Vincent Vitale joins us from Austin, TX as part of Aspire Food Group which produces Aketta, edible crickets. They raise food-grade crickets on a commercial scale, and actively work to normalize the consumption of insects in the western world. Additionally, they commercially farm palm weevil larvae and run a program which empowers peri-rural farmers to raise palm weevils in Ghana.
I sample a few crickets while Savanna and I discuss the possible future of food in a world where resources are becoming limited.
