Into The Wild

Flies with Dr Erica McAlister

April 7, 2020

They're in the kitchen. They're in the garden. They zoom into your room when the window is open. They can seem annoying BUT they're important. Flies.

On today's show I spoke with senior curator of Diptera (Flies) at London's Natural History Museum & author of The Secret Life of Flies, Dr Erica McAlister. From her favourite species of fly, to why they're important & to what actually makes a species, Erica covers it all (whilst out on her daily government authorised walk). It was wonderful to chat to someone with such knowledge & passion about this world of insects.

If you'd like to keep up to date with projects & shows that Erica is working on, you can do so by following her on Instagram & Twitter @flygirlNHM
