"Two billion people in 80% of the world’s countries consume insects as part of their daily diet, and entomophagy has been practiced by those cultures for thousands of years.”

In today’s bonus ReWild Yourself Podcast episode, I talk with the creators of the new documentary film The Gateway Bug, Johanna B. Kelly and Cameron Marshad. Johanna and Cameron are passionate about entomophagy and its potential to massively improve the sustainability of our current broken food industry. During the making of The Gateway Bug, they learned the ins and outs of the booming American edible insect industry, and they give us an inside look into the current landscape and what we can expect in the future. I hope this interview leaves you inspired to begin including edible insects in your diet!

EPISODE BREAKDOWN:

  • How Johanna and Cameron started working on this project
  • The insect food industry & the existing broken food industry
  • Eating whole insects vs eating insect powder
  • Hierarchy of animals
  • Nutritional content of insects
  • Efficiency of raising insects for food
  • Insect foods in grocery stores and restaurants
  • The future of insect food
  • How to get involved with The Gateway Bug
  • Prognosis for the future of the human species

During the winter season, we tend to spend more time indoors. This winter I’ve been spending my indoor-time honing some ReWilding skills — such as my hand drill practice (friction fire), tending to my fishing lines (for ice-fishing), and processing foods from the fall harvest. My partner Avani and I like to watch a movie, documentary, or episodic show while we carry out the rhythmic processing of our acorns into flour. While there’s some obvious irony in the idea of using modern media to “inspire” ReWilding, video has all but replaced the stories told by our elders around the fire each night. I am always on the hunt for fresh, inspirational media and thought I’d share a few of my favorites — some new, some old — with you!
