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.

 

 

Thar bee a new Beehooligan on the podcast

Debbie Horne is an admin on the sooper dooper Facebook group, “Beekeeping Techniques”.  She’s also an accomplished third year beekeeper who likes to chase cutouts and swarms.

Lil Deb-bee’s fb profile pic beecuz she wouldn’t let us use another one.

Best of all, she ain’t worried none by the likes of our Beehooligans.  When she first made a guest appearance on the podcast, she put Yappy in his place.  On her next appearance, she not only was the only other person on air besides Big Bear, she put him in his place too.

The Beehooligans might find their shenanigans yanked out from under them, or worse, turned against them and hilarity will ensue.  Whether putting them fellas in check or out rascalling them, it looks that this is one lady beek that can hold her own.

Welcome to the Bee Smart beekeeping project Lil Deb-bee and may the force bee with you.
