Very informative on what’s going on in the bee world.
I always learn something from those that you interview, even if it is an area that I’m not all that interested in! I always come away with something, and a lot of times I come away with something that I want to change or try in my beekeeping! Thank you for your diversity and down to earth perspectives!
Your almond economics pollination podcast
The podcast about almond pollination was absolutely awesome it was nice to hear about pollination from an economics standpoint. It was refreshing to hear about the fact that the growers need to look at the risk factors for the beekeeper and how it can affect him the grower. I truly enjoyed the podcast. Thanks Jeff and Kim.
