FROM THIS EPISODE

Just 16 months after his capture, the leader of Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel, El Chapo, has escaped from prison in Mexico for the second time. What are the ramifications for Mexico and Mexico’s relationship with the U.S.? And an inmate in the L.A. County Jail says he was handcuffed for 32 hours without food and given only a cup of water. Now ten jail employees have been relieved of duty pending an investigation. Next, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker became the 15th Republican to enter the presidential race today. Candidates on both sides are competing over who’s going to do the most for the middle class. But how convincing are they? Then, in the West, we don’t generally eat insects, or play with them, or keep them as pets. But in Japan… they do. Finally, Comic-Con is usually in the spotlight for movie news, but television made a strong showing this year, with exclusives and a standing ovation for ABC’s new Muppets show.

Can the West Overcome Its Insectophilia? 12 MIN, 36 SEC

In the West, we don’t generally eat insects, or play with them, or keep them as pets. We don’t go on beetle-watching tours, and kids don’t buy insect collecting kits at the dollar store, let alone live creepy-crawlies from vending machines at the local 7-Eleven. But in Japan… they do.
