Bizarre Bites: Tarantulas

Eight-Legged Treats Of all the foods I have eaten in my lifetime, the tarantula strikes me as one of the strangest from a psychological standpoint.

Tasting Thailand with Migrationology

While filming in Bangkok this past fall, I had the distinct pleasure of hanging with Mark Wiens, a prolific video blogger in Southeast Asia who also happens to be a Bizarre Foods mega-fan.
