Arthro-Pod EP 50 Chatting about Cicadas

Howdy, howdy bug lovers! On today's show, the Arthro-Pod gang discuss one of the insect world's most musically inclined representatives, the cicada! We go in to detail about what makes cicadas special compared to other true bugs, when they evolved, how/why do they make so much noise, and what do they mean to us culturally. 

We also celebrate making it to 50 episodes!

Tune in and join us won't you?!
