Bananas for Kiwimana Buzz

Hello from the Pacific Northwest of Oregon! Iam a 3rd Year Beek with 7 hives and absolutely in love with this wonderful podcast! I have expanded my knowledge base ten fold from the array of guests and of course the incredibly wonderful info from Gary and Margaret! I love that this show promotes many styles of beekeeping and highlights the best of who’s who in this world of beekeepers! Recently I had to take a very long 8 hr drive and I listened to Kiwimana buzz the entire time! It really got me through! Best of all my children didn’t even complain and in fact thoroughly enjoyed it! Even the teenagers! My littlest is 9 years old and she’s very interested in bees and keeping! She now just shouts out Bananas!!! Anytime we see or hear of something cool regarding bees! Thank you for your fun and lighthearted presentation of the wonderful world of beekeeping!

LOVE Gary and Margaret!

As a new beekeeper, I relish everything I can read or listen to. Gary and Margaret are a joy to listen to and I learn something new with every podcast. They are fun and upbeat, unlike some bee podcasts that are droll and dreary. Keep up the great work down there!!!
