SoCal Connected on KCET

Reporter Derrick Shore goes to a Mexican restaurant and tries their cricket tacos and visits the Rainbow Mealworms farm in Compton where billions of worms and other insects are raised and shipped out to feed mainly reptiles, but more recently humans. "SoCal Connected" also talks to a U.C. Riverside entomologist who says the ecological advantages of eating insects are many, and cultural barriers will have to be overcome to feed a global population that will climb to 9 billion by 2050.
