The cicadas are coming!

I love the summer sound of dog-day cicadas. This year, a large 17-year brood of the periodic cicadas is supposed to be hatching along the East coast. (By way of which I note what seems to be a growing frequency with which “-ageddon” and “-pocalypse” are used to make portmanteau words—so yes, this post is word-related.) If you’re a fan of Make and like your science DIY, Radiolab wants you to get in on the crowdsourcing fun.
