Ep26 - Octopus, Polpo, Pulpo, Tako: Takoyaki - My Delicious Dilemma

Throughout the world and throughout time, people and cultures have both revered and feared this eight-limbed, legendary Cephalopod - the octopus. We’ll look at the mythology and folklore of the octopus, their physiology and behaviour; which all strengthen their reputation as symbols of strength, intelligence and mystery.

Thanks Michi!!! xox
