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.
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.
Yappy, Antnee G, Tony S, and a “never too late” jump in by Schawee.
