The TradeWaiters 75: “Meal” by Blue Delliquanti with Soleil Ho

The TradeWaiters are back from another (probably pandemic-related) hiatus. For this episode, Jam, Jeff, and JD read Meal by Blue Delliquanti with Soleil Ho. Have you ever eaten a bug? Like, on purpose? Would you like to? Meal is more than just a great case for entomophagy (i.e. bug eating), cuisine with deep cultural roots in many parts of the world. It’s also a great story. It might even be the beginning of a new tradition of food manga made in North America.

Also mentioned in this episode:
O Human Star, also by Blue Delliquanti, and Beyond, New World, and FTL, Y’all!, anthologies they have contributed to.
Brooklyn Magazine, The Atlas Review, Paste, On She Goes, Edible Magazine, Taste, and B*tch, magazines that Soleil Ho has written for
Propaganda Podcast and Racist Sandwich, Soleil Ho’s podcasts
The Harrowing of Hell by Evan Dahm
