Is Eating Insects the Future of Food? — Robert Allen (Founder of “Little Herds”)

I talk with edible insect aficionado, Robert Nathan Allen, who is working to revolutionize the world of food… by getting humans to eat more insects. While a bit hard to swallow, advocates for this seemingly bizarre movement say that edible insects are both environmentally sustainable, economically feasible, and highly nutritious. This talk digs into these claims, the history of eating insects, the potential role it could play in feeding the world… and how to start using them in your own kitchen!

Robert Nathan Allen is an entomophagy (insect eating) advocate who founded and heads the non-profit, whose mission is to promote the use of insects as an environmentally and economically sustainable source of human food and nutrition.
