Listen now:

For our first podcast, and just in time for the holidays, we explore the insect stop motion animation work of Ladislaw Starevitch, a Russian insect enthusiast. He created The Insects' Christmas, a lovely short film that’s perfect for the season. So leave out some cookies for Santa and some crumbs for the beetles and join us on Bug Bytes. (original post December 2009)
