Bringing Back Hive Talkin, in a way

Back at the beeginning, I had an idea for a different podcast which was unfortunately sidelined to make way for the Bee Smart podcast featuring the Beehooligans. However, this was an awesome chat and I think you’ll really like this fella.

“Hive Talkin” was an early podcast effort made hoping to meet new beekeepers out there and find out what gets them all abuzz .

It didn’t get far as the Bee Smart Podcast featuring the Beehooligans began to take off.  However, much of what I had wanted to do with Hive Talkin” is now done within the Bee Smart podcast, which is great.

I thought though that I’d let you listen to this episode of Hive Talkin featuring Author, Teacher, beekeeper, and spicey honey enthusiast, Patrick Frievald.

The Return of the Bee Smart Podcast featuring the Beehooligans, Episode 33

Yes my friends, it’s here.  This first step back is a humble little episode, hosted by yours truly.  There are plans to make this more…companionable as it picks up steam again.

You will be able to listen to the full episode here on the embedded player in this post and you can listen through the whole lineup of Bee Smart podcasts on the Podcast Page of this website.  (eventually they’ll all bee there, I am still adding them in one at a time).

This episode discusses the return of the podcast and the timely topic of Honey Bee Taxonomy.

The Bee Smart beekeeping project podcast beegins again

Yes, things are getting back on track on especially awesome.

The Beehooligans Podcast will start recording again by the end of the Month and get at least one episode out by then.. We are jumping from being a weekly podcast to every two weeks instead.  

Also, we’re focusing on assembling a live, local group of beekeeperly people to a round table discussion and one or two of our alternately located Beehooligans via web conferencing in on the chat.

And hey, if you happen to be in the Omaha, NE area on one of the days we record, we’d love to have you sit in with us.

Podcast Changes

Due to issues involving online hosting of the Bee Smart Beehooligans podcast, we are in a position to enter a hiatus in recording and posting new episodes at of now.

We anticipate recording new episodes in the future.  When and who will be able to participate is unknown.

Personally, I want to thank all of the current Beehooligans for being such awesome cohorts and sharing their time and experiences.

I also must thank everyone who has been following and listening to the podcast for beeing such a great audience.

Some things are going to have to change, that is the way of life.  Hopefully, if we work diligently and effectively, those changes will be for the better.

Podcast SNAFU

I have the unfortunate position to inform our podcast listeners that the episode scheduled to release this past Saturday is unable to be made available.

So, the episode being recorded on Tuesday, September 19 will be released the same day in the afternoon/evening.

We will be doing a live recording this Friday from the Mangelsen’s store location as we set up the Bee Smart Info Booth and talk to visitors.  The original goal was to air this live on Friday, but due to certain technical limitations, that won’t be possible.

Instead, that recording will be aired this coming Saturday as a regular, but special, episode.
