Susan Askew - Entomologist

Love science and conservation? Want to discover new ways to protect our species? Elle Kaye chats with guests who work within the science genre, but whose job titles may need a little unpacking. Strap in for entomology, taxidermy, diaphonization, pet remains, human pathology and all those that work with specimens.

In episode 003, Elle chats with Susan about becoming an entomologist and lepidopterist, breeding and raising moths at home, and why we really shouldn't fear bugs.
