Radiolab host, Lulu Miller, celebrates the launch of her kids’ show, Terrestrials. Bring your kids for an afternoon of critters and games with help from entomologist and educator, Sebastian Echeverri, and his adorable posse of insects! Also joining us is harpist Aviva Jaye performing a very special number. Feeling adventurous? Try Mexican dishes made with edible bugs provided by Brooklyn restaurant Citrico.
Terrestrials is a six-part podcast series for kids 8 and up, and listeners of all ages, that explores why the inhabitants and phenomena of the natural world are stranger than we think.
