Hi Whats That Bug,
I am a big fan of your site! I read it pretty much everyday and have actually had one of my questions answered from you guys.
I am a field correspondent for the Insect News Network (INN). I work as an intern with Emmet Brady, the creator and host of the radio show and multimedia enterprise, which takes our audience “into the world of insects beyond the creepy and the crawly, to the fun, the fascinating, the profound and even the sublime.”
On the INN, we explore the microcosm through the lens of Cultural Entomology, which examines the parallels, connections and influences between humans and insects. We examine the world of the insects, spiders and other arthropods, on 3 platforms: the practical, the compelling and the sublime.
Our tagline is “It’s Not Just About Bugs . . . It’s About Us.” We build the bridge between Sciences, the Arts and the Humanities and examine the influence between the human culture and the world of 6-, 8- and multi-legged animals. We focus on people as much as we do the insects.
The INN has over 60 radio broadcasts (each with an accompanying 3-Mintue Insect Essential [a preview]) and more than 50 videos filmed around the country.
Here are a couple of examples:

I would welcome the chance to share future posts with you. I believe you will find them engaging and worthy of sharing with your audience as well.
Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions or comments. Perhaps in the future we might even be able to interview you on the show?
Let’s all spread the buzz . . .
