Good job! I loved the woman who didn’t think the insects were a big deal. I did notice one thing that you tend to do in your TV appearances, less so here than on Colbert — you say “The fact is…” a lot. You might want to try to strike that from your TV vocabulary, because it comes across as filler.

Just shared your name with a new contact that’s due to be in a TV show soon. Went to the old website and got routed here and continue to love the work and progress you are making, Dave.
Tyra wasn’t much of a sport, but press is press, eh? Desenstization! Keep putting bugs in their faces and they can’t continue to get worked up over them. Let them watch us eating bugs and eventually they’ll start to realize they are only limiting their own potential for experience and, if they taste good, pleasure too!
Keep up the good work!

Great work your doing, I wish you the best of luck. Keep pushing this idea, our society needs it.
One idea though… When you run into strong opposition (which I’m sure you often do) you should make sure to mention that insects can be raised as food for poultry rather than direct consumption by humans. This won’t lead to as good an agricultural impact as when humans eat insects, but it can still be an improvement on our current system.
Poultry depends heavily on grains right now, which could be going to feeding poverty stricken humans. If poultry were fed primarily cultivated insects couldn’t we be saving a lot of grain for ourselves?
And eventually after insect production ramps up it would conceivably be easier to begin tempting human beings to introduce insects into their own diet.
