Last Cry of the Summer Cicada

Typical Kansas cicada (Photo by Aidan Loveland Koster)

As summer comes to a close, so too does the sound of the buzzing cicada. Commentator John "Richard" Schrock gives a final salute to these seasonal insects... and gives a tip of the hat to a Kansas professor who studied them.

Commentator John "Richard" Schrock is the director of biology education at Emporia State University, where he trains future biology teachers. He's also a regular contributor to Kansas Public Radio.
