    Segment 1: Mmm Mmm Good?
    From the Obsessed page of the latest Pop Sci magazine, we’re embracing “The Insect Cookbook.’ Professor Marcel Dicke shares the health benefits of creepy crawlers.

    Segment 2: Just Like Beef
    This segment will get your culinary juices flowing… if you like to eat termites. Professor of Etymology and author of “The Insect Cookbook,” Marcel Dicke, fills us in on bug mise en place.

    Segment 3: Mealworm Quiche? Sure!
    From starters to dessert, Marcel Dicke has a recipe for you! Granted, those recipes may contain locusts, termites, or mealworms. We find out which bugs are safe to eat and especially tasty.

    Segment 4: Titan Arm
    The makers of Titan Arm have made an untethered, upper body exoskeleton sans the prohibitive price tag of similar technology. Elizabeth Beattie shares the inspiration and design process of the Titan Arm.

    Segment 5: One Man Band
