Cicada Mania: periodical summer insect invasion marks a 17-year benchmark in time
Below, an extended cut NewsHour out-take video I requested featuring David Rothenberg, a musician who makes music with the cicadas. How cool is this guy? He is my favorite thing about this piece. And of course Pesco has blogged about him before here on Boing Boing, back in 2010!
And don't miss PBS NewsHour producer Jenny Marder's periodical cicada hunt with John Cooley, "a veteran expert of the behavior, distribution and unusual courtship rituals of these insects."
