Wayne State University is hosting a series of conversations about the benefits of eating bugs. It’s part of the university’s “Knowledge on Tap” series. On Tuesday, the university will hold its latest installment called “Eating Insects: Exploring the Culture of Bugs as Food” at HopCat Detroit. Julie Lesnik is an assistant professor in Wayne State’s Department of Anthropology. She told WDET’s Eli Newman that for most people around the world, eating insects is not that unusual.
