science in general to the bugs being everywhere, including in food and lipstick. And of course, we discuss why people are so freaked out about bugs (and why, in general, they really don’t need to be). Plus, Bug Girl shares an awesome recipe for John the Baptist bread, substituting crickets for locusts, which sounds surprisingly delicious.
