Description

We're back with another shorter, cleaner, edition of an Ologies classic. Today it's all the way back from 2018:  INSECTS, just straight up buuuugs. Quite likely Alie's favorite subject ever with an ologist who quite likely also dramatically shifted her life. That would be Lila Higgins, with passion more powerful than a Goliath Beetle's "especially large slicey mandibles." We cover a lot of ground, from dinosaur bugs to why wasps are so problematic, and even why it's totally fine to kiss a cockroach.

Lila Higgins' book, 'Wild LA: Explore the Amazing Nature in and Around Los Angeles'
