Reconsider The Lobster

In colonial times, lobster was routinely served to prisoners. It was called “the cockroach of the sea.” So what changed? On today’s show, we are bringing you an episode from our friends at Gastropod, a podcast that looks at food through the lens of science and history. They take a deep dive into the fascinating history, and biology, of the lobster. (Like, why is it so difficult to figure out a lobster’s age, and how it reproduces?) All your lobster questions will be answered.
