    Tarantulas… You know them best as giant, hairy spiders. But in some parts of the world, they’re also known as “dinner!” Hunting, roasting, and selling tarantulas is a part of life in parts of Venezuela and Cambodia. In the episode of Why Would You Eat That, we serve up 8-legged treats to all our friends!

    We’ve eaten our share of bugs around here, but spiders are a whole ‘nother matter. While furry, these critters are muscle food, packing in more protein than a 6-ounce steak. We may have another super-special bodybuilding elixir on our hands! …Maybe.

    Why Would You Eat That is back for now, thanks to our partnership with Zagat - But if you want to keep the crazy foods flowing to our offices, head on over to Patreon, and become a patron of the show!
