An interview with Amy Stewart, the author of a terrific book about dangerous vegetation called Wicked Plants, and the her new book Wicked Bugs. I asked Amy to tell me about the most dangerous bug, the most disgusting bug, the most fascinating bug, and so on. Then we talk about people who grow gardens filled with "wicked plants," and people who grow opium poppies and coca plants. Amy is a very knowledgeable and funny writer, and I had a lot of fun chatting with her.
