    S4 Ep. 10 Propolis and Burritos

    On the allotment, in their very own version of Breaking Bad, Jane and Esther attempt to become propolis tincture manufacturers on a grand scale. Their maths may not be up to the task, but Esther's homemade burritos and apple cake will lessen the pain of disappointment. Finally the girls end the season, to Jane's joy, sampling Esther's summer honey. Delicious.

    S4 Ep. 6 The Big Bee Field Trip (with Stephen Fleming)

    Esther tells Jane all about her big field trip to Basingstoke to find a drone congregation area (DCA). Her guide for the day was Stephen Fleming (Co-editor of BeeCraft Magazine) and along the way Esther also found out some fascinating facts about bee keeping history but also visited some wonderful fields of lavender - a dream day out indeed. Packed full of facts and fun, and also a cheeky trip to the pub!

Outlandish Chap ,

Deceptively gentle but hilarious.

Don’t be fooled by the seemingly homespun concept, this is a brilliantly funny podcast with two old mates occasionally talking about bees but mainly having a right old laugh. Recommended.

Beautiful Bees

Brilliant Podcast.
Jane and Esther are brilliant together.
I find it very informative and find the discussions they have are very funny. It has cheered me up during the pandemic.
Well done. Keep the episodes coming.
