How governments and big corporations and business sell us happiness and well-being, with William Davies.
My guest is Megan Miller, the founder of Bitty Foods, a company that makes desserts out of cricket flour. Megan’s prior work in Global Media had her traveling to different parts of Asia and Latin America, where eating insects is a regular part of the diet. The idea of introducing edible insects to the Western culture came out of that experience, and her time in a pastry kitchen of a fine-dining restaurant informed her decision to use desserts as the medium. Cricket flour is high in protein, free of grains, and is packed with healthy fats and micro-nutrients. Are edible insects a part of our future? Listen to my interview with Megan Miller to find out!

Puerto Rico’s Crisis: Debt Peonage and 21st-Century U.S. Colonialism
Dr. Victor M. Rodriguez, professor of Chicano and Latino Studies at California State University of Long Beach, explains Puerto Rico’s current $73-billion debt crisis in the context of the island’s political status as a U.S. colony and the suitability of its continued indebtedness to U.S. and international financial interests, and governance by leaders in collusion with both.
Born in Puerto Rico, Rodriguez’s area of expertise is the racialization of Latino identity and its impact on political behavior. At CSULB he teaches courses emphasizing issues in social inequality: Wealth and Poverty in Latino Communities, Chicano/Latino Politics, and on Identity Assimilation in Chicano and Latino Life, The Ethnic Experience, and Latino Population in the United States. He is the author of Latino Politics: Race, Ethnicity, Gender and Class in the Mexican American and Puerto Rican Experience in the United States (2012).
