Have you ever wondered about the difference between millipedes and centipedes? If so, wonder no more! Entomologist Dr. Art Evans and VPM radio producer Steve Clark discuss the finer points of myriapod identification. Art also shares two stories about his least favorite among the arthropods, centipedes.


Dr. Arthur V. Evans teams up with VPM Radio producer Steve Clark for a weekly feature, “What’s Bugging You?,” which airs during NPR’s Morning Edition. The program takes its name from another of Evans’ books “What’s Bugging You – A Fond Look at the Animals We Love to Hate.”

Tune in each Tuesday at 8:45 a.m. or at 5:44 p.m. on VPM News
