  • David Chang Discusses Edible Bugs, Robot-Made Pizza, and the Future of Food -- The New Yorker (30 October 2021)

  • Edible Insects -- PBS Nova (53:28 min., 20 October 2021)
    • "From crunchy crickets to nutty fly grubs, NOVA takes a tasty look at insect foods and how they could benefit our health and our warming planet. From Thailand to Texas, insect farmers are showing how the tiny critters stack up as an environmentally friendly alternative to beef protein and can, pound for pound, deliver better nutritional value than the finest steak. But will Americans overcome the “ick” factor and share the appetite of many cultures around the world for insect feasts?" (Premiered October 20, 2021)
