Phil Chandler, teacher and author of 'The Barefoot Beekeeper', talks about 'balanced beekeeping' and explains why he believes we need to change both the way we grow our food and the way we work with honeybees if we want them - and ourselves - to survive and thrive. Beekeeping has been all about honey production. Now we need to learn to value bees for their own sake - for their part in nature as pollinators of many plant species, both wild and cultivated. The Barefoot Beekeeper is available i ...
 
A NEW Beekeeping Podcast with a global perspective. Honeybee keepers, farmers and scientists love talking about bees and honey production and their audience will be intrigued by this hidden, female led, democracy producing one of the most ancient of sweet treats. What most bee keepers don’t talk about is their personal journey to mindfulness, reinvention or business success. In an increasingly stressful world where we are all looking to improve our sustainability, lighten our footprint and r ...

What if the government actually did cover something up in Roswell? What if yetis exist and are just really shy? What if super-intelligent lizards are wearing human skin suits, influencing international affairs and recording podcasts? Conspiracy theories are cool because they appeal to our evolved logical human brains and our stupid mammal idiot brains. So join comedian and skeptic Katelyn Hempstead as her brilliant friends try to convince her of these and many other conspiracy theories.

As recommended on BBC Radio Podcast Hour. Through an awe-inspiring audio journey, this podcast series brings to life the love of bees. It lifts the lid on a world of fascinating behaviours and wondrous endeavours. Who knew, for example, that to produce a pound of honey, a colony of honeybees must visit 2 million flowers? Or that a bumblebee with a full stomach is only ever 40 minutes away from starvation! We talk to people who are passionate about bees, from entomologists to botanists, scien ...

Hello hello! This week, I finish up my book review of 'Honeybee Democracy' by Thomas Seeley with chapter 10 and the epilogue. Chapter 10 is all about how we can apply the 'swarm smarts' of honeybee swarms to our human forms of governing and decision-making. The Epilogue is a succinct summary of everything covered in the book. I hope you enjoy it! A…
 
This week’s topic is the Honeybee, or if you want to be fancy, “Honey Bee”. Honeybees have been domesticated by humans to help crop pollination and for yummy honey. Everyone knows about the Western Honey Bee (Apis mellifera), and most people probably know of Eastern Honey Bee (Apis cerana), but did you know there are at least six other species of H…
 
“More than the sum of its parts” is practically the slogan of systems thinking. One canonical example is a beehive: individually, a honeybee is not that clever, but together they can function like shapeshifting metamaterials or mesh networks — some of humankind’s most sophisticated innovations. Emergent collective behavior is common in the insect w…
 
A Reckoning in Tulsa A century ago, Tulsa’s Greenwood neighborhood was a vibrant Black community. One spring night in 1921 changed all that: a white mob rioted, murdering as many as 300 Black residents and destroying their family homes and thriving businesses. Archaeologists are working to uncover one of the worst—and virtually unknown—incidents of…

One of the foremost historians of black and white Australia, Henry says now is the time to acknowledge how the country was founded. Frontier violence, the myth of peaceful settlement, and the failure of the British to make treaties with the First Nations have led to consequences we still live with today (CW: material might be distressing to ATSI li…
 
Shortly after I started my apiary I spotted a big piece in a national newspaper about the awards The Scottish Bee Company was winning for their honey and their discovery that Scottish honey contains 10 times more manganese than rivals across the globe. I had to know more and immediately searched for their social media. Following a hugely successful…
 
Lesbians! You know em, you love em, you are em. But what if we told you that lesbians were actually an invention of the Central Intelligence Agency?

You don't even know…

Old comb. What is old comb? Old comb is that which is darkened through generations of tiny bee's feet (ok, for the technically minded, tarsus and tarsal claws...) running across its surface. Is it good for years or should beekeepers pull and replace it? At what point should it be pulled? In this episode of Honey Bee Obscura, Kim and Jim discuss all…

In Part Three of our five-part Hive Types Series, we talk with Colorado Master Beekeeper and columnist Tina Sebestyen about the Long or Horizontal Langstroth.

Complexity is all around us: in the paths we walk through pathless woods, the strategies we use to park our cars, the dynamics of an elevator as it cycles up and down a building. Zoom out far enough and the phenomena of everyday existence start revealing hidden links, suggesting underlying universal patterns. At great theoretic heights, it all yiel…
 
What if aliens exist and they just think we're kind of boring? This is the provocative question bravely asked by our guest this week, returning fave Mel Cowan.

Spring inspections, especially early spring, need a balance of not too often, but often enough to avoid problems. The first thing you see is…what’s left from last fall. In the south, these inspections took place some time ago, and in the north, they are just wrapping up, but what you find early on will help determine what needs to be done now. Mite…
 
Pterosaurs, literally meaning “wing lizard," were flying reptiles that went extinct with the dinosaurs and were basically the birds of their time. Well, if birds could get up to the weight of a polar bear, have the wingspan of a small airplane, and the neck the size of a giraffe. Doesn't sound terrifying at all, right, Amber? Pterosaurs were the fi…

If you've ever shopped at a Trader Joe's, you know the deep and sense of doom that leak out of those palaces of peanut butter pretzels.
