This week Nicholas and Alayna bug each other out with fascinating info about insects. We have everything you need to know about bees, ants, and other creepy crawlies. No drosophila flies were harmed in the making of this episode, unfortunately.

This week our first interview is with a masters-level scientist from the University of Guelph in Canada, Aaron Fairweather, who is an expert on ants and ant diversity.
