Arthro-Pod EP 96: Writing about entomology with Eric Eaton


The arthro-pod team had the pleasure of interviewing Eric Eaton, an author and professional entomologist, who is a true maverick in creating opportunities for himself. Though he holds no degree in entomology, he has established himself a science communicator and entomology expert on several platforms. Find out why pursuing a degree in entomology was a disappointment to him, how he struggled with career identity for several years, the challenges and joys of being a writer, the problem with industry and science, and advice for young people with an interest in entomology.
